Hello Gardening friends,

I would like to share some surprises which I came across.
Recently, a friend of mine gave me some chia's seeds to try and eat it and I understand that this seeds has nutritional properties for our body.
I try soaking them in water so I could drink the water and eat the chia's seeds together the next day. To my surprise a few of the seeds started to have roots...and the seeds also looks like frog eggs... having jelly like around the seeds with a dark centre spot.
Out of curiosity I started some seeds to germinate them and it is really growing...
These seeds is four days old after sowing.

Growing this herb plant is very very new to me. I am asking those who have grown this plant in our Singapore weather to share with all of us.

Cheers,
BMB Albert
