C. sp. 'Lingga - Red' seeds germination progress

After about 3 days after harvesting the seeds out of the pod, 12 out of 40 plus healthier seeds have germinated. So far typically, a green tip will start to grow out from one end of a seed (see 1st photograph below), as the the tip lengthen, it will reveal loops at the sides (see 2nd photograph below) which will spread apart to look like antennas (see 3rd photograph below) as the tip continue to grow longer. Sorry I am just an amateur hobbyist so my descriptions of my observations might sound crude to some. :-p
