    How long does it take for seeds to start to grow? I planted mine a week ago, and still nothing happening! I am doing the method with wrapping a plastic bag around it (loosely, clear plastic.)
    thanks in advance,
    Ash

    Hi Ash,
    My D. capensis seeds took about two weeks before I started to see little green shoots popping up. They seem to grow very slowly after that, but they are growing. It may take a few weeks longer, depending on the species, age of the seeds, and other conditions.

    I have some d.capensis seedlings that have been growing for 4 weeks, they're now about the size of my thumbnail. I'm going to assume that your instructions of 6-8 weeks means to get a decent-sized seedling.

    BTW, one they're established, they grow like crazy! They'll make up for their small growth in due time! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    It takes 4 or more weeks for the seeds to sprout. Seedlings are very slow at first , but if you give them the correct conditions they'll pick up speed.
