Two of my pods have finally ripened...the seeds remind me of tadpoles Hilarious! Never tried to grow them from seed. My question is...should I plant the "tail" or break it off ??? Also is the fresher the better for germination or does it matter ???

The fresher the better and wing tip up!!! Don't break it off!! It pokes up out of the soil....

i have soaked seeds for 6-8 hrs then put in damp paper towel in zip lock bag until i see little roots start and then i plant saves time planting non viable seeds. if you do as i did and leave to long they will root threw paper and you can just plant the paper towel. I soak 50-100 at a time !! and if i planted all them before knowing if they sill germinate its a big waist of my time.


everyone has there own ways and what you fine works for you do it try different ways and see what you like best
