First Strep Flowers from Seed - I'm Happy!!

aachenelf z5 MplsJune 11, 2004

This really surprised me. I did my first strep cross last December, planted the seed 2/10, they germinated 2/21. Today, I noticed my first buds popping out. I've grown strep from seed before, but never had them flower this quickly. Is this the norm?

That's very good. Streps do reproduce much faster than AVs. We 're so used to waiting forever for AVs that streps seem to grow very fast.

Hi Kevin,

Congratulations are in order. I think it is really fun to grow plants from seeds and watch them mature. Good work.
