A bit over two weeks ago, I had started a “science” project to determine the germination period and conditions for pine cone seeds. It was actually the 18th of November. On the 27th, I already disposed of all 15 seeds from the mini greenhouse and four from the cubby. The ones in the fridge looked best.
Today, I checked again and most of the ones in the fridge had developed mildew. I saved four and put them into my last soil.
Yikes! Obviously, I dumped the ones form the cellar. The tissue paper was completely dried out. At least, now I know that my cellar is dry. I put the ones in the cubby back. Better not disturb them. It is rather cold there, depending on the temperature outdoors.
By the way, I used my last soil and last pot for the pine stone seeds. I had a pomegranate from Turkey some days ago and saved some seeds. I already have pomegranate saplings, but they are dwarf pomegranate (Punica granatum nana) and the one I ate is probably not the dwarf type. I don’t know which variety it is, I only know that the ones I saw in Turkey seemed to have a more intensive red color than this one.
