Fill a 1-gallon pot with a mixture of equal parts sterile potting soil, sand and well-composted manure. Set the pot in a shallow container of warm water until the soil’s surface feels moist to the touch. Remove the pot from the water and allow it to drain for about an hour.

Plant a seed about 2 to 3 inches deep in the center of the pot.Set the pot in a warm, brightly lit, shaded spot outside. Your spicy jatropha will germinate in about six to 18 days. This plant will bloom during its first year.

Water often enough to keep the soil evenly moist at the depth you planted the seed. Don’t allow the plant to dry out during its first year. The plant will be drought-tolerant once it’s established.

Move the spicy jatropha seedling into one more hour of full or partial sun each day, for about two weeks when it’s about 10 to 12 inches tall.

Till a well-draining spot in full or partial sun to a depth of about 12 inches. Plant the seedling at the same depth it occupied in the growing container.

Give the spicy jatropha enough water to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy or wet for its first year. Don’t let it dry out completely.

Place 1 pound of well-composted manure around the plant three times throughout the growing season. Do this in May, July and September.
