yep,the seeds that John gave us is from a Big mouth.but when it germinates,it wont follow the mom's charactheristics so u can only call it typical.

they sometimes do follow their parent's charactheristics but the "blood" isnt as same as the mother no more,so just call it typical or just VFT

what do u mean cover?
i usualy sow the seeds in a small pot,then i sit the pot in 1/4 water tray fill with water.
i put a thin shade cloth above it to not to expose it to hot sun.but once it germinates,u can let it feel fullsun



Good Luck!
Harris

this is my first time on sarra seeds.
no need to cover the pot with plastic.just provide water tray below the pot to keep the media moist-wet .once it germinates,lessen the wetness of the media.
