What are the pros? Cool plant to have
What are the cons? germination can be difficult
I germinated 3 of these and all are doing well. As crazy as it sounds, it is imperative that you pour boiling hot water over these and let them cool in the water. Once you've done this, you are good to go. I've had 3 of 4 germinate this way. Germination times vary. I had one germinate within a couple days, one after a couple weeks, and one after a month. Once they germinate they grow pretty fast. My little seedling has sprung up to 2ft tall and 1.5ft wide.
I tried to just do hot water with a second batch and had zero germination as a back up.
