Sow seed immediately on receipt, in pots or trays of moist peat/sand mix compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 1-4 months.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3inch) pots or trays. When well grown, pot on into 13cm (5inch) pots and later into 20cm (8inch) containers.
