How to germinate seeds - Step 1

Do not stack the seeds in a small container. They need to breathe

How to germinate seeds - Step 2

On the first 2 days of seed germination,  place them in a dark place. Do remember to allow air flow in this dark place as the seeds need oxygen to germinate. If the water is cloudy, change the water

Open area but not dark place!

Put in a cupboard (dark place) but DO NOT  close the door. They need air!

How to germinate seeds - Step 3

After 2 days, place the seedlings in a location with access to sunlight. Reduce the amount of water to just covering the seedlings. Make sure the roots are submerge in water and not dried up

This is the amount of water you should put in the container. Make sure the seedlings are not dried up or are completely submerge in water. Change water if cloudy. Make sure they have access to sunlight for photosynthesis

When to transplant?

After 14 to 21 days, they are ready to be transplanted into a big pot with soil
