Not long ago a friend went on a vacation to Florida, and brought back some oranges and grapefruit to our family. They were of course delicious! As I finished up the final grapefruit, I decided I needed to plant one of the seeds to grow my own Florida grapefruit tree. From my research on starting seeds from citrus plants, I have found one main issue. The seed needs to be planted immediately. If it sits around, it will merely dry out, and won't germinate. I planted the seed in a small pot filled with a seed starting mix, and watered it thoroughly. I have grow lights that I placed it under, but I'm sure a bright sunny window would also work. From my experience, it takes several weeks before the plant begins to grow. But I just kept on making sure the soil stayed moist. One day, when I checked the plant, there it was!! A beautiful shiny green leaf coming out of the soil. It is now several inches tall. In fact there are actually two plants growing side by side in the little pot. It is just a little reminder to me of God's greatness in all things.
