Should I soak or not?
Everyone has differing opinions about this, so it gets confusing for new growers. It really is up to personal preference. I know growers who swear by soaking and others who say absolutely not. We have done both and find there is only a slight difference in germination so either is fine. If soaking, make sure to only do so for no more than 24 hours. Soaked seeds will typically germinate in about 7 days. If not soaking, thoroughly wet the soil before planting then let dry out between subsequent waterings. They should germinate in 7-10 days with this method. Our preferred method is to place the seeds in a paper towel inside of a Ziploc bag and use a spray bottle to wet the paper towel. Then store in a cool room and the seed should germinate in about 5-7 days.
