very nice sunfish!

the first seed to sprout, germinated in zip lock bag:

thought it would be a goner, had to cut it down 1/2 about 2 weeks ago, but it's a fighter and now sprouting out new leaf..

my second seed to sprout, germinated regularly in potting mix:

this baby is doing so much better.

my third


all three side-by-side:



(seeds were received from austinl01 in december)

Trying your experiment, I think my bags look a little dry. I literally put in three drops of water, any thoughts:

I would either add perlite or a moist paper towel.

Velutina seeds must stay viable for a long time. I still have them coming up in a part of my garden where they haven't grown in 3 years. Just found 4 that are about 6 inches tall.

In the past I've cut off the fruit and thrown it away, but I guess I'll hang on to them and give the seed away here.

So I am wanting to get some seeds to try sprouting. How & who can I get some from? Am I understanding correctly from the photos that you all are using peat moss, heat & keeping moist until they sprout? I'm sure you can tell from my questions...I am really new at this...
