How do you plant desert rose seeds and should you soak them or just take the flyers off and plant?

There are two plants called the desert rose. By the reference to a 'flyer', you are probably meaning the Sturt's Desert Rose of Australia. If so, you do not need to pre-treat or remove the 'flyer'. Just sow seed in potting mix - you can buy a mix especially for native plants.

If your question relates to the succulent Adenium obesum, which is from the oleander family, then you also don't need to pre-treat the seed.
