Vinca, Arizona Mix is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful mix, wonderful flowers. Vincas are among the prettiest and most wonderful of all flowers. I have planted them nearly every year in my mother's front flower bed and she gets loads of compliments. There are a few things that everyone should know about growing them, especially growing them from seeds. Firstly, they are heat loving plants and need lots of warmth to germinate well and grow properly. Secondly, they are very acid loving, and I had several failures in growing them from seeds until I realized this. Thirdly, they need more fertilizer, especially Nitrogen, than most other flowers. I water them with MiracleGrow for acid-loving plants like azaleas and rhododendrons, etc, adding 1-2 tablespoons of ordinary vinegar to each gallon of their water. This allows them to grow healthy and vigorously. But if they grow well for you, they are the greatest! See my plants grown from seeds below. The one on the left grew like a monster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bedding and edging plant This plant does great in the Inter-Mountain region and holds up to the heat and low humidity. I barely press the seeds into the seed formula. The seeds germinate best in a warming tray, but I keep them in complete darkness by covering them with a piece of black foam-board until they start to germinate. (This was recommended and works great and my average germination rate has gone from around 50% to better than 80%.) As soon as they start germinating I remove the foam-board allowing the light to get through, then a couple of days later I slightly open the plastic cover as I have found that if the seedlings are kept in a closed environment, like a completely closed seed tray cover, they get too moist which causes them to die off presumably from Damping Disease. As soon as the plants have adult leaves, I either transplant them or cover them with more soil to aid in the sturdiness of the seedlings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vinca, Arizona Mix I was hesitant to start flowers for my front porch from seed, but decided to give it a try last year. I planted these seeds in a window size seed starter with cover and used a heat mat underneath. Once the seedlings were about 2-3 inches high, I moved them to a sunny (south-facing) window and removed the cover. I received quite a few compliments on these flowers from neighbors, and they could not believe I had started them from seed. The dark green leaves make the bright flowers pop!
