    Take a flower pot and fill it with potting mix. Make sure that the mix you use does not contain any soil. Generally, perlite, moss, compost and other elements are used to make such a mix. Spray water onto the mix and then stir it in order to uniformly distribute the water. Fill more flower pots in a similar manner.

    Make a hole in the mix in each of the flower pots with your finger. Place one wisteria seed in each of the pots. Cover the seeds in such a way that there is only a thin layer of potting mix covering the seed.

    Humid environment is best for making the wisteria seeds to sprout. This can be achieved by covering each of the flower pots with a large enough piece of plastic wrap. Place the pots where they can receive abundant natural light but are shaded from direct sunlight. This is important because direct sunlight would heat up the pot too much and the wisteria seed will die before sprouting.
