These seeds are VERY tough, so they need extra effort to make them germinate.
FIRST Refrigerate for one week.
Then gather the following items:
- 1 cup of water than has been standing for 24 hours
- paper towels
- a plate
- a large ziplock baggie
- heating pad
This is the way I've germinated hard seeds since I was a child.
First, remove the outer skin of these seeds. They are in little pods. Take care. It is easy to confuse the seeds for their thin pods. The seeds are so small. That also makes the nick method of germinating very hard.
Place a layer or two of paper towels on a plate. Add enough water that it begins to climb up the towels, but is not standing in the plate. Place your seeds slightly spread out on the towels. Cover with another paper towel or two and press down so that the water starts to saturate the new cloths. add more water if necessary so that it's all saturated, but NOT dripping. Roll the towels up VERY loosely and place in the zip lock bag. DO NOT close the baggie all the way. Leave a 1-inch opening. I even open the baggie all the way a couple times a day and close back (with the one inch gap still in place) to let fresh air in. Plants need air.
Place the baggie back on the plate and place the plate on a heating pad on LOW in a safe place where it can be monitored. After just 24 hours, if you carefully unroll part of the baggie and separate the layers, you will see seeds popping open, and maybe even germinating. Placing in sunlight will help. The baggie will keep them from drying out.Read more ›
I got him these seeds to show him how to grow plants from seeds
They turned up very quickly
Put them in the fridge for a week
Soaked them for 24 hours
Then planted them
2 days later we have healthy shoots
Very happy with purchase
For my second attempt, I started the seeds with a seed heat mat. I'm pretty sure my germination rate was close to 100%! I kept them on the heat as seedlings and didn't lose any!
These seeds were great and I would definitely buy them again! I ended up with a ton of great, strong, beautiful and fun plants!
1. Refrigerated seed packet for 1 week.
2. Soaked 40 seeds for 24 hours in room-temperature water.
3. Set A of 20 seeds I planted and covered with a ziploc bag to make a mini greenhouse. Set B of 20 seeds I wrapped in a wet (saturated, not dripping) paper towel, put it in a ziploc with a 1-inch opening, and clothes-pinned it to my baseboard heat. Unzipped all the way a couple times during day to let more air in.
4. 24 hours later, I removed Set B from the wet paper towel and planted those as well, in the same manner as Set A. 13/20 seeds had shoots coming out at the time.
5. After 1 day passed, Set B started to send shoots out of the dirt. In the evening of the same day, Set A also started sending shoots up.
Set A currently has 12 shoots / 20 seeds, and Set B has 13 shoots / 20 seeds. So I'm pretty happy. The damp paper towl + heat seems to have sped up the germination process, though it had only 1 additional seed sprout. Hoping to have some healthy, adult sensitive plants soon!
