This is some of my fall seed collection. Nothing of any great treasures that were for sale on the seed auction but I just wanted to try my hand at germinating some. These have been scattered since October 19th, some sprouting Nov.9th and little leaves started but very slowly. I am not sure how long it takes to show signs of a second leaf but the seem to just sit there almost doing nothing. They were started with bottom heat with just the pilot lite on our gas free standing fireplace. I kept the lids on and mist them to keep them moist at all times , taking off the lids longer each day. I guess now it is time to get lights to make them grow?? I take it from what I can remember that when they get bigger they go into small pots of disposable drinking cups. They may not amount to much but if they grow it will be just like a proud mother and her first born. All the mistakes starting here.
Any input would be greatly appreciated and thanks for the inspiration
