So cute, your seedling. I have ready access to mollissima seeds, but have had little success in getting them to sprout. I have tried ones that rotted, that are fresh from the fruit, old and dry and soaked, whatever. I did find one sprouting in a place that I had planted about 20 dry seeds, but over a year ago, in a shaded area. It could be that it really takes a long time to germinate in the field. This one in the photo is a volunteer that emerged below a bushy Salvia, apparently liking the shade. So this one is about 4 months old and I like that it is growing slowly and not leggily. Now it is out in full sun but watered every day at soil level.
I am so happy for you. Is she still growing in the aerogarden? I have 4 Maypop seeds that were soaked 48 hrs. in fresh orange juice, then placed in the damp paper towel into a zip lock bag. I have been checking every couple of days, they have been there 8 days and no sign of anything. I am am so hoping. I want a passion flower so bad and they are not sold in my area, and about 15.00 on the net plus shipping another 10.00 to 15.00 more than the pocket will take at this time. Good luck with your and please keep me posted, James
RetFla, thanks for the info. I have been following your other post about your cuttings. I must say you must be very proud, I would be to. Good luck with your future adventures. Will be looking to see more.
