Purchase tangerine seeds from a garden center or nursery. Alternatively, save the seeds from a fresh tangerine. Wash fresh seeds thoroughly as the sweet juices may cause the seed to mold.
Fill a small pot with commercial potting mixture. Use a fresh mixture that contains materials such as compost, peat moss and perlite. Be sure the pot has drainage holes in the bottom, as poorly drained soil will rot the young seedlings.
Water the potting mixture and then set the pot aside to drain until the mixture is lightly moist but not soggy.
Plant two or three seeds in the pot. Cover the seeds with 1/2 inch of potting mixture.
