Do you guarantee germination on your seeds?
-No. We do not guarantee germination on all seeds because the seeds are only part of the equation that makes them grow. Regardless of your experience level, sometimes the conditions are not right even if they seem so. Sometimes the seeds simply take a long time. There are some seeds that take up to 6 months to germinate, and they require conditions to be maintained throughout. Variable germination is especially true when growing outdoors. Many of the seeds we grow are exotic and are not domesticated. Many of them are being grown in an environment where they are not native. As such, they maintain wild characteristics that make them germinate slow or irregularly. Sometimes even a seed that’s easy to sprout will not work well in some cases. The best we can do is maintain fresh stock, and we get new stock of most seeds one to several times per year. We encounter a lot of instances where batches of the same seed perform differently even in the same room. Seeds can drown, die from mold or cook in the sun just like the roots of a plant can rot and suddenly cause a healthy plant to die. Sometimes half a pot of seeds grows well, and the other half does not grow simply because of minor changes in moisture or sunlight. If we think there may be an issue with a certain batch, then we may test them and offer a replacement. But any types of replacements on seeds is 100% to be made at the sole discretion of the seller.

How fresh is your seeds?
-We make an effort to only stock what we will use within a few months. Seeds are generally harvested at a particular time per year, so they will be from the last harvest. Additionally, we make efforts to store our products so they have limited contact with air and light.
I followed the growing instructions but I’m still having trouble. What should I do?
– Many of the seeds we carry are rare and still have their wild characteristics. Just like a wild animal, seeds that have not been domesticated tend to have wild traits. This often means that they will have slow or irregular germination. These traits are often bred out of domesticated seeds. The advantage of irregular germination in nature is that it prevents an entire generation from being killed off if unfavorable conditions should arrive. As a result of this, you may find new seedlings of certain species popping up a month a part for several months. Some growers will give up and reuse soil only to find plants of the previously planted species emerge.Germination in many seeds is also triggered by very specific factors such as a change in temperature or saturation in water. It may also be necessary to wear down thick seed coats before soaking. This is called scarification. Some seeds can take months or even years to break out of dormancy even if special techniques are applied. It may in fact take several rounds of environmental change or a greater intensity of change than you are applying. Germination time estimates will also be longer if the initial conditions are not provided. It should be noted that soil temperature is not the same as air temperature. Heat mats may not be enough to raise the soil temperature for some species. Hot lamps are usually a better choice. Gibberellic acid (GA-3) is also very helpful in breaking dormancy in stubborn seeds.Another problem to be aware of is that seeds can rot if the soil is too wet while newly sprouted seedlings can dry out and die under the soil if the soil gets too dry during the early stages. Seeds may also die from uneven watering, too much heat or too much cold. Sometimes it is helpful to dig up seeds and check on them if they seem to be stalling. We make efforts only to carry very perishable seeds right after harvest and only stock quantities of seeds that we will sell within a short time. Due to the variability in grower technique and the naturally fickle nature of many of our seeds, we do not offer replacements for seeds that do not grow.
