Growing Your Empress Trees From Seed In 4 Simple Steps
# 1 | Place the empress tree seeds in the refrigerator for 12-14 days to speed up the germination process.
# 2 | Sow empress tree seeds on top of soil in a pot containing moist potting soil. The seeds require light exposure to germinate and will remain dormant if they are buried. Place the pot in a sunny location outdoors and keep the soil moist at all times. The seeds will germinate within 10 to 30 days. The ideal temperature for germination is 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
# 3 | Keep the seedlings in bright sunlight as they develop. Repot them into individual pots as soon as they are large enough to handle 4-6 inches.
# 4 | Plant the empress tree seedlings on bare soil with no shade, preferably on a south-facing slope. Leave at least 4 feet between seedlings so that the growing plants do not shade each other. The seedlings will grow slowly during the first year, as all their energy goes into root development.
