It is very easy to collect their seed pods to get seeds if you or your family have a plant in the garden. Their growth rate is slow so in garden centres or nurseries the price is high. Besides propagation of stem cuttings, propagate them from seeds you can get more. They are spring flowering shrubs, tolerant shade and evergreen through winter. They all like slightly acidic soil.

1.soil/medium must be well drained, use shallow container to sow seeds. If possible, sterilize the soil/medium first.

2.Keep soil moist but too wet. Sow seeds on the surface of soil. Do not cover the seeds. Leave the container where is partial shade. Seeds will germinate in 10-20 days. Will grow the first set of leaves in 8-10 weeks. They are easy to grow but slow, so be patient!

    • 種莢很容易摘取因為是頂生花. 取下種莢後用紙包好摺起放在乾燥處(我放暖氣出口處),很快種莢會因乾燥而爆開將大部份的種子彈出(所以要將它們放在摺起的紙口袋/信封內便於收集). 種子雖細小,發芽率幾乎100%喔,看起來除了生長速度不快外,其實倒蠻好種的.
