Pea seeds to pea seedlings after 11 days

Started March 20th, the pea seeds are planted in one eggshell. Far back on the left side.
March 29th
April 1st.
I poked a hole in the bottom of the egg shell with a tack. After 11 days, the root began to poke through the hole.
The seedling got super tall and wobbly. Time to transfer to a pot.
Peeled the eggshell off and here is the ball of roots with the germinated pea seeds.
Tada! Repotted and propped up with help from a stick.

    1. Thank you Miriam! It was a lot of fun to see them grow and the other seeds are just starting to germinate. I never get basil, so I’m really hoping that this is the spring where I can grow it to some fruition.


    1. It’s growing taller and today I took wooden chopsticks to support its height. I’m wondering if I should’ve planted it a bigger and taller pot. Maybe if it gets too leggy. I’ll transfer. Hopefully it won’t get killed in the process. I usually start strong with gardening and end up with scraps in a few months. eek!

      1. I’m no whiz with houseplants, believe me … I am lucky if I can keep a poinsettia until Christmas without it losing the colorful leaves and looking pitiful.


      2. I usually kill my houseplants too, but my success started with a Pothos plant. I got it 2 Christmases ago and I have propagated many of its stems. And when the fish tank needs some sprucing up, I get some of the stems and place them in the tank.
        If you are interested in a houseplant, like a hardy one, try a Pothos. They are forgiving plants.
