The zip lock bag creates a Greenhouse Effect inside the bag and as long as you provide heat and a little light you will love the results.

A key to all this we have found over the years is to add a little hydrogen peroxide to your water. A capful of HP poured into a full bottle of water is all you need to assist in your seed germination.

Seed germination can be tricky with certain seeds and it usually is the ones that were expensive.

If you have had poor results in the past try this paper towel method and you will see how fast the seeds will germinate!

Pro Tip – if you are still having difficulty after using this method you must question the seed viability. In other words maybe the seeds were not good.

The second thing, and we have learned from this mistake, your seeds must go through a cold period. This is called “cold-stratification”.

This is why you will never have seeds if you purchase from our store that have not gone through this cold period.

We store our seeds after they have dried for at least 2-3 weeks.

This puts the seeds in to a hard dormancy that is mimicking nature. After that and the temperatures warm up the seed is more likely to germinate aggressively.

Do seeds need sunlight to germinate?

No. In Fact, many seeds will germinate in the dark if the temperature and soil conditions are good. However, the seedling that germinates will not last long without some light. Light can be that of a grow light that will act as the sun. Nothing can replicate the sun like the sun itself though.

What promotes germination?

3 things. Light, Water and Temperature. Soil plays a big role too but the three main things that will make a seed germinate is sun, moisture and the right temperature according to the seed genus.

    I acquired more a new challenge on this weight loss issue. One issue is that good nutrition is tremendously vital when dieting. A huge reduction in junk food, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and white flour products might be necessary. Holding wastes bloodsuckers, and wastes may prevent goals for losing weight. While particular drugs briefly solve the situation, the nasty side effects usually are not worth it, and they also never supply more than a temporary solution. It is just a known proven fact that 95 of dietary fads fail. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this web site.
