Brachychiton populneus seeds require scarification of their hard seed coat before sowing. Use a file, sandpaper, or nail clipper to remove the outer yellow seed coat. After scarification, lightly press seeds into the soil being sure to cover them but not plant too deep. Sown seeds require consistent moisture but the soil should not be soaking wet. Soil should be moist and well-draining, and remain between 75°F and 85°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 2 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
