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.
Catha edulis seeds will usually germinate in 7 days, if conditions are favourable.
Soak in warm water for a day before sowing, I have had the best results at around 40°C. Gibberellins are said to be helpful.
