Hardiness Zones 10-11, (1°C/35°F,5°C/40°F) in Winter. Grow in full sun to light shade. Water moderately. Bauhinias should be fertilized at least once a year. Use sandy well drained potting soil. Germination Bauhinia is easily propagated from seed. First, you can scarify the seeds, but this is not a must. Sow the seeds 1-2 cm deep in sandy well drained potting soil, placed in a warm position and kept moist, not soaking wet. Germination should occur within 3-4 weeks but it can take longer, don't give up. The process can be speeded up by soaking the seed overnight in hot water. Scarification Seed coats may be so hard that they are impermeable to water. They need to be scratched or broken using a knife or sandpaper, in order to germinate. Chip the seeds with a sharp knife or make a few swipes with a sharp edged file or use sandpaper to allow moisture being more readily absorbed.
