5 seeds Jaboticaba planted

Thanks to Annie (from Malaysian Gardeners Facabook group)  for sending the 5 seeds of Jaboticaba (Brazillian grapes) via post.

Received them some time back but didn't have time to plant them. Hope it's not too late!

If you haven't heard of Jaboticaba. it's this strange grape like fruit that grows on the bark of the tree.
Picture from Wikipedia. Jaboticaba tree or Jabuticaba tree.

Using this Baba small pots to germinate the seeds.

Fill the bottom with some dry nangka leaves to close the holes and to act as mulch.

Top layer soil is coco peat. One seed each pot. Fingers crossed and hoping they will germinate. (20-30 days according to some website)
