Start Lobelia seed indoors 10 - 12 weeks before the last frost in your region. Since Lobelia seeds are very small, sprinkle them on top of finely prepared soil without covering them. After all danger of frost is passed, transplant Lobelia seedlings spacing them 6 inches apart. Remove flower spikes after blooming to produce further growth.
You can also plant Lobelia directly outdoors. However, Lobelia seeds started outdoors will begin flowering two months after seed was sown.

They're growing on nicely. It is too early for transplanting, but I will try to provide an update as time grows by.
These seeds are very tiny. I sowed the seeds following the instruction provided.
They began to germinate in 3 weeks and had a very high rate of germination.
I followed the instructions exactly and only few seed germinated.
Buying these for second year and good germination rate. They looked amazing ! They need light and heat for germination.
The germination was great! They are still young plant so I can't comment the the color or bloom.
