Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '10 trade, arrived already germinated in paper filter, moved to pots immediately

I received the following advice from my trading partner on successfully germinating the seed: Place the seeds in a sealed plastic tub with some moistened soilless mix, and set the container in a warm location. Check and shake weekly. Germination will start in 2-4 months, and may proceed for several months after the first seeds sprout.
