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.
Caesalpinia gilliesii seeds will usually germinate in 10 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Soak Caesalpinia gilliesii seeds 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.
Scarification before soaking is recommended. Scratch the seed-coat with sand-paper, nail file (or anything abrasive) to let water penetrate.
