- I GAVE, dammit!
This is what I do:
put in jam jar with lid with holes in it (like a screen). Fill up jar and rinse several times, then leave with water in it soaking overnight.
12 hours later: rinse seeds and leave the jar upside down to drain.
do this about 3 or 4 more times, until you see the seeds sprouting (maybe 1/4" sprout).
At this stage spread them out on the vermiculite. Cover and keep in a dark place until they're a couple of inches high - then uncover and put in sun to green up!
It would be nice if I could avoid having to use this nasty slurry fertilizer. It just looks really, really, really gross.
