Planting Instructions:
To encourage sprouting, these seeds must be scarified before planting. The seed coat should be removed from the side of the seed with a metal file until the pale yellow center is barely visible. Seeds should be soaked in water until they sprout, changing the water every day. Sprouting usually takes 2-4 weeks. Be aware that the emerging stem is actually a leaf, not a taproot, and plant in small peat pots just covered in water. Water depth should increase as plants grow. This plant dislikes being disturbed at its roots, so transplant outdoors carefully. The plant grows well in muddy, shallow water or in water up to six feet deep. Despite being rooted in the mud, its leaves and flowers float on water. This plant can be grown in large containers immersed in water at least 2 feet deep to prevent spreading.
