Sowing: Soak seeds overnight in cool, non-chlorinated water and then refrigerate the seeds (approximately 40 degrees F) in the moist medium for 30 days.  The moist medium could be moist sand, moist potting soil, moist coir, or moist peat.  Note that our recommendation is moist, not sodden and that we are recommending refrigeration not freezing.  After this pretreatment, plant the (still moist) seeds.  Sow on surface, barely cover with soil and press in firmly and keep evenly moist until germination. When we say to barely cover with soil, we truly do mean to use a very thin layer.  Actually, the best orientation is to half-cover the seed with soil and tamp firmly, leaving a portion of the seed showing to the light.   Use a greenhouse, shade house, or grow lights.  Germination occurs 15 days after sowing.   Seedlings are slow-growing and will require about 60 days to transplant.  Once past the seedling stage, the plant is fast growing.
