GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
For faster germination, soak the seeds in slightly hot water for 24-48 hours, followed by 90 days cold stratification before sowing in sterile gardening soil.
This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds. Mixed in seeds with slightly moistened vermiculite or peat, only damp in a ziplock bag. Close zip bag shut and store it in the salad crisper compartment of your refrigerator. If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.
Keep damp soil, not soaking wet. Keep pot in warm place at +20-+24C.
Germination can take 2-3 months. It can be more depending on their degree of unbroken dormancy, don't give up.
