5.) Sow seeds in any well drained humus rich soil (e.g. 50% peat, 30% grit
sand and 20% clay containing soil) rather flat (1cm/0.4" deep) at
medium-high temperatures (minimum of 20?C/68?F, better are 25?C/77?F).
Soil should be always moist but not wet, place pots rather sunny until
leaf appears (between 4 to 10 weeks), then place pots half-shaded.
Seedlings will produce new leaves one after each other until their
first dormancy starts (unpredictable). Then keep pots rather dry,
they might be stored in a cooler place during plants' dormancy
(15-20?C/58-68?F). Check pots every two weeks for sign of new growth.
As soon as new leaf emerges start to water again.
A. paeoniifolius might become large within short time, so be sure to
have the space for it ...
