Lychee plant grown from seed

Lychee plant grown from seed in Oslo, Norway

Lychees are a delicious fruit with a large seed in the centre. This is an experiment of a grocery store lychee seed in late December 2016. The owner soaked the seeds in water until the fat end of the seed cracked open. Once this happened, the seeds were transferred into soul and kept on a semi sunny windowsill and kept moist at all times.

The owner of this plant features this and other plants on instragram @cold_jungle
