Sowing and cultivation 

Mimule seeds with half-open flowers need cold stratification and then light to germinate.

Sprinkle the seeds on the surface, then spray a little water to ensure good contact with the soil. Place the container in a plastic bag, then in the refrigerator for 60 days.

Then return the container to room temperature and light and make sure not to let the surface of the potting soil dry out. A small daily surface spray can help.

You can also sow directly in place in the fall, stratification will then take place naturally outside, but the germination rate may be reduced.

The half-open flowered mimulus needs cool, moist, even soggy soil, and has no problem with occasional flooding.
