Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '02 trade. Baggy 70F with light (5w; no G)
  2. Seed from HPS/MAG '06/'07 exchange. Baggy 70F with light (10%G, 4d)
  3. Same seed as above. Baggy 70F with light (6%G, 6-11d). Only one of the three germinated seeds developed top growth.

Reputedly self-seeds easily - I suspect seed needs to be fresh for good germination, much like several other umbellifers.
