HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS
Before sowing, soak Monk Fruit seeds for 3-4 days for good results. Under grow lights or in a good solar greenhouse, plant plants in a fast-draining mix. Seeds can be sown about five centimeters deep, and the planting area should stay warm and dry. Watering too often seems to discourage germination since the seeds have already swelled up after soaking. Germination may take 3 to 6 weeks. The plants should be transplanted to parts of the garden with rich hills, along with trellising.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
Monk Fruit prefers cool ambient temperature 20 to 22C. It grows better with a large difference in night and day temperatures. Humidity should be high. In partial shade, it does well with at least 7-8 hours of illumination. It also likes diffused light. It is not particularly important what the soil is like, but soils with hummus are preferred. There is no direct sunlight on this exotic liana, but it grows in a very warm climate, without a nebula.
