Nice!Those seeds must be pretty fresh if they germinated that fast.By the looks of it,are you germinating in a container with distilled water?If so,that is the same method I have been using with some capes from the seed bank.No signs of germination after 1 week,sadly.

Yes, it is a test tube sized vile of distilled water and started showing signs of life after 10 days. I also started some on sphagnum moss, and I can see some green spots with the naked eye. Still many are ungerminated.
