  • 1. Plant your seeds in pots if temperatures get below 16 °C. Butterfly pea flowers thrive in warm, tropical environments. If you know the weather is going to dip into colder territory, plant your seeds in pots so you can bring it inside when you need to.


    2. Soak the seeds in water for 12 hours to soften the casings. Butterfly pea seeds need water to open up and get their shoots ready. Pour your seeds into a bowl, then cover them in water and let them sit overnight. 


    3. Fill a medium-sized pot with a mix of sand, compost, and potting soil. Make sure the pot has drainage holes at the bottom so your plant doesn’t get waterlogged. Mix together equal parts of sand, compost, and potting soil to make a well-draining mixture, then fill your pot up all the way. 


    4. Dig a small hole about  2.5 cm deep in the soil. The hole doesn’t have to be very deep—about 2.5 cm is fine. Poke 1 finger into the soil and make a little opening for the seed to nestle into.  


    5. Put 1 seed in the hole and cover it with soil. Gently smooth the potting soil over the hole to cover it up, but don’t tamp down super hard. You only need to plant 1 seed in each hole since butterfly pea flower seeds are usually very successful.  


    6. Water the seed well to establish it in the dirt. These plants love water, so go ahead and give them more than you think they need. Make sure the dirt is wet, and don’t stop watering until you can hear water running out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. 


    7. Put the pot in a sunny spot so it gets 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily. If you’re keeping your plant indoors, put it next to a sunny window. If you want to start the seeds outside, put the pot in a bright spot on balcony or porch. Germination should occur within 14 days. The plant will usually begin to flower in 3 months.
