    OK, I put 2 of each (the tree and the shrub) on a plate with water for 3 days then planted one of each seed in a small 2x2 inch pot (peat/perlite) about 1/2 inch down into the soil, and watered them again with very warm water before covering the pots with plastic wrap to keep in the humidity and warmth. Just a few days ago I removed the plastic wrap to water them again, and I didn't put it back.
    I can't tell if the seeds plump or not...I put a few more (3 of each) on a plate with really warm water yesterday and 4 of the 6 sunk to the bottom immediately, only 2 floated. I dont' know what that means if anything? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]


    How many do you suggest I plant? More than 3 of each, a small handful, 1/2 dozen of each maybe? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    When the seeds plump up, they sink. I planted about 20 seeds and maybe 8-9 germinated. I think you'll increase your odds if you plant many seeds at a time.

    Ok, here is what I did:

    I read up on growing mimosa and followed instructions given. I soaked 4 of each seed in 120 degree water for 20 minutes. I planted two of each just below the surface of nutrient rich potting soil and watered them with warm water mixed with plant food. The other 4 I left in the water and put them aside in a covered dish with a little ventilation. I did this last part as an experiment. Seems to me when I was a kid and wanted to germinate a seed, Mom would always have me leave the seeds in water for a prolonged period of time, and they would end up sprouting. So, in the event the ones I planted do nothing, perhaps the seeds in water will begin to sprout.

    I know, planting that many at a time would be ideal, but I have no place to put or plant that many. I have nowhere to put that many pots, and I don't have a shallow container that I could use or find a place for. I'll have to settle for planting these few at a time until I can come up with a better idea. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    The site I was at suggested germination may take up to 21 days. So I've marked the calendar and will wait patiently to see what happens with the seeds both in soil and water.
