My durian seed actually germinated!

It's durian season and of course I was browsing the internet on the iPad reading about people germinating durian seeds successfully (while eating a durian with my other hand). So instead of throwing away the seed I saved one to see if it can germinate.

Soaked the seed for about 3 days in shallow water in tupperware and the durian seed actually germinated.

Not really planning to get actual fruits from this but as a fun experiment to grow a durian tree as a houseplant. 

Will post pictures of it as it grows (and as long as it survives!!)

Any advice on what type of soil and pot I should transplant this in?

Here are the related links I was browsing on my iPad..
