hello all. is there anyone that has tried the paper towel method of germinating their hosta seeds. I have some going right now. about 7 days and I will tell you, I see that a couple may be sprouting in a day or so. I am so excited about this. I would love to hear about others that have tried this method. sandy in nc

germinating hosta seed w/paper towel method
Be very careful not to damage the roots when you move them to soil. Otherwise, it works OK.

Try using coffee filters instead of paper towels -- they are more tightly woven and the emerging roots don't get caught in them as they do in paper towels.
