After months of careful tending and waiting (and waiting, and moving large containers indoors when it got too cold), I finally have the first signs of success with my pawpaw trees.
I've got 18 of them in large containers that I've checked in on every month or so just to make sure they weren't rotting down there, every month or so they were still just seeds sitting in dirt. This time, my test sample had rooted.
Mwuahahaha! Please allow me to count my seeds before they've sprouted. One, one pawpaw tree, ah ah ah... two, two pawpaw trees, ah ah ah...
