How to grow
Fig Marigold and other Mesembryanthemum genus member seeds should be sown outdoors sequentially from just after the last frost of spring until the end of May; this will result in a long blooming period. It is best to sow the seeds on the surface into a sunny part of the garden that has good drainage. Fig Marigolds prefer a soil that is sandy and dry, ideally the soil should also have a poor nature. If growing Fig Marigold indoors first then start the process about 3 months in advance. The seeds will take about three weeks to germinate in the dark and at a temperature of about 18 to 24 degrees Centigrade. Once growing smaller species of Mesembryanthemum can be put out following the last frost of spring at about 15cm apart, and larger varieties at about 20 to 30cm apart.
