planting and a new soak II

the two teosinte seedlings i planted three days ago are greening up and they have the telltale purple stems that say teosinte" ( not that other grasses don't have purple stems...but i will accept it as a teosinte confirmation )...the second photo has some blurry green going on but it does do a fair job of illustrating a root emerging from the top of the seed case and loking for the soil...that will need to be covered...the seeds i soaked three days ago show no movement but, after i had given up on them, the original set has produced a third perhaps this seed just takes longer than the varieties i had been working with previously...i will leave the first batch be to see what transpires..i may find myself with more seedlings than room.
