Our seeds are dry and in complete dormancy to prevent from wetness in transit in case they are ruined by mildew.
When the customers receive the seeds, we suggest them to soak seeds in the water for 2-4 hours before sowing in order to increase the germination rate.
After sowing, keep the soil wet for 10 days until the sprouts appear.
Please take care of the temperature, which will affect the germination rate directly. The suitable temperature is between 22-35 Celsius degree
Before you prepare for sowing, you should check out the weather forecast,  if the weather forecast states that it will be rainy and cloudy in following 7 days, it will affect the germination rate.
So please make sure that the weather will continuously be sunnyduring sowing.

Happy Sowing.

Our seeds are complete dry and in the dormancy, if humidity is not enough, the seeds couldn't wake up,

If you would like to sow in small amount, we suggest that you could try this tissue paper sowing and covered with plastic wrap,
this sowing way is more stable and easy to observe the situation of germination, please refer to the below link for details, and till the seedlings appear 3-4 leaves, you could move the seedlings in the soil, but due to after finishing sowing, the place everyone puts the seeds is different, you still need to observe by yourself and judge if you need to add water again.

Usually, during sowing, except the seed bed lacks water seriously, we won't remove the plastic or open the lid till all seedlings reach 70% sprouting, if you often disturb the seedlings, this situation will influence the germination result, because in these nursery pots covered on the plastic wrap, it will produce water vapor, and water vapor could block the sunlight, that's why we suggest you could let your seeds under sunlight directly, it could let your seeds grow quickly. If you are using a seedling heating mat, if possible, use a lamp for the lighting. The light of this ordinary tube looks like sunlight of day time. (See picture attached for your reference) pictures 2 pictures 3 .

Please refer to our below explanation of how to use fertilizer is based on temperature condition between 22-35 Celsius degree.
Under this temperature condition, we divide plants growth stage into four to explain.

The first stage (sowing to one month old seedlings), pictures 2
we do not suggest to use any fertilizer in the media at this period.
because the plants will grow fast at this stage.
During this period, we will use liquid fertilizer and spray once or twice a week.
Please use high N and low P and K liquid fertilizer, such as N20-P15-K15 and plant in the 1 inch pot tray.

The second stage (one month to two months old seedlings),
we will still suggest to use liquid fertilizer at this period.
But the N:P:K ratios in fertilizer should be changed to the same level,
such as N20-P20-K20 and spray once or twice a week.

The third stage (after two months old seedlings),
we prepare to transplant seedlings to a bigger pot(3 inch pot).
When transplanting the seedlings,
we will add slow release chemical fertilizer which can maintain for one year into media and stir with media.
Because the plants will grow much faster at this period and the plants need more fertilizer to grow strong.
We will use slow release chemical fertilizer which N:P:K ratios is same, for example N20-P20-K20.

Also, we will spray liquid fertilizer N:P:K ratios in same level to plant leaves
such as N20-P20-K20 once or twice a week,
in order to supplement insufficient part during this fast growing period.
The leaves surface will absorb liquid fertilizer easily.

The forth stage (after four months old seedlings),
during this period, the plants are going to bloom, if the temperature keep between 22-35 Celsius degree.
We will chang liquid fertilizer N:P:K ratios.
We will use liquid fertilizer which have high P,K and low N or even stopping N,
such as N8:P15:K15. And still spray once or twice a week.

If your plants have already grown the (after Six months old seedlings), such as N 0~10:P 15~30:K 15~30.
and you want to see you plants have flowers often.
please use liquid fertilizer which have more P and K and spray once or twice a week to your plants' leaves.
The leaves surface will absorb liquid fertilizer easily.
Please avoid to spray liquid fertilizer under strong sunlight.
The best time is to spray in the morning or in afternoon after sunset.
This will help your plants to bloom quickly.

If the temperature below 20 Celsius degree, please stop to use the fertilizer.
Because the plant will be dormancy in the cold weather.
When the weather become warm, you can fertilize your plants again.
