I bought some seeds off ebay (mishobonsai.com store/seller). I believe they were chinese buxus.
I must've screwed up somewhere, but I followed the instructions thoroughly.
1) I placed it in very hot water until the seeds sank. The empty shells still floating I threw out.
2) Left it out on a dry plate for 30 days.
3) Wrapped it in a wet paper towel and placed it in the fridge for 90 days.
4) Tried to germinate...no go (been almost two months now!)
I have no idea what happened, not even one seed germinated (I actually thought one germinated because a green thing sprouted out of the soil...turns out it was a piece of grass ..lol)
I bought more seeds off ebay (still waiting for them to come in) and I'm going to plant them outside in some small pots. I'll let nature do it this time.
Should I put some plastic saran wrap over each pot to prevent snow falling into the pot?
