(Find more info on germinating seeds by going to our seed guide)

To germinate: Prep moist, well-draining medium consisting of a mix of potting mix and perlite and plant the seeds on the surface. Cover the seeds lightly with sand and make sure that the medium remains moist until the seeds germinate by covering the planter with a plastic cover(ziploc bag, plastic wrap, lid, etc). Keep the seeds around 70-80F and well lit. Most should sprout within 12 weeks, and if conditions are right, some can germinate within a couple of weeks.

Make sure the soil remains moist but not soggy. The older the seedlings get, the more you can allow the soil to dry out between waterings.
