    Hello Friends,

    I always take a small pot, 3 inches or so, place a soilless mix in it leaving the level of the soil about 1 inch from the top of the pot, pour water over it to fill up the inch space you left, the water will drain out the bottom. Place the seed in the soilless mix at a depth of 1/2 inch. Place the pot in a warm spot (70-80 degrees). In 24 hours come back and spray the area where you planted the seed, 6-8 good squirts from your spray bottle. After that every 12 hours come back and spray the area where the seed is until it germinates. It will take anywhere from 2-4 days to germinate. On day 3 gently pour water to fill the pot and allow it to drain, weather you see the seedling or not to wet the whole pot of soil. Continue spraying at 12 hour intervals.
    Sounds more complex than it is, but i have about a 95% success rate with this method, and you don’t have to mess around with the seed once it has popped out of its shell, possibly damaging the root.

    Thanks and Regards,
    William Hayden
