- If the cultivation soil is too wet, the seeds start to rot.
- If the cultivation soil is too dry – even for a short time – the germination process stops and many seeds don’t carry on even if you moisten the soil again.
- The temperature recommendations we give are based on experience. However, the seeds react individually and often more sensitive to temperature fluctuations.
- The estimated time for the germination we give is an experience-based average and can’t be taken too much into account. Even in nature there are sometimes long delays and it is possible that your seedling will come up much later than expected.
- It is also possible that the germination rate that we get from our suppliers doesn’t match the actual success rate, but we always strive to rule that out by taking samples.
The seeds of most plants contain naturally stored nutrients that are essential to young plants after germination to build their basic organs:
