In combination with plenty of water, the balsamina blooms both on the branches and throughout its central trunk.
Plant balsam seeds in nutrient-rich soil outdoors. Press the seeds one by one into the moist soil and sprinkle some soil lightly over the pot but don’t cover them completely to let the light through. Keep the soil moist and the pot in a spot with at least 20 degrees Celsius. Make sure the pot has enough holes for the soil to drain.
