Sowing: The seeds are generally cold germination and must be stratified (cold treated). To do so, the seeds are placed in small pots with previously moistened sowing soil, lightly pressed and covered only once with soil.

Then store them in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 weeks. (Never in the freezer!). During this time, the soil must not dry out and must be kept moist constantly (no water logging). Also, ensure regular ventilation to avoid mold formation.

After stratification, place the pot in a bright and cool (approx. 15°C ) location. Germination of the seeds is very irregular and extends for several weeks to months.
