...difficult to germinate and need up to 1 year to
Treat like a banana, soak the hard seed for 3 days, keeping the water warm (i pop a plastic dish in to a heated
propagator), alternatively you could refresh the water.After soaking, rub the seeds between two pieces of sandpaper.Plant
in a mixture of 25% peat, 25% sand, 25% Perlite, 25% vermiculite. The mixture should be sterilised (i pop mine
in the microwave). Once cooled, plant the seeds about half 2cm deep, and place in a warm propagator (about 30C).
Germination normally takes about 7months - and so far, I have had 60% germination in this way. KEEP HUMID. Plants
love humidity, I place place the seedlings in small pots on a gravel tray, covered with a propagator lid.
