Germination is rapid (Taylor 1960). There is no difference between germination in the light and in the dark (Kyereh et al. 1993). Germination is equally successful in large gaps (Kyereh 1994). It has a cryptocotylar epigeal reserve seedling type (cf. Voorhoeve 1965). Seedlings are in some cases abundant at the start of the rainy season but soon die out in the shade. Growth is rapid in exposed areas (2-3 m in 5 years, Taylor 1960).
