Some dry stored mexi-ping seeds, dated from April of 2016 were sown here, about a week ago.
That seed, collected, labeled, dated, and kept separate from other butterwort seed collected during that month, was stored at about 67-68°F, in our basement, through that duration.
Was hopeful that some of it would still be viable after this much time has passed and then after days five and six out from sowing, have already noticed some seeds beginning to sprout.
Typically, mexi-ping seed can take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks to germinate, and even longer still for older seeds.
Wouldn't recommend waiting this long before sowing these types of seeds, but it seems to me that mexi-ping seed stores very well inside its seed capsule, at room temperature, or just below that setting.
