If you have many seeds, it is fine to direct sow.  If you do not have many seeds to grow, you can try the method below:
種子數量多的話,直播便可. 數量少的話可以參考以下孵法:
1.Remove or scratch the shell before you grow them.  It will reduce the germination period.  Light sanding the seeds a bit will help seeds to absorb water for growing quickly.
1.破殼或完全去殼為佳. 有破殼比沒破殼快幾倍時間. 不諳破殼的人用砂紙把殼磨稍薄也勉強可以. 不可傷及種仁.
2.Prepare planting pot with potting soil with well drained medium 1:1 ratio.  Do not cover the seeds.   Move the pot to partial shade location with good air flow after watering.  Seeds should germinate around 5-12 days.  (If removed shell of seeds first before growing, it will take 3-5 days to sprout, 7-10 day to be green.)
2.準備苗盆以培養土和排水佳介質混合1:1點播,不需覆土. 澆水後置半日照通風處. 應該5-12天內發芽.  (種植前有去殼的話3-5天就會發芽,7-10天轉綠.)
3.Transplant the seedlings to individual pot when they have 4-6 leaves.  Full sun.
3.發芽後小苗要等月本葉4-6葉稍為壯碩後再移植. 移植後種植改全日照.
