Propagate at 15 to 20C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should begin to take place in 14 to 21 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, ventilate gradually, maintain a temperature of around 15C and take care not to over-water.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots. When large enough, plant out into moist soil or water up to 40cm deep in a sunny or semi shaded position.
