There are some videos that appear to show blueberry seeds germinating in nothing but water, for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpHXa66fc9E. I cannot find any information on this outside YouTube, in particular nothing in writing.

Question: Does this actually work? If yes, what is the precise procedure?

  • I see 3 weeks of soaking in bottled water. Then moving to soil. It may not be a hoax, but nothing in writing tells you something, too. Commented Sep 3, 2023 at 20:10

I tried this with blueberry seeds of 3 different origins - it did not work.
