i gave my friend a seed i found in my cronic so i gave him all this info on growing. well he ran into some problems with geminating. he used a sponge and he said he did everything to make sure it was perfect....not to wet and not to dry. but he said after afew days it looked like the seed was dying. he said he had it in the sponge for a week. he said it didnt do anything so he just planted it in the soil. will it still grow?
