|Purple Orchid Tree
|Bauhinia is easily propagated from seed. First, you can scarify the seeds, but this is not a must. Sow the seeds 1-2 cm deep in sandy well drained potting soil, placed in a warm position and kept moist, not soaking wet. Germination should occur within 3-4 weeks but it can take longer, don't give up. The process can be speeded up by soaking the seed overnight in hot water.
|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.
