Erythrina crista-galli is also known as coral tree. Erythrinas are native to tropical areas around the world. In zone 8 and occasionally in zone 9a, it freezes to the ground and grows back in the spring. Red blossoms appear in several waves between spring and fall. Growth Habits: Shrub or small tree to 20 feet tall (6 m)Origin: Brazil Sun Exposure: Full sun Watering Needs: Regular to occasional water, well drained soil Propagation: Easily from seeds and semi hardwood cuttings USDA zone: 8b-10 

Soak them in water and put in a plastic pot.
Alternatively, normal seed substrate could be used as well.

Sow the seeds on the peat pellets and cover the seeds with a thin layer of peat (about 2 mm).

Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.

Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 75-83 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-75 F. 

price is for 5 seeds
