My first two very tiny sprouts appeared today. I was concerned that the 64 degree room they are in might have been too cold for sprouting. Now I have more hope.

That's great news, lemonbalm!

I was mistaken about my double purples sprouting, turned out they weren't. But I'm not giving up hope yet. So I have 3 of the frillytunia and 3 burgundy frost still. They look like most have a couple sets of leaves now, but are still super small (I put a dime in the picture to compare the size to):

Mine are the same. I am beginning to wonder if the other types of petunias I got were not viable. Last year the double pirouette came right up.

Shoot, I am sorry guys.

No worries fearadyn, starting seeds can be hit or miss, at least for me. Sometimes you just get seeds with low germination rates, or maybe older seeds (presented as newer seeds) that have little or no viability. And I'm sure that many times I have perfect seeds and just mess them up some way all on my own, haha! We appreciate all the effort you took to get us going, some things are just beyond anyone's control.

No new sprouts here, just the 6 from before. Four are growing pretty well, two are still little wimpy things, but hanging in there. I think I will bring them out for a few hours tomorrow to start hardening them off since we are having such warm weather here in Florida. I usually take about a week, bringing them out into the sun a little longer each day before leaving them outside permenantly. Here is a pic of a couple of the bigger frillytunia seedlings - I left the dime in the pot from my last pictures so you can get an idea of how they've grown. Should I start giving them any fertilizer fearadyn? I'll probably transplant them into some small pots once they're hardened off. I'm sure just getting them out into the sunshine will make them happy babies.

I sowed blue & white petunias, and they germinated in 3 days. They are tiny seedlings now. I also have black petunia I am going to sow.
