How to Grow Dwarf Poached Egg Plant from Seed

Incorporating organic matter into the soil not only enhances its fertility but also helps with moisture retention, providing an ideal environment for your Dwarf Poached Egg to flourish

  • Germination: Dwarf Poached Egg typically germinates at temperatures ranging from 60-70°F (15-24°C). To expedite germination, consider covering the planted seeds with a plastic dome or plastic wrap, creating a miniature greenhouse environment, which aids in maintaining ideal moisture and temperature conditions
