You will need seeds and a mixture of nutritious soil. You can start by choosing a small pot with drainage holes, but when the culture begins to grow, you should transplant it into a larger container.

Peel the seeds from the shell and leave them in warm water for 3-4 days. Next, pour the soil mixture into a pot and plant the seeds to a depth of 1-1.5 centimeters at a distance of about 2 centimeters. Water the soil and cover with plastic wrap. Place the pot in a warm and bright place, but avoid direct sunlight.
