How to Germinate our seeds
Seeds need three things during germination.
They specifically need heat, air flow and moisture. Follow the method below and you should have no problems.
WARNING!!! DO NOT USE HEATPADS, REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER OR PLASTIC BAGS. USING ANY OF THESE WILL INVALIDATE YOUR GUARANTEE.
Germination Step One – Soaking
Place the seeds in a glass with natural spring water. DO NOT USE tap water, RO water or any other type of water.
IMPORTANT: We’ve found adding a drop of peroxide to the water can help germination if you’re having trouble.
Let them soak for 15 hours. The seeds will float at first and sink as they become saturated. They won’t sink straight away so don’t get discouraged. You can push them down but it’s better to wait around 4 hours before doing this.
Germination Step Two – Paper Towel
Take a paper towel, free from dyes and perfumes, place it on a plate and add the seeds from the glass. Use some water to moisten the paper towel.
You don’t want the towel too wet. The seeds should be kept damp but not swimming.
Step Three – Heat & Darkness
Keep the seeds in a warm, dark room which has a good airflow. Don’t put them in a drawer and if placing them in a closet, keep the door open to allow airflow. Keep the seeds warm and periodically check the seeds to make sure they do not dry out. This is a crucial step so be vigilant!
And finally Step Four
The seeds will develop tap roots within 2-3 days. Transfer them to plain potting soil. DO NOT USE ANYTHING HIGH IN NUTRIENTS. Soil with high level of nutrients can be too harsh for the seedlings. This can cause the seedlings to “burnout”. Be gentle with them at first for the best results.
