Got my seeds today super stoked!!! Most annoying part was tracking number only showed the Portugal shipping updates whereas after package left Portugal all updates stopped.

Hi Joe
Thanks for the good news.
I recently went to our local post office to ask information and complain about the lack of tracking information outside Portugal.
There they explained me that CTT blame USPS for this lack of information. Apparently during this pandemic period the USPS services and personal stopped updating the tracking informations online and CTT can't do nothing about it...
So this explains why the packages just show tracking information while they are in Portugal and most cases the last tracking information available online is "International expedition from Lisbon on date..."
Lisbon is our capital city and all international mail leaves Portugal from Lisbon international airport.
I just recomend patience to all because things seem to be moving slowly but steadily.
Thanks again and stay safe
Miguel

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the updated.  I know there will be a long wait for them when I placed the order, but waiting is a torture.  On the other hand, it is a good training to be patients.

Thanks,
Al

Mine took about a month to arrive, but were all germinated with a decent size root on 'em.

Still no seeds. I know it isn't your fault, but it is frustrating nonetheless.

Mine arrived today in excellent condition with almost all of them germinated already. Took a month I believe. Thank you, Miguel!

Received my seeds today.  Arrived exactly 2 week.  I guess I got me the fastest. 

Thanks for the extra.  Great seller

Now I could confuse.  The germinated one, which side go up and which side is to go down to the ground.

Hello Pinkturtle
Thankyou very much for the good news and for your kind words too.
Those are small roots growing so better to plant it pointing down.
Good luck and I remain at your full disposal in case you need anything else from me.
All the best!
Miguel

You can always lay a seed light that on its side and if there is light, the root will go away from it and the shoot will go towards it. Mine are about the same.

Also as an update, my seeds took about 1 month to arrive. It sounds like the shipping is MUCH faster now and I'm looking forward to my next order arriving.

Thanks K-Rimes.  I saw 2 stems branching out from the white stem.  I assumed that is the root.  So I planted the white stem down.  Hope I did it right.

I believe the brown tipped one is the root, and the light white one is the shoot. Perhaps Miguel can chime in with advice.

As they say, "Roots before shoots"

I think you are right, K-Rimes.  I will revert it when I am home.

Updated of the which side of sprout up or down, in case someone ran into same issue like me.  K-Rimes is corrected.  "Roots before shoots". After 4 days, I saw stem is shooting out.

LOL! Was just about to re-order, and seeds arrived today.  Extra too. All have roots and some sprouts.

Thank you Miguel!
