Hi everyone,

It only took three days for a second moonflower seed to sprout! I'm using the paper towel in a plastic baggie method. I'm having great success with this method. I planted the sprouted one already outside. There's no leaves, just the root.

RE: Success!

Nice! These are really similar to morning glories, right? They look a lot alike, aside from the color. I just had a few morning glories sprout, and was amazed how fast they grew. In just three days, they were the same height as the tomato plants that had been growing for two weeks. I can't wait to see the flowers!


RE: Success!

Hi Kim,

Yep! They are very similar to morning glories except for the flower size and they are fragrant! They smell wonderful! What color are your morning glories? I planted mine outside the same day I started the moonflowers inside. The MGs I'm growing are Burpee's Best Mix (purples. pinks and white) and Heavenly Blue (also Burpee).
