Plum Seeds

These are the wild plum seeds I opened 2 months ago and placed into the fridge in a moist paper towel, sealed in a plastic ziplock sandwich bag. That was July 8th. So germination is about 3 1/2 months. One looks rotted. The other 2 are slightly moldy but growing. This was one week ago.
Here they are today. I planted them in seed starting soil. No problem from the mold. Seems like wrong time of year to be sprouting. Will grow in window.

  4. Thanks again! There should be an update on these seedlings soon. They have done well during the winter.

    As for how it's done, I don't know! This is really the diary of what I'm doing on an ongoing basis. I keep the camera in my pocket so I don't have to remember the details. It helps me keep track.

  5. If i place italuan plum seeds in a mason jar of chicken manure will it sprout and how long will it take?

    1. I think the chicken manure is too rich, and they are more likely to rot. The seeds have all the nourishment they need to sprout. I would use something not so rich, such as peat moss, or paper towel, or seed starting medium.

  6. I wrote to you about the jar of chicken manure
    I forgot to mention i place the seeds in at the end of September and added some water and now it's over a heater
    Thank you
