Of 6 seeds received, ALL have sprouted. Keeping fingers crossed that I can keep them alive. Wish me luck!

If anyone wants some for themselves, I won't be passing any of these on until I'm relatively sure the ones I keep will thrive. But I bought the 'seedlings' (seeds just showing a first root) from Sela Seeds (

The first batch I tried, I bought just the seeds (not yet rooting) and those didn't survive the shipping. But these rooted seeds are doing great. They came packed in a small bag of moist peat/coir and survived the delicate transfer into pots. I'm thinking the fact that they were actively growing 'underground' until they arrived are what helped them to survive the shipping. So...just FYI for anyone else trying to get tricky plants shipped long distances.
