How to germinate Albrizia julibrisin seeds:
Super easy. Soak seed 5 hours in warm water (32C) . I use a heat retaining stainless steel coffee mug (with sealing lid) I take on road and/or seed collecting trips so the water stays warm. Collect seed in a fine colander/screen/sieve. Place seed in resealable baggie of moist warm medium. Place baggie somewhere warm (28-32C). Should start seeing roots emerge in 2-4 days. Prick out and transplant when roots are 2cm long into communal growing pot. Give strong indirect light. Do not let seedlings dry out. Fast grower.
