Exotic and Tropical Plants Seeds

The category of exotic plants contains a variety of plant seeds from the tropics. Among them are heirloom agricultural crops and fruit trees and many special spices. Hobby gardeners often refer to tropical plants as "exotic plants" - a somewhat imprecise concept, as "exotic" simply means "foreign" and is therefore a very relative term, which dates back to the reference frame of the former colonial powers and thus implies a European perspective.

The cultivation of tropical and exotic plants from seed is a passion for many gardeners and often requires special equipment, as these plants need different climatic conditions. Additional heat, moisture or greenhouse cultivation are often necessary for tropical seeds, so that they not only germinate, but also develop into healthy plants.

Exotic container plants and potted plants indoors

Many species from tropical and subtropical climates are very decorative and are perfect as houseplants in planters or pots. Tropical green plants often form a majestic foliage and, especially when it comes to plants from the lower layers of the jungle, need only little light. Flowering plants, however, are only suitable for very sunny locations in the house, or need artificial plant light to flower.
Popular evergreen houseplants are many kinds of ferns, dieffenbachia or ornamental bananas - but also coffee trees, various palm trees and cacti can be grown from seeds and cultivated very well in different locations in the house.
