Planting and care

The Portia tree is able to grow in the wide range of soil types. The seeds should be scarified (the seed coat penetrated). This can be done using sandpaper, nail clippers, or by cracking with a hammer. Care must be taken to avoid damaging the inner part of the seed. The seeds do not require soaking. The seeds should be planted in the sterile potting mix at a depth of about twice the diameter of the seed. Germination takes 14 to 28 days.
