Ringo 2000

I have several plug flats of geraniums (pelagorniums) started. My Tornado Ivy leaf, Pintos and Bullseyes are doing fine, all of these had fairly even emergence and 90+% germination. I planted some Ringo 2000 (first time trying these) and germination is very uneven and so far only maybe 50%. Is the uneveness of germination/emergence a trait of these? Anyone else grow Ringo 2000 before? Expereince with them?

RE: Ringo 2000

I grew ringo a couple of years ago and they did germinate pretty uneven. Pick out the ones that came up and put the others on a heat mat or heat vent (covered). It helps if you store your seed in a refrigerator for about a month before you plant them too. Don't know why.
I wasn't wild about Ringo growth either.
