Hey, Flinter!

The Blue Daisy seed I got from you have sprouted and are doing well!

As Alana mentioned, the spots don't really show up until you have true leaves that are a little larger.

You also mentioned that one of the seeds produced two seedlings. Looks to me like at least a couple have done so. I'm glad you mentioned it, as in the photo I posted above, I said there were six seedlings, but actually it was from three seed.

I had pre-soaked and sowed four seed, three of which were heavy and sank immediately, the forth was a floater that was still floating the next day. As expected, only three seed sprouted, but all three were bi-embryonic. Thumbs up

So, only three seed and the pot is already looking over-full! I wasn't expecting the side branches, and had been considering, when I first installed them into the large patio pot, what I would put around them for filler. Guess I won't need to worry about that any more! Hilarious!

While I'm on the subject, I received some Cerinthe major 'Yellow Gem' in response to my wish-list. There was a generous portion of seed, but unfortunately, when pre-soaked, all were floaters, and as expected, none sprouted. Crying

So if anyone is growing one of the yellow forms of C. major like 'Yellow Gem', please try to save seed this year, as I (for one) will be asking for them! Smiling Smiling Smiling
