How hard can it really be to start plants from seeds? Apparently, some seeds are simple, trouble-free growers while others are veritible hostage-takers needing constatnt vigilance. Like little chlorophyl babies, they need time, attention and monitoring throughout the day.
It can be a love-hate relationship between me and lisianthus. I LOVE it as a cut flower. It seems to last forever in a vase, well beyond when other flowers fade. But it' a bear to start from seed.
