Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.
Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like
require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Aesculus flava seeds will usually germinate in 7 days, if conditions are favourable.
Soak stored seeds before sowing. Sow with scar down. Best sown in situ as a long, fragile, taproot grows quickly. Temperature necessary for germination is reduced from 18°C to 7°C by overwintering (cold stratification)
