Last fall during the seed exchange, I received a packet of seeds labeled zabrina. Can anyone tell me what kind of plant this is? How do I get the seeds to grow, they are the only ones I can not get to sprout.

Thank you very much [thinker] [nutz]

If its meant to be spelled Z-E-B-R-I-N-A, the first A being an E then it is:

Wandering Jew-- trailing plant-fleshy stems-pointed oval leaves with silver and bright green stripes -small purple or pink flowers on certain species
Bright light- average room temp.- med.humidity.
All purpose potting soil-allowed to dry between watering to prevent root rot.
My info says propagate from stem cuttings so this may be something TOTALLY different but I couldn't find anything on it spelled with the A...

Frustrated,

Mine just fall onto the dirt in the fall..
Lay there over winter and sprout in the spring.

What have you been doing [critic] to yours to try to get them to sprout?

The only thing that comes to mind [thinker] instantly is these could need a cold [scaredy] period to sprout???

Let me know whatchya been doing to get them started??
