Hi and welcome to NavyVet’s Fall grow.
Things have been a little rough, 2 seeds, a BBA and a GSCEA were dropped into soil as my preferred germination process. Those never amounted to anything, dug one up and it showed cracked open but dead tap, same with the other seed.
Dropped one of each in water to attempt the soaking method. Bean never sunk but it did seperate sprout from hull. I took sprout and put in in soil and placed on window sill. The GSCEA never sank or cracked open so I dropped a 2nd.
Those 2 were able to be planted and although they are “growing” I have my doubts they will survive so I dropped 2 more of each.
I can honestly say that the success rate on the BBA and GSCEA have been way below my expectation. 9 seeds started, 3 failed and 2 not so happy looking seedlings, this is not counting the failed BBA and GSCEA seeds from Spring grow that have already been replaced by ILGM.
