Fantastic.  You make sprouting spuria seeds sound totally easy. 


A few years ago a friend planted my spuria seeds for me (I was a chicken as I tend to kill pot plants - even TBs) in a number of pots.  There were about 20-30 seeds per pot and all seem to have sprouted.  He kept them in the pots for me for several months.  When I planted them that spring they were all about 8-10 inches tall.  I can't see any reason you can't do the same.  Probably putting them near a window with daylightin addition to indoor lights would help their growth.  Mine did very well in the pots (when he had them) and in the ground when I trensplanted them.    Oh - the pots contained regular potting mix.


Good luck.  Keep us posted.

Good evening everyone.

I need some advice. This past summer I received some mixed spuria seed
to try. It got forgotten about and left out in a gardening bucket in a
small baggie with a bit of peat moss. I just found it yesterday while
cleaning out the bucket, my costant garden companion since early
spring. There are many green shoots making me think that every single
seed has germinated. I have no idea what to do with it now. Obviously
at this time of year in Zone 2b CDA/3 USDA, I can't plant them outside.
I need some advice. Do I pot them and let them grow under lights inside
for the winter? It's the only thing I can think of but wanted some input.
