THE START, Germinate Your Seeds

Step 1. Place seed on a wet paper towel. I personally make sure I have clean water. I will also use spring water in a spray bottle. For older seeds you can soak them in Clean water with a cap of hydrogen peroxide to help the water penetrate the outer shell. You will need a bowl to put the water in. Once the seeds drop to the bottom of bowl, Remove them and place them on to  the damp paper towel. Cover them with  another wet paper towel and place it in a Ziploc bag to lock in the moisture.   ( Allow 2-3 days to pass ) Check and see how long the roots have grown. To get longer roots we will allow them to sit a few day longer in the damp paper towel.

Step 2. Once seed has a root, it is now time to place it into the medium which can be soil , coco or rockwool cube (refer to GPO Book or Part 2 of Class. Allow 3-5 more days to pass.

Depending on the medium and the system you use will dictate your next step. 10-14 day you will see enough growth to transplant.
