Hi I,m growing the from seeds is there any thing major that I have to do to get them to grow thanks

On plant Duranta repens



I would clean all the fruit off the seeds, if it hasn't been done by your source, and maybe rub them between sheets of sandpaper, too--they are adapted to go through the gullet of a bird before sprouting. They like warm temperatures, about 26-32 deg C, to sprout, and will need lots of sunlight from the hour they appear, to prevent "stretching". In my experience, they are hungry plants, so I would keep some liquid food handy for soon after the first true leaves appear. Hope this helps!
