Germination guide
Adansonia gregorii seeds will usually germinate in 21-365 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Sow seeds about 2mm deep in a Peaty 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 hand hot water.
