I had great germination with these seeds. The tiny blue flowers are very pretty; and they are on cascading stems. I have had no trouble growing these.

Disappointing

I've grown lobelia from seed before, but these were disappointing. Although they germinated well, the seedlings shriveled before reaching half an inch in height, even with careful watering, sunlight, and temperature monitoring. (The replanted seedlings did the same thing.) Not sure what went wrong. I was looking forwarding to seeing the beautiful colors in this seed blend.

Owner Response: Thank you for sharing your experience. Once germinated the success of the plant is environmental. It sounds like the plants may have been too wet or succumbed to a fungal disease called dampening off. Please feel free to contact us when you have questions, we are here to help!
