I was hoping they would be amazing after the effort in germinating them. Definitely a bit fiddly. Like violas, they only germinate in darkness. I had them in pots under black plastic. However, the instant they germinate, they need to be under bright lights, or they stretch out to pale weak stems that don't seem to root well. This means you have to be vigilant to watch for sprouting every day and move the germinated seeds immediately to the lights. Looking at the color varieties, I would like to try some more the bicolors.
