    Germinating them is really easy, getting them to survive their 1st year is the hard part...

    Yes,
    Ive red that and I was looking for more of a climate thing here. How much light, temp, humidity and the such. Also, I got some plastic circular trays that are about 10" across. Do u think one will hold a hundred seeds?

    Hmmm...... not for me! I had N.mirabilis seeds sent to me 3X and I tried various approaches, involving heat, light, time, and humidity. Nary a one germinated. Freshness of seed sent was posed as a reason why.

    Hi Jim,
    Where did the mirabilis seed come from?
    Cheers,
