i have tons of seeds of this plant, i planted a lot of them and none grew :( i followed all the procedures and even had bottom heat for them but i guess they just dont want to grow for me, but i am glad to see they grow well here haha

You may want to put the seeds in boiling water for a
2 - 5 minutes...this may get them to grow. This is
how I start my Delonix regia - Royal Poinciana seeds.

There's many Peltophorum pterocarpum trees in Balboa Park.
