Grow notes:

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 16-20°C

  1. Sow seed on the surface of a porous mix, do not bury deeply as the seed will lodge into the pores of the mix when watered.
  2. Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  3. Ensure the mix is kept warm and moist but not waterlogged.
  4. Germination generally occurs in 21-28 days.

General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
