DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 72-75°F (22-24°C).

Transplant (recommended): Sow 8-10 weeks before last frost. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination; a light covering of vermiculite may be used to help maintain moisture. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. Transplant into cell packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear. Keep the foliage dry if possible and avoid watering late in the day to reduce the risk of Alternaria. Direct seeding is not recommended.
