    Default Miricle Fruit Tree

    Has anyone tried growing these mircle fruit trees? I wanted to order some fruit to try out and instead of paying the $40 for 15 of them, i went online and found 3 for 10$. I didnt read enough or something because they had a picture of the fruit, made a reference to a seed (me assuming the seed was the fruit). I now have 3 fruit seeds and not exactly sure if i want to start growing them since i have no way of producing 100% humidity like it asks for.

    Well I'm going to go ahead and start in case anyone would like to see the plants progress. From my understanding these seeds have a 25% germination ratio.

    I mixed a 50/50 mixture of Sphagnum Peat Moss and Perlite, filled an egg carton with the mix and put the seeds 1/2" down. I wrapped saran wrap around it to keep the moisture in and allow 100% humidity.

    You may want to water them with a little Fungicide when to plant them to prevent damping off syndrome.
