Madhuca longifolia

Madhuca longifolia: Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hours and plant in a well-draining soil mix. Keep soil consistently moist and warm around 80-90°F (27-32°C) with partial sunlight.

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.
