    Most came up and growing great

    These have grown beautifully. I mixed them w another brand Plantago major, these were in refrigerator 14 days and the others 10 after getting mixed w originals. I planted 4 seeds per starter pot. Every pot had atleast 1 come up, most had 3 or 4. I transplanted into 6” pots and put in partly sunny window w grow lights. I used 2 mixes for aloe Vera. Herb food once growing well. Some now have flower buds.
