I have a few (15/20) nyctanthes arbor-tristis (parijaat/indian night jasmine/sad jasmine) seeds with me.
I need help in germinating these seeds.
I believe these seeds are viable. I am trying to germinate these seeds indoors but I did not have any success so far.
I tried to germinate them in peat moss pellets but no sign of seedlings even after one week. I did not go through any pretreatment. I took the seeds out of their pods and put them in wet/damp peat moss pellets. I put 3 seeds flat and 3 seeds edgewise. No luck so far. The indoor temperature was 60 to 70 degrees F.
I have attached a picture of these seeds with and without their pods. I cannot afford to experiment much with these seeds as I have a very limited number with me.
Can someone advise me how to properly germinate these seeds?
