General planting advice

When it comes to watering, do it with moderation! Too much water is just as harmful as too little. The pot and the soil will absorb any excess water, but the substrate should never be waterlogged.

It is important to place the pot in a sunny location so that the seeds can germinate. Temperature is an important growth factor. Depending on which season of the year it is, each seed will need a certain temperature range. Also, the seeds won’t all emerge at the same time, some may take more time than others, so don’t worry! Be patient.

There will come a point when your plant will need more space. Once you notice 2 or 3 “real” leaves, it will be time for you to repot your plant. Be careful, remove the plant gently, ensuring the integrity of the roots (do not pull on the stem), and transplant it to a larger pot, watering abundantly to cohesionize the soil.

Care for every single one of your seeds, they deserve it!
