Sow the seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix and sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Seeds generally sprout well when sowed in seed-raising mixes; however, the seedlings may be susceptible to a disease called "damping off". Keeping the seeds moist but not overwatered is recommended to reduce the risk. The germination process should take around 14 to 30 days, depending on the plant species.
