  • Fernandoa magnifica
  • Kigelia africana

The seeds are usually winged with papery wings at both ends of the seed, or tight around the seed in one plane. The seed germinates in less than 10 days, provided the soil is damp and warm. Cover the seeds with soil or seedling mix to hold the seeds in place during watering.

Most members of this family are propagated successfully from soft tip and semi-hardwood cuttings at the beginning of the growing season. Tree species may benefit from hardwood cuttings.
