I like eating pepitas, apparently even in the shower. About two years ago I dropped a pepita on my bathroon floor where it settled in my shower mat. Safely ensconced and getting enough water, sunlight, air and dirt, it started to germinate which I found very surprising. This year I tried planting my pepitas, and a few germinated of which most died. At the moment I have one left and it has developed more than ten flowers. I never knew seeds without hulls(kernels) could germinate. I cant wait to see the fruit. I’ll post a picture later and keep you informed as the story develops.
By the way, does anybody know how to grow lotus plants from seed?
