My abuliton seeds are not sprouting

Orland Park, IL(Zone 5b)

I planted the abutilon 16 days ago. I planted several other types of seed at the same time and they have popped. Does abutilon need anything special. I do not know the exact name of the plant, however it produces an abundance of apricot colored, bell shaped flowers. Thanks

As Far as I know the best way to increase your stock of these lovely plants is by cuttings taken between May to August in half peat/ sand in temp of 59-64 c and then harden them off when rooted and grow on the following May - September depending on where you live and your winter temp.

You can grow from seed but not till about March-April and they do not come true from seed (don't look same as the parent plant) treet temp wise as for cuttings.
Good Luck. WeeNel.
