Sorellina... I agree with Chelle. You need to get more heat and allow more time for alot of the flower seeds. Just about all the seed you mentioned needs alot of heat and anywhere from 20 to 30 days to germinate and Astibile can take even longer. Your still learning to grow them. You'll get it one day. At least you know how to do veggies good. Thumbs up

Chelle, with Culantro, the one thing I have learned is to like broadcast in a tray a ton of seed. Culantro produces oodles and oodles of seed but very little of it is viable, where it got pollinated. Culantro is one of the last seeds that I usually start. It has to have 78-80F consistent bottom heat 24/7 for almost a month before it will germinate. Rubbing the seeds around together and scratching them up a bit helps too to remove the outside seed coat. I have this little metal baby like colander. Think it orginally for shaking powder sugar, but I will put the Culantro seeds in it and take a spoon and move the seeds round and round the inside of that baby metal grater type thing to scratch them up.
