Trying to sprout Mango seed
I planted a Mango seed on July 31, 2010. I have waited for it to sprout. I finally carefully dug it up to see if it sprouted at all, as I have read they sprout so quickly and mine was not. I did find it had a tap root, but still no sign of leaves even 4 days after I saw the tap root. Did I damage it, or does it take longer to sprout in dirt.
I have two other mango seeds that I would like to sprout if I can. I noticed one of them had some type of root already coming out of the seed. I placed it in a shallow dish of water, hoping that they would sprout and grow.
I have read they are so easy to sprout and grow, but I haven't had any luck yet. Am I just being impatient, or does it take as long as an avocado pit does to sprout?
