I am having trouble starting my Blk. Eyed Sus. Vine this year. I WS and have 1 tiny seedling. 1. Do you think it's because we've had too much cold weather?
2. I would think if one seedling sprouted, the rest are not going to?.
3. Should this seed be nicked?
4. Should this seed be soaked?
It's a big seed so I am wondering if it should have some sort of "treatment" before sowing.
Any advise would be appreciated. Temps to germinate should be 72*. We have some really warm days mixed with really cold days.
I haven't had trouble WS this vine in the past. I don't remember doing anything special to it.

The ones I have under lights have sprouted. The WS ones are still doing nothing. It's 82* today. All my WS seeds should be popping today!

Actully, it's pretty dog gone hot here yesterday and today. Low 70's is perfect and we have had almost none of that. We've got quite a bit of humidity and that makes it quite sticky. I brought my B. I Susan vines outside today in the shade.
