Anyone try to grow this from seed? I'm going to give it a try. The seeds are large so, I think I will try the wet paper towel method on a few.

I'd never heard of this either and went to look it up. It's a beautiful plant--love both the foliage and flower.

If you rub the leave it smells like peanut butter! Although I have not seen one in bloom, the info i have read is they smell like honey.

According to the Thompson & Morgan Seed Germination Database it wants to be sown shallowly but covered in peat based soil mix .. soil temperatures in the mid to upper 70's. Can take 1 - 6 months to germinate.
