I am sure all of you will out-run and out-shine both of us with plants that are much better and pretty than we have.

REMEMBER, to soak them for 2 to 4 hours before putting them into the soil.
It will germinate around 95%. Fastest 5 days to longer 7 -10 days.
Most will appear in around 5 days some earlier.

After covering them with cling wrap to trap the moisture in, put them in bright light area (not direct sunlight).
They will greet you in very fast time.

All the Best to all who took this challenge.
A seed grown adenium well take care of can bloom and flower in 6 months.
On top of that you get to have beautiful caudex. Only seed grown enable you to have such.

Let see who get to the finishing line first.
