Establishment

Warm season grasses such as Seashore paspalum should be seeded when nightime air temperatures are consistently 77 degrees or greater (generally between the months of April and October). Germination is delayed if soil tempera-tures are below 65 degrees F. Emergence can be anywhere between 14 and 21 days. The higher the soil temperature, the quicker the germination as long as there is adequate moisture (irrigation). Establishment in 8 to 10 weeks depend-ing on date of planting.
