Moonflowers vs Morning Glories

I soaked both my morning glories and moonflower seeds overnight and planted them in "okay" soil, sunny location outdoors. Now my morning glories are all popping up, but I have not seen a single moonflower. Do they take longer to germinate?? I planted another round, this time in little pots indoors. After 5 days, I decided to check on one of the moonflowers and a little sprout has popped out of the pod, so I have my fingers crossed. I have read on this forum three MG to every moonflower, I guess I won't have a problem here, I am struggling to get ANY moonflowers. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. It sounds as if you've done everything you can do. Where are you located? I'm in southeast GA. I haven't planted morning glories yet. I'm wondering what color to get. I'd like white.

Yes, they do take longer to germinate than Morning Glories, I've found.

Thanks for the follow up. I'm in zone five, Coastal Maine, so it's a challenge to grow moonflowers here from everything I hear. My dad had the most beautiful display of morning glories and moonflowers that grew around our front porch every year...it could take your breath away. Of course that was in CT, but I have to give it a whirl. Keep crossing your fingers for me :o)
