heres my story (its long, i wont feel bad if you dont read it haha) i had planted a seed in a nice big pot. with good filtration and everything i placed it about a mile from my house in some woods with perfect light and perfect everything. i checked up on it about twice a week and it was growing GREAT and strong came back one day..was gone..most likely eaten, everything was gone except the stem..which died. i took 5 more seeds, germinated them and planted them someplace else..none popped up i took a pot and put it behind my desk with some dirt and a sprout..the sprout got to about 4 or 5 inches tall....the lamp fell off, ontop of the plant..and killed it within an hour (i looked at it before..fine..came back in an hour..dead) SO now i took 20 seeds, did the ol' cup of water sink and float trick thingy, 17 sank. Planted all of them in a new spot with new soil outside in the ground. made sure to mix up the dirt, and mix in some soil. And than lightly covered it all with potting soil. My friend did the same thing with four seeds..all four popped up, two are still growing strong now (very strong) my last go at this, hopefully success..although there doesnt seem to be much light that can get through, but theres lots of other plants there (i dug them up) and most likely there will be during the day and if you actually read my entire story...thanks!
