These are tricky because they come from a very hot climate. Plant several to a pot like citrus pips and put the pot right on a radiator or hot tank, covered with a polythene bag to keep draughts out and moisture in. When shoots appear, use small sticks to prop up the bag so that it does not touch them. When the plants are 3 inches high, you can remove the bag but they must be kept warm and regularly given water containing liquid fertilizer.
