Sowing: First, scarify the seeds. Soak seeds in water for 1- 2 days. Use a mix of humus, manure, and garden soil. Plant at a depth of 1 ½ inch deep in fresh soil. Keep it moist during the hot months and slightly humid during winter. Place your plant under full sun, but protect it from the wind. Germination could take from a few days to several months, depending on the climate.                                                                                                                        Scarification: Seed coats may be so hard that they are impermeable to water. They need to be scratched or broken using a knife or sandpaper, in order to germinate. Chip the seeds with a sharp knife or make a few swipes with a sharp-edged file or use sandpaper to allow moisture to be more readily absorbed.
