@Adam, how are the Russel's sweet seedlings coming along?

@Mike T, can I be put on a waiting list for seeds (if you are once again able to rely on the good fortune of others you know?

Looks like they are thriving Oscar, how old? How long to germinate?

As i recall they took 1-2 months to geminate. They've been growing slow, but i kept them in a lot of shade.

They are slow at first and then speed up. Seedlings flower at between 4 and 7 years typically.
