So I've seen these plants in the garden centres from time to time and I've wanted one because they are so unique looking. The leaves are so thick and rough. Actually they look and feel fake. So on one of my bored searches on ebay I came across seeds for this wonderful and bizarre plant.
So lets get started with planting the seeds shall we :) ** Please note that these seeds look like peanuts but they are extremely toxic. So Please keep these out of reach of children and pets**
First - You'll need some well draining soil. I'm using a Cactus mix.
Next you'll need:
A Seed tray or small pots. I'm using a self watering seed starter (these seeds can take several months to germinate so self watering helps when you forget about these on your window sill :)
|Labels and a Marker will help you remember what you planted .|
You think it's silly but when it takes a few months for them to sprout you will
forget what they are :)
|Check out these seeds!! I Truly thought I was sold expensive peanuts..lol|
DON'T EAT THEM!!!!!
Now for Planting!
