    Default Morning Glory Problems

    Hi there!
    every year I try and grow this plant but never have much success. Most seeds sprout then I don't know what happens, they get browny transparent blotches all over the leaves then just die. Those that don't get this are just very weak and don't do too well. Any one else get problems with these plants?

    Sorry Eden, this is helpful in the slightest, but I did find the title of this thread amusing. Does anyone else see it, or is it just me?

    I've never had the problem myself of course.

    I've had this problem every year so far, but this year mine have germinated and are looking good. Germinated in small heated propagator and now sitting on lounge windowsill. They are very tender and don't like being wet and cold. I'm hoping I haven't jinxed mine now! I'm going to pot them on tomorrow if they haven't died.

    Many thanks for your clean reply rustylady! Being innocent I never noticed that my problem would be seen in such a way Actually, I did honestly think for a moment while I was typing the question if I should rephrase it, I just hope my husband doesn't read it and take it the wrong way!

    I usually soak them overnight in warm water and then plant them & away they go.
