Some of the tea seeds that I placed in the aquaponic rafts are slowly sprouting. The picture shows the underside of a raft with the tea seed root formed after ten days in the system. It is held in place by a plastic foam insert that is wedged inside of a two-inch hole in the raft.


I've also ordered more tea seeds from China since there is limited availability stateside. That's not to say that these seeds are viable since they arrived looking pretty dry. When properly stored they should be placed in a medium such as coir to maintain a bit of moisture. Still, if they were in fact harvested at the end of 2016, I should get a significant number to germinate (I would be happy with 25 to 30 percent).
