Hi Jolien,

Yes you need a seeds called Sapindus Mukorossi which is the seeds from the SoapNuts you use for washing. You ccan find all the information on how to grow a tree here:||learn-how-to-grow-your-own-soap/Soapnuts/Grow-a-SoapNuts-Tree-SAPINDUS-mukorossi.html

We have 12 of those trees growing. One is planted in our garden and looking really well. We still have to wait 4 more years until they have fruits on them but fingers crossed and all goes well.

Best regards. The SoapNut Shop

Hi everyone,

I'd really like to try and grow a soapnut tree. Do you just use the same soapnuts that you get for your washing?

Have any of you successfully grown one? Any tips one how you got it germinate?
