Anyone growing Castor Bean plants this year? I found a pack of "Impala" seeds and started them indoors. The first batch rotted. The second batch I started in a damp paper towel in a sealed baggie. When they sprouted, I transplanted the two seeds into pots. They have now sprouted and are approx. 5 in. high. I have grown Castor Beans before (variety unknown) and never had such a hard time getting them to germinate. Granted, the ones planted directly outdoors usually germinate trouble-free but this year I was busy getting their growing area built and ready.
Has anyone here tried the "Impala" variety? These were the only Castor Beans I have found in all the usual stores that sell seeds.
