Soak seeds in warm water for about 24 hours before sowing. Plant the seeds in a well-draining potting mix, lightly cover them, and keep them consistently moist in a warm environment. Germination can take a few weeks to a few months.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
