How to prepare the seeds

  • These trees are tropical and will not need a cold stratifying period.

  • Soak in initially warm water over night.
  • Sow in compost so the seeds are standing up right and only the very top is visible. This will allow you to notice if you've sown the seeds upside down. If the large tap root is pointing upwards, simply rotate the seed so the tap root is facing down.

  •  Make sure that these seeds are always in a warm spot. Direct sunlight will be fine after the tree sapling is a month old. But protect them before hand.

  • You can start the growing process at any time of year, due to keeping them inside.
  • Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Facebook would be the fastest option. If in doubt, please watch our video, "How to grow trees from seed" on our website menu bar.
