These plants take a while to germinate but once they do they grow fast! I didn’t buy this plant I actually found the seed pods in the street, these seed pods contain a ton of seeds but I’ll warn you, they’re sticky!!! You’ll have to manually remove the red sticky layer to access the dark seed. I recommend you set them in water for a day or two to make it easier to peel that layer. They’ll take about 1-3 weeks to sprout (at least for me) and then it’s smooth sailing from there! The care is pretty easy, just keep an eye out for them bending.
