To plant a seed the root from the seed must be at least 0.5 to 1.5 cm long. Use tweezers to put the seed in the dimple. The root sting (germinated root from the seed) should point downwards. Is the seed stuck to the moist paper towel? Don’t pull the seed but spray the seed with water again. You will see that the seed is now easily released.
To choose the right pot for your grow it’s important to determine the preferred plant height before planting your seeds. Large plants won’t grow in small pots as small pot’s don’t provide enough space for root development. As a general rule every 5 liters is equal to 20 cm of plant-height. Although this rule doesn’t apply to all species, it’s a useful indication for the final plant height.
