Disclaimer: I'm quite new to gardening art.
So a few months ago, I had ordered this Moria Combo of 40 Seeds from Amazon just to try my hand at growing a few plants from scratch. I naturally got busy in other things and just forgot about it then. And then a few days ago, I remembered it again and just for fun, sowed a few of them in paper cups using garden soil from my lawn.
To be honest, I didn't really expect anything to grow considering late May isn't exactly a good time for germination, that too in a tropical and hot country like India. But still, I religiously watered them for 8-10 days continuously. Nothing happened until yesterday, no germination. Then all of a sudden today morning this one chap (Sweet Williams Flower) sprung out of nowhere right up to almost an inch!
Is it normal for seedlings to sprout overnight like this and that too up to an inch? What's going on here?
