| I would like to try to propagate this plant. I have several branches layered now but would like to try from seeds.
Anyone with experience who is willing to share ideas would be appreciated

|Hi Beth, I've tried it from seed, but was not successful. I did read that you need to soak the seed in something acidic to soften the outer coating. What I did do was make stem tip cuttings. They did root but it took about 2 months. I think your air layering should work too, but it may take much longer than some other plants.

|Ok!!! Some seeds . like pine trees need a forest fire before they will sprout. 😮 mazanita???
BUTT !!! If the hard outter shell is the problem. Then treat seeds like you do for New Zeland Spinach !
Score the seeds with a knife . or rough up with some course sandpaper. I dont know which method works better. I did both with the n.z.spinich and ownce you have it. WELL ! You never have to start seeds again !!! 😊😊😊
Hope you have success.
Ohhh!!!! And let us know !
Same thread ! Same channel ! 😊!
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
