Update on growing myrtaceous fruits: Eugenia uhalva added to unsuccessfull list

My third attempt at growing Eugenia uhalva has failed.

Each attempt took 6 months. The seeds are extremely difficult to germinate, then grow slower than anything I've ever seen, then just when you think , ok its going to grow its first real leaf, the shoot withers and dies.

Just to make matters worse, a second shoot may emerge a few weeks later, only to suffer the same fate after weeks of anticipation. All in all, about 6 months of wasted time per try.

If anyone succeeds in growing it, I'd be interested to find out how.
