► Seed germination record (test 150529): 10 seeds  soaked in clear water for less than 5 h, then laid on moistened tissue paper in transparent breeding box, from 29 May 2015, 34-36 °C daytime highs, diffuse light, 24-25 °C night lows, atmospheric humidity >70%, the first seed began to germinate visibly on the 3rd day after sowing, and 6 seeds germinated by the 9th day. A germination rate of about 60% can be expected. The seeds of this species are susceptible to fungus, therefore one should not sow these seeds all together in a single box, and one should sow them at different dates, locations, and on different media. Seeds of the new harvest   were tested in January and March 2016 respectively (test 160119 and test 160307), and results are similar.
