It is now Day 12 since the germination of the Lotus seeds from the Pink Lips. Believe it or not, they germinate so quickly under the full sun that I now have all seven seeds in containers with mud and water. Here is the photo journal.
========================= 6th to 12th Day ============================
=======================2nd, 5th , & 6th Day ===========================
========================= Day 2 ====================================
SUCCESS!! It has germinated.
Day 2 photo journal of germination of Lotus seed - Pink Lips.
Decided to transfer all seeds into a clear cup so they can catch more sun light.
At 4:50 pm, I found a germinated seed!! I decided to take them outdoor and get the full sunlight to see if that will help them grow faster. Sure enough, Lotus seeds react to the sun quickly. In 1 hour, the germinated seeds' stem has pushed a bit more outward. In 2 hours, it has grown several millimeters.
