Post #8684804

I recently acquired a very haggard looking KMOTGG in a 4" pot at a flea market. I only bought it for the seeds which I now have plenty of, since it was blooming when I got it.

Having grown these in the past from 6 packs (you used to be able to get these anywhere years ago, but not anymore) I'm now reading that the seed needs to be chilled before it will germinate. Anyone know how long they need to be chilled, or how long they need to dry before doing so ? Also, how long do they take to germinate ?

Ideally, I'd like to plant them now, for this fall's bloom, but that probably won't happen from what I've read.
