The seeds are like dust. Sow them on the surface of moist seed compost, do not let them dry out. Put them in a heated propagator with a night time temp of at least 21c and keep it as constant as possible. Once germinated, keep at min of 15c. They grow slowly and are prone to diseases and cold.

Not the easiest to grow but not impossible

Start early if you can provide the right conditions because even small plugs seem to take for ever to get going.
