  • I have purchased some poppy seeds and even sprouted them but they only get about 1-2 inches and then they want 2 fall over sideways and most of them die. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Everywhere I've read any information its said that poppies are really easy to grow but I'm having such a difficult time. Any advice to HELP me out. PLEASE

  • Well, if you you haven't yet been to our How to Grow Poppies Tutorial Page + which also includes a detailed Instructional Video, I suggest you do that:


    The Questions/Comments below the Video can actually be more informative than the actual Tutorial itself. This is because whenever a User would Posts a Question, I replied with a greatly Detailed answer.
    But there are many reasons for them falling over. It can be anything from Temperature (too high - Poppies prefer temps to be just above freezing and no hotter than about 65 Degrees ˚F.
    Once they have matured, they can withstand Temps up to 85 to 90 Degrees ˚F - but any hotter, they will suddenly flop over and die before they even hit the ground,
    Another reason is sometimes people don't realize that Poppies require LIGHT to Germinate. This means you're either using an Indoor Grow System (which is rare with Poppies), or, you're most likely planting them outdoors I assume.
    If my assumptions are correct, than that opens up the "Bird & Slug" Factor. How are u protecting your seeds & Sprouts from birds & Slugs? Because they are the main two culprits known for the "Stopping-of-the-Popping" (when it comes to sprouts at least)
    Slugs enjoy tender young sprouts, while Birds will not only eat your seeds out of the ground before your seeds get a chance to sprout, but they'll eat your Sprouts too since the Seeds usually remain on one of the two leaves.
    LASTLY, I actually just finished shooting a Video Tutorial about this, but i's currently in the editing phase - but the other explanation is that it's perfectly normal for Poppies to create for themselves an extra 1/2″ length of Stem towards the base which may make them appear to “lay down” or “Flop Over” during the Seedling stages.

    This becomes useful later in their Lives when their Pods cause them to become Top-Heavy and they need to be able to withstand heavy winds without the risk of their stems breaking because their Seeds take 2 to 4 Weeks to mature inside the Pod after flowering, but ONLY if the Plant is still ROOTED with Stem IN TACT.

    So which do you suspect?
    -Temperature?
    -Lack of Light?
    -Pests

    Also, are you growing i Pots? Indoors?, or Outdoors?
    HOPE THIS HELPS,
    -ADMIN

    • I start all my seeds inside. I start them in the garage. I have an indoor grow lamp I have been using to help. Where I live its really hot outside. I live in Louisiana where the heat can b brutal. I've watched the tutorial video and it has been helpful but it seems that I'm still doing something wrong. Is there anywhere I can find a live plant 2 help me get started. I so want some of these cause the flowers are amazing. I need all the help I can get.

      • We don't sell them. That's because poppies are nearly impossible to transplant.
        You must have skipped that part of the Tutorial *LOL* :)i

        (P.S.:Read the Comments and answers whenever you don't find the answer you're looking for in the main section)

  • *The Trade Section is also a good place to Trade certain Categories of Botanicals such as Kratom, or Poppy Pods (for dried arrangements)* Hello. Do you by any chance sell poppy pods for dried arrangements?
