I find it very strange - people like to ask me questions, such as why their seeds/plants bought from elsewhere didn't grow or bloom (see pic#4), how long it will this to bloom or that to sprout. If I tell you I have the answers for you, then I will be lying ! As mentioned before, everybody's growing conditions are different, between you and your immediate neighbors, maybe even among the different positions of your pots will yield different results, don't you think ? In addition, what I used and what you used may be different (one buyer even told me a certain brand of MOG cmi), so how could I tell you when your seeds will germinate or when your plants will start to bloom ? To me, as long as you diligently do what you need to do as a gardener and used a clean and suitable MOG, you will probably a step closer to be successful than not ! Of course, you need to understand the basic of seeds germination, how plants grow, what does plant need etc - if you cannot remember, go and flip some primary school science books. They probably have some answers for you there. However, do note that every plants/seeds will have their own characteristics, so you will need to understand too ! This is a perfect example - Buyer N bought the sunflower seeds from me before but decided to use her own MOG, in the end something else grow instead of sunflower. Since it was a birthday present for her friend, she didn't want to disappoint her friend, so she came around to buy 3 sunflower "teen" plants with my MOG in a pot. I have not heard from her till 2 days back and wanting to place new order. It proves the point that what you used is important ! The pics was credited to Buyer N and her friend, who sent her the pics a month ago ! The thing I probably failed to understand is that - as parent, you will buy the best of the best (in terms of safety, nutrition values etc, for your babies, why would we have a different mentality for our seeds or plants ? Maybe we should all ponder over this ... Best, think before you act, ponder before you act, understand before you act ...your decisions do and will likely make a difference ! Whatever it is, happy gardening ! Thanks for reading !
