For this, the seed is placed between two paper sheets, or simply wrapped in toilet paper or a paper towel to absorb moisture faster.
Seeds need to be planted to a depth of 5 mm to 10 mm, slightly sprinkled with earth. After this, you should gently pour them, making sure that the seed is not washed from the ground.

Please seeds stored in a cool, dry place.
