NOT ONE seed germinated. Very unhappy.
Rory Garza
Owner Response: Hi Rory, Thank you for contacting us about this issue. We are so sorry the cup and saucer vine didn't germinate for you. We test our seeds regularly using an independent laboratory to make sure they exceed industry standards for germination, along with our own, which is why we are able to guarantee our seeds. The last couple of tests resulted in 96% and 93% germination, but this species does need a few tricks to get going. We will be in touch soon to see how we can help.

Worth it

A little effort & patience with these seeds pays off. They're growing quickly & beautifully climbing up some lattice.
