Azadirachta indica

Soak seeds in water for 12-24 hours to soften the seed coat.
Plant in a mix of sand and compost or well-draining potting soil.
Maintain consistent moisture and warmth (around 70-90°F / 21-32°C).
Ensure the soil doesn’t dry out completely during the germination period.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
