Im curious how to accelerate senna alata seeds. The candlestick tree. They are very hard, soaking for several days didnt seem to help..Ive noticed that they need a long exposure to 70degrees plus temps to germinate in the wild, but would like to get some started earlier...thx

SOAK THE SEED IN WATER FOR 6 HOURS THEN LIGHTLY COVER THE SEED SOIL TEMPERATURE 70F may need bottom heat.

I have actually started this plant by using vermiculite in a plastic bag, and moistened. I cut a leaf off and stood it up in the vermic. In 2 weeks I had roots off the leaf. Small roots, but roots. Good luck.
