Let’s move on to seeding. Here are some things to keep in mind when sowing
– Make sure your seeds are healthy, unhealthy seeds give weak seedlings and they do not grow healthy.
– Weak seeds are lighter, they float in water, smaller than usual, pale in color and especially with wrinkled seed cover. If purchased in a store, be sure to check the expiration date.
– It is good practice to store them in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and soak them for a few hours before sowing your seeds.
– Now, before sowing, wet the soil or the coconut peat a little. Do not pour water, sprinkle gently on the top layer. Overwatering will drown the seed.
– Very important, do not bury the seed too deep, place the seeds no more than 1-2cm in the soil, deeper and the seedling will have difficulty coming out.
– Never compact the soil or coconut peat very tightly, sow in loose soil.
– If you can, cover the seeded area for 2-3 days until you see sprouts and water thoroughly. Not too much, just wet the top layer.
– If you sprouted in a nursery bag or tray and need to transplant to your pot or garden, do it after you have obtained 3-4 true leaves, gently.
– If you are growing in hydroponics, you can simply move the coconut piece to a mesh pot directly in NFT Channel4
