Germination First, you can scarify the seeds. Soak seeds in water for 2 days. Use a mix of humus, garden soil and sand. Plant seeds at 1 inch of depth. In winter, keep the soil humid. In summer, keep the soil damp. Give your plant a monthly fertilizing treatment. Germination time is usually long. It will take about a year before leaves start appearing. Your seeds should germinate in 4 months, but it could be more. Don’t get discouraged.
Scarification / Stratification 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 being more readily absorbed.
