Germination guide
Acacia sophorae seeds will usually germinate in 21 days. Sow seeds about 2mm deep in a Well drained seed sowing mix at about 25C.

Soak in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately. Seeds that don't swell can be gently scarified.

Soak in warm water for 4 hours.
