Planting & Care
Place 2 or 3 seeds in 7cm (3”) pots of seed compost, giving enough water to make the mixture barely moist. Cover the pot with clear plastic wrap. Place the pots in bright light at a temperature of 18 to 21°C (65 to 70°F). Water enough to keep soil from drying out completely.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 40° C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Potting soil used for palm plants should be well draining, and any container used for the plant should have ample drainage holes in the bottom.
  • Soil should be moist at all times during the growing season, although it is essential to avoid over-saturation, which can lead to root rot.



Care:

  • Seeds may also be placed in hot water and soaked overnight.
  • Place seeds in a moist soil medium, cover with a light sprinkle of soil and place in a warm, bright location.
  • Seeds generally take about a week to germinate, according to Guide to Houseplants.



Special Feature:
The capsule walls fall away and release three globose seeds with a white, tallow-containing covering. Seeds usually hang on the plants for several weeks. The tree is found throughout the southern United States. It is cultivated in parts of India.
