As the title suggests, i would like to know how i can germinate the seeds! I have read from sources remove the pulp and soak the seeds overnight before planting, or to simply plant it in soil, 1cm deep.
What are your views and suggestions?

I am from Singapore, a rather hot and humid country.
Many thanks, cheers!

Welcome!

Asparagus ferns are not particular about removing seed from the berry or soaking. But, they will not germinate in the light. Bury the seed below the soil level and put the pot in a shady place. It takes about a month for them to germinate. Keep the soil damp.
