It's finally sprouted! I have to say I forgot to check the pots these last few days, so I don't know exactly how long it took. But there it is! In all its splendour and glory, and the second pot - that I planted one day later - has one small sprout and a cracking mound of earth where the second seed was buried.
The two Kensington Pride mangoes were planted a few days later, and they have yet to appear. I'm still hopeful! These first two mangoes are from mono-embryonic seed which means they will grow one tree each, and the KP seeds are poly-embryonic. Apparently you are supposed to keep the weKest seedling from each seed as these are most likely to be clones of the 'mother tree' ! Weird, huh?
In other news, on Friday I go to Auckland for my six monthly Inquisition / sim check, and today I need to start studying. Last time I gave it about a month, and this time I'm giving it five days, so either I have come on in leaps and bounds and amazing, or else I am demotivated and just don't care enough. I figure I'm amazing.
My macbook pro has chosen this stressful week in my life to give up the ghost, so i can't access any of my updated manuals. Thankfully I do have the old ones on my ipad, so hopefully not too much has changed... I am waiting for the apple store to get in a new hard drive so that I can get this thing fixed! My life is worthless without a laptop...haha
Right, I must stop procrastinating and get back to work...
