Gotta say I empathize with the guys having germination issuea. I love Mephistos whole appeal, my orders have been shipped quickly and arrived safely, freebies are awesome, prices are more than fair, the image and company are excellent, but I've it had great luck with the seeds. About a month ago I got 3 of 4 seeds to germinate and grow. Last week I had 6 seeds, all of which germinated, but none have broken soil. I'm hoping that they will do so today or tomorrow, but wish I had better luck with them like I do with other breeders. Not a dig on the company there, just my experience and wishing I could get the seeds to cooperate more with me.
