Water, Sun & Soil
Starting indoor: Pour hot boiling water onto seed, then let stand in water for 24 hours. Sow seed 1/4" deep.
Germination & Growth
Germination should take place within 14-21 days with the boiling water method. Sulfuric acid treatment may be required if boiling water method is insufficient.
