Het duurt wel even, maar nu, circa 2 jaar na het zaaien, heb ik een plant die de eerste gele bloemen geeft. Heel leuk. Staat in de wintermaanden uiteraard wel binnen. Kieming ging vlot.

Makkelijk kiemertje... dag of 3 op 25 graden en ze lieten zich al zien...waren zelfs wat meer zaadjes...het lijkt erop dat ze wat langzamer gaan dan de Monandra..
