Third photo, step 4. Cover seeds with Miracle Gro Potting Mix and soak
thoroughly. Keep moist until seeds sprout, then don't re-water until
starting to dry too much.
If I pot all the seeds at once, including the unsprouted ones, I keep
the pot constantly moist, maybe with crumbled leaf mulch, for a month or
so until no more seeds are sprouting or until too busy with spring to
Then put pot where temperature is less than 70oF, preferably 50 to 60o.
My unheated sunporch temps range from ~40 to 50 at night to between 50
and 75 during the day. If it gets any warmer, I open the door to the
house and let it warm the house up!
I hope this helps.
