Sow at any time of the year on the surface of a good seed compost but do not cover with compost. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light. Germination takes 10-20 days at 21-24C (70-75F).

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 8cm (3in) pots and finally 15cm (6in) pots.

In the home, grow in a well lit spot, in the greenhouse provide a little shade. Remove the flower spikes as they weaken the plant.
