Germination
 

Very difficult to grow from seed. Smoke treatment may improve germination rate although it will likely still be low. Germination rate may potentially improve after storing seed for an unknown time. A combination of heat and smoke treatments may also help.

Germination may start after 4 weeks but may take longer.
