Germination: Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Flatten the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water. Place the tiny seeds on the surface, and cover them with a very thin layer of sand. Keep moist. If seedlings do not appear within 2 months, place the pot in a fridge or cold location for 6 weeks, and then bring them back to warmth. Once seedlings emerge, place the pot in a sunny place, or under bright grow lights.
