    How Quickly Can Nep Seeds Germinate?

    I frequently read how long it can take Nep seeds to germinate, but I'm interested in the other end of the spectrum. I'd really like to hear first hand accounts of people's quickest germinations. Thanks!

    I have had seeds germinate in as little as ten days to two weeks; conversely, others have taken months -- upwards of ten . . .

    Seen photos of seeds germinating in the seed pods, with the pods barely even split open. On the other end I've had seeds germinate almost two years later.

    My fastest was at about a week, but the majority of that seed set still took 2 weeks to really get started. And even months later, I am still having some germinate.

    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Had germinations once within 2 weeks, with really fresh seeds I regularly get germination within 3-4.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    My fastest was just under 3 weeks, but a friend had Flava come up within 1 week. thats the fastest ive ever heard of.
    when sowing my own seed soon after harvesting, I expect them up within a month. age typically makes them take much longer

    interestingly, I got some of those same Flava seeds from said friend and tried germinating them straight in the GH (early winter - not ideal) and they hadnt come up after 3 weeks. After moving them to a warm terrarium, they came up after a week.
    Conditions obviously play a huge role. I dont know what would have happened had I left them in the GH -

    I have had mirabilis (normal) and Viking seed germinate within 2 weeks of sowing, but I have had others take up to 5months
