Young plants need protection from winds, especially under hot, dry conditions but once established have good tolerance to drought.

It  is generally  propagated  through seeds,  but  occasionally  through  soft wood  cuttings and air layering



Harvesting:

Most germinate within two to three weeks and the young seedlings cared for in a nursery for around a year before being planted out. Care should be taken when transplanting to not damage the delicate roots.
