Mix the seeds with the wet compost and place it in a transparent plastic bag (zipper with pressure), and seal. Germination does not require a light. The tropical species need heat, 30ºC/90ºF approximately.Check every week if signs of activity appear by seeking white roots through the plastic. Make sure that the medium does not dry. The seeds can need 2 weeks to 2 years (or more) to germinate; however, the majority will germinate after 4-6 weeks. Plant each seedling in a large narrow pot with a well drained medium, and place them in a luminous place, but not in full sun.
