About Florida Milkvine

Florida Milkvine, a rare and striking vine native to Florida’s unique ecosystem, is distinguished by its spiny pods and the vital role it plays in local biodiversity. Known for its resilience and distinctive beauty, the Florida Milkvine is not just a plant but a piece of Florida’s natural heritage.

Germination Instructions

Preparation: Soak seeds for 24 hours in room temperature water to soften the outer shell.

Sowing: Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep in well-draining soil. Ensure the planting medium remains moist but not waterlogged.

Location: Choose a location that receives partial sunlight, as the Florida Milkvine thrives under the canopy of taller plants, mirroring its natural habitat.

Planting Instructions

When to Plant: Best planted in early spring or late fall to avoid the extreme heat of summer.

Soil: Prefers sandy, well-draining soil rich in organic matter.

Watering: Regularly water to keep the soil evenly moist until germination, which typically occurs within 2-3 weeks.
