|October 13, 2015: Seeds sown (Seeds obtained from eBay. Looked like ordinary black peppercorns. I wonder if they are viable. Planted in seed starters, kept in "window box" container under grow/seed starting lights with plastic wrap over top to maintain high humidity and on heating pad to keep things warm. Kept in "tropical room" with heat currently at 78f)
October 31, 2015: Obtained plant (Obtained two plants from Eldon Tropicals in Ocala FL. Awesome deal for awesome plants.)
November 2, 2015: Transplanted (Put one of my two plants from Eldon Tropicals into a 12" (5 gallon) planter pot in a hanging planter. Looks great!!!)
