    CN, make sure you give it lots of heat. They should sprout in 2-3 days if kept warm [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ohhh...maybe they aren't warm enough? I have the seeds in the cutest tiny little 2 inch pots to start, and they're in my terrarium which is only maintaining about 70 degrees F. I added some warm rain water to the terrarium and the seeds yesterday, but of course that only helps until the water cools. Is it too cool for them you think?

    70 is a bit cool and may or may not germinate. 80-85 would cause them to sprout in a few days. Since we don't use the inside of our oven much, i stuck the seed tray in there. And in 2 days they sprouted. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    How many seeds did you sow?

    They haven't done anything yet (there is one seed per pot). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    But I have put a few more in a dish with rain water (I warmed it up and covered the dish with plastic wrap, a few tiny holes poke in for air). It's now in the terrarium. There is two of each seed in the dish, 2 tree (10 ft. mimosa) and 2 shrub/plant (3 ft. mimosa). I just did that tonight. We do use both our oven and our microwave a lot, so that's not an option. Do you think this ought to work well enough? Or is there something else I could do?

    For me, warmth seems to be the biggest factor for success. If nothing happens in a few days, then you'll want to try a different method. My first batch, I kept at room temperature, nothing happened. 2nd batch I stuck in the oven, they sprouted real fast. Could you possibly put your dish on top of something warm like a tv or monitor? Just gotta make sure no moisture will drip from your dish [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    We have a room heater in out room that is kept on low now since we're having fall and winter temps. I wonder if it would be too warm to set it on there for a few days?
