So much faster than expected!

The time it says that these will take to germinate is between 60-90 days for the average time and it has been less than a month for me and one has sprouted and take off already! I hadn't notice it had sprouted til today when I glanced and it was touching the lid, I immediately moved it to another container with the lid off so that I could leave the lid on to try and let the other seeds germinate. It looks like the rest are about to sprout too which is thrilling! Have already bought more seeds and will be again in the future. Hoping the passiflora seeds come back in stock!

The germination of their seeds are 90 + % and that is a great deal to me due to helping my own plant shop be successful.
