Before planting the seeds you will need to gently scratch / scrape their outer surface and soak them in room\temperature water (20°C/68°F) for 16-24 hours.
You will only need to sow about 7 seeds in each pot. You can keep the rest in the
packet and stored in a cool, dark place for future use (be aware of the expiration
Place the peat soil disc in the middle of a large bowl and pure ½ a glass of room
temperature water around it. Then slowly add small portions of water on the disc and
let the soil expand on its own. Repeat this process until it reaches about 6-7 times its
original size. It can take 20-30 minutes for the full process. Once the disc is expanded,
crumble the soil, squeeze it firmly to drain any excess water. Continue to drain the
water until the soil is slightly wet, yet fluffy and does not have water dripping out.
Using your finger, create multiple small ¼ inch holes in the soil and place a single seed in
each hole. A pot should contain about 7 seeds. Gently cover the seeds with about ½ inch
of the remaining soil. Do not press or tighten the soil on top of the seeds. Spray some
water on top of the soil to moisten it.
