18 days after I first noticed it had germinated it's still tiny. It's sitting in a south facing window and I'm keeping the soil damp. Any ideas as to what I need to do to get it growing... Or do these just grow very slowly (it took 2months to germinate). #advice-needed #advice #hosta #plantainlily

I'm going to say they're probably slow. I'll bet it's creating a pretty expansive root structure right now. 😉

@cyndi @moore.794 @columbiariver @ShelleySnyder @lovestogarden anyone grown a hosta from seed?

@jennlamaye thanks, that's reassuring. Hopefully once it stops growing down it might start growing up!

@jennlamaye no! I grow very little from seed! I'm an impatient old codger!😂😂💘😍

@Leoni I have sago palm that is just now sprouting up a frond. I sowed it back in September. 😳

@cyndi That's good to hear. It certainly seems to be taking a long time. I'll just keep watching it and hope I see some changes eventually 🙂

No, nor as a plant. Sorry.

Can you see that teeny tiny spot of green? That is the sign of unexpected success! Almost 2 months ago I planted these seeds and had pretty much decided they weren't going to germinate... And then this appeared! Couldn't believe my eyes 😁 #success #germinating #hosta #surprise

Well done you for perseverance! Not quick to germinate, but now just watch and wait 😁
