- Seeds should be sown in a fresh state.
- Take away the seeds just before the pod bursts open or immediately after the bud's opening.
- Take out the red-orange coating from the seed. This can be done more simply if you soak them in water for only some days.
- After that squeeze out the firm, black seeds and wash them carefully to remove the oily coating that prevents them from absorbing moisture and food.
- Don't let the seeds dry out. Sow in a light fertilizer of two parts peat, one part loam and one part sand.
- Cover up with 1/2" of compost.
- Do not forget to cover the tray or pot to keep up the moisture and protect the seed.
