Planted some orange blackberry lily seeds two weeks ago. Does anyone know how long they will take to sprout? (planted 50 seeds in jiffy pots)

They take quite a while. I grew some from seed a few years ago and if I remember right, it took them up to four weeks to sprout. Keep them warm and don't let the soil dry out.

Thank you so much Lainey. I even took one seed out and scraped the side thinking that it needed that. Every morning I get up and look at them....now I know all is still well. Thanks again.

They can take a month or even longer to sprout. I put my seed all in one container and after they are up a couple of inches, take them out and wait til the next seeds are up. When all done, I dump the dirt in a pot outside and have had seeds come months later. Don't give up too soon!

Thanks Pams - it's three weeks now and not a sprout. I've got each seed in one of those one-step seed starters, they're small round discs that expand when they are soaked in water. I won't give up though - other seeds and cuttings have sprouted and been planted already, but these lilies are sure taking a long time. Guess it's a good way to learn patience!
