    Three Udo seeds germinated so far, they were planted back in November. I anticipated more will follow. Two look really healthy, while one is very wrinkledy and deformed. Any ideas what might’ve happened to this fella?

      You are doing this correctly and it is quite possible that the wrinkly one is wrinkly due to a damaged or immature embryo. Like you said, ongoing germination is typical when the induction period is so elongated. good work, rare plant, matchless food, a real beauty when it gets big. r
