Temperature and Humidity

Morning glories are very hardy plants and can easily tolerate temperatures both cold and warm. That being said, in order for them to grow from seed, they should be planted once the ground temperature has reached at least 64 degrees Fahrenheit. They will be an annual plant in areas that drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit and perennials in warmer climates. Additionally, they require no special humidity needs.

Morning Glory Care

Morning glories can be easily started from seed in early spring, and you don't need to prune or deadhead them as they grow. Have a trellis or other support in place wherever you plant your seeds and the vines will soon find the support and train themselves to grow up it.
