Soak the seeds
To simulate the spring season when plants grow best, soak the seed for a day before you get started. They will swell and absorb water, helping trigger germination so they can grow.
Prepare a soil disc
Place a compressed soil disc in a boil and cover with hot water to soften. Over the next few minutes, it will expand to 6-8 times its size, providing you with plenty of soil for your plant.
Drain the soil and potting
Mix the soil to make sure it has been softened throughout, and once cooled, drain the water by firmly squeezing, leaving it damp. Gently crumble soil into a peat pot until almost full, saving some to cover the seeds in the next step.Carefully sprinkle 6-8 pre-soaked seeds onto the soil, and cover with the rest of the soil.
Water and Light
Each type of plant has slightly different water needs – our instructions make it easy to get it just right.Once the seedlings emerge, place near a window or near indoor light that’s on for about 16 hours a day.
Thinning and Repotting
As the seedlings grow, they begin competing for space, light, water and nutrients. To make sure they have enough, you may need to remove (by gently tugging or with a scissors at the stem base) as few, leaving about two inches between the remaining stems. To transplant outside (optional), cover thoroughly with mulch to conserve water and keep out weeds. Also, to acclimate the plants to direct sun, first put them in sunlight outside for just a few hours a day and only then transplant.
