Pre-sowing Treatment:   Soak the seeds for 48 hours.

Sowing Instructions:   Sow at any time of the year very thinly on the surface of moist seed compost, eg John Innes.  Do not cover the seed.   Seal in a polythene bag or place in a propagator and maintain an optimum temperature of 20-25C.  Germination should take place in 1-3 months and can be erratic hence the need to sow thinly. 

Growing Instructions:    When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up into small pots and grow on in slightly cooler conditions in plenty of light but shaded from direct sunlight.  Repot as necessary and place in a sunny position, shaded from the midday sun in summer.  Needs a minimum temperature of 10C but can be placed outdoors in summer.
