Scarify the seeds by lightly filing or soaking them in warm water overnight. Plant the scarified seeds about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) deep in well-draining potting mix or directly in a prepared garden bed. Place them in a warm and humid environment, maintaining consistent moisture without overwatering. Germination can take several weeks to months. Once the seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves, transplant them into individual pots or the desired garden location or bonsai them for indoor use. Provide adequate sunlight, regular watering, and occasional pruning as they mature.
