Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms, we recommend you research these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible or need preparation before they are safe to eat or use. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. The purchaser is responsible for ensuring they are fit for their intended use.

Pre-treatment of smoke recommended
This genus is responsive to smoke, and although it is not critical for the germination of this species, it is usually beneficial in reducing the number of days to germination and increasing germination rates.Smoke treatments are available by clicking here.
Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix.
Sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed if required to hold the seed in place. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Place in a warm, shaded, or semi-shaded position. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
Germination generally occurs in around 24-28 days but may take longer depending on the conditions.
