Round 2. Probably should’ve used a seed start mix but this will have to do. Really just testing the viability of the seeds anyways. Seller stated I should receive 50 seeds and that was a lie, there is 40 here plus the 3 I already sowed, that’s not 50 guys😝 In case something does germinate I want to have more seeds to start closer to the season, so only planting half (20). Wish me luck..

@Grass Snake i woudn't throw everything away yet, but i would certainly sow a lot more than you did.

I purchased some violet sparkle (bell type) seeds of ebay last year (crappy idea i know but anyway). My first round of germination never took off.

I ended up sowing everything (20-30 seeds approx) in january. I had 3-4 total that germinated over a month later. All where severely helmetted and i managed to save only one seedling, wich was severely stunted and took months to grow a few leaves. It finally had some ok growth this summer.

11 months after sowing, i now have 2 pods turning red on it. I hope the fresh seeds i plan on harvesting will have better germination rates and give healthy plants. This is what it looks like

Morale is, you can definitely salvage a variety you want out of a crappy seed stock, but doing so may require a lot of patience and efforts.

Update: Still nothing so I threw in the rest of the seeds. Maybe 1 will sprout but It doesn't look promising at this time.
