Growing tips


Cover your pots with cling wrap or similar and place them in a warm sunny position. Keep moist but not soggy. Don't allow your soil/ potting medium to dry out.

Once the seedings start to emerge, you can start hardening them up by removing the plastic covering for increasing blocks of time. Eventually you can remove the covering altogether and mist them so they can get the humidity they need. Keep the soil moist while the seedlings are still small, but as they grow you can start letting the soil dry out a little more between waterings.

Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that have not yet germinated, seeds will often lay dormant (in hibernation almost) until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination and sprouting to occur. Containers placed to one side & forgotten about will often surprise long after they were discarded.
