Best to grow seeds in fall/winter indoors or in early spring outdoors.

於室內秋/冬播種或初春時戶外播種.

1.Use a clean pot or container fill with any well drained soil or growing medium.

1.取乾淨盆或容器,使用培養土或田土+河沙或排水佳的介質1:1
2.Moist the soil or growing medium first, remove the extra water.  Sow seeds on the top of soil, do not cover if soil is too wet. Place the pot in partial shade location with good air flow.   Normally seeds will germinate in 2-5 days.
2.先澆水再播種子在表面. 因為種子細小,在長出6片本葉前用盆底吸水方式給水.  不需覆土,置通風半日照處等待發芽. 若溫度不是太低,應該在2-5天發芽.
3.When seedlings turn green, you may place the pot or container in full sun location.  Do not let seedlings too wet or dry out.
3.本葉長出兩對後改全日照.  注意小苗溼度勿過濕也不要乾掉.
4.Transplant the seedlings when they start to branch out.  Their growth speed will be fast then.  Plant them in the ground or use bigger, shallow pot.   To increase the coverage, you can start to propagate them by cuttings.  Torn or cut the branches and plant them in well drained soil or growing medium in shape of fish scales.  From my experience, this is the faster and the denser way to grow big area.
4.等開始自然分枝後生長速度會變快,可將較長的枝條切下扦插,可促多分枝增加覆蓋率. 因為匍匐的特性最好扦插枝條呈扇形攤開以魚鱗狀散開扦插,我的經驗是用此法繁殖最快最密.
