Every seed I planted germinated and grew. Still not to flowering stage but they all continue to grow nicely.
I followed the instructions & it seems like all the seeds germinated.
I would say 90% of the seeds were germinated indoor within a week and the seedlings are strong. I can’t wait to see them grow and bloom after the weather is warm.
