fail. Start seeds in Jiffy 7’s, Jiffy pots with a good soil substitute or in 50 cell Pro-trays. Place seed pointed end up. Cover seed growing containers with a gro-dome or plastic wrap. Keep in light but out of direct sunlight or you will cook them. Germinate at 80° to 90° for minimum of 60
hours. Above or below this temperature, they will not germinate. After plants emerge, remove cover and place in sunlight. Grow at 60° to
70°. After plants have their 2nd true leaf, plant outdoors. You will need 3-4 weeks from planting seeds indoors until it is time to transplant
plants outdoors. If plants grow until they reach the 4th leaf or more,
throw them out and start over as yield will be cut if plants are this large.
