Topic: Tom's Rojo Catuai seeds (11 msgs / 166 lines)
1) From: Michael Vanecek
Of the 7 seeds I got, one peaberry got fungus, 3 have sprouted, 2 have 
just germinated and one is left to hopefully germinate. Very good 
germination ratio for such a small number of seeds! We'll see what kind 
of coffee they produce here in 4 years or so...
Be well,
Mike

I planted mine in 4 six  inch pots, two in each pot. One was broken,
but I planted it anyway. I have had one from each of the four pots
sprout. They are about 1 1/2 - 2 inches tall now.

That's great - here in the bay area we havent had much sun or warmth 
and mine havent come up yet ... but I know from experience you have 
to be REALLY patient with these. Just when you think they can't 
possibly have germinated, they come up.

I am strangely glad yours have not germinated Tom.  I was starting to
get worried that I killed mine before they had a chance in this big
world.  My hope is renewed.  Jared

Don't give up on them yet! You'll be surprised... if you do 
eventually have the absolute buring desire to find out if they failed 
or not, gently loosen the soil and try to fish them out ... chances 
are you will have some with a good heatly taproot that just havent 
found the surface yet. If you are careful and reseat them, they will 
still come up for you...

Bob,
I have to go to Denver on business in May, booked the flight today. 
Maybe we could get together for a cup!

I apparently suck at growing - none of mine have done anything :(

Congrat's Dave T.  on your new family of coffee.  Like Tim sounds, I
continue to be as bitter as a 3 minute ristretto about watering my
dirt every day.
Jared, the brown thumb (don't even go there).
