Hello all,

I've been given around 150 or so seeds of the Nanmu tree and have no clue where to start. Apparently they're quite rare and threatened due to deforestation, so I don't want to mess up and waste them all. There is not much information on the propagation of them that I've been able to find online.

They're a tropical species native to Southern China, Hainan Island and Vietnam: Wikipedia
So, I'm thinking maybe looking at propagation techniques for other tropical deciduous trees (teak maybe?..) and going from there.

Since there are so many seeds I've got some room for experimentation, so I'm looking for ideas to try. I'm a newbie at starting trees from seed anyhow so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
