|Common name||Royal Poinciana|
|Germination||First, scarify the seeds. Soak seeds in water for 2 days. Use a mix of humus, manure and garden soil. Plant at a depth of 1 ½ inches deep in a fresh soil. Keep it moist during the hot months and slightly humid during winter. Place your plant under a full sun, but protect it from the wind. Germination could take several months, depending on the climate. 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.
