- Soak seeds for 24 hours in a sealed container.
- Pour contents over a coffee filter or paper towel to drain.
- Arrange seed in a single layer and allow all excess water to drain off.
- Fold seed loosely into the coffee filter or paper towel - the seed and paper should be damp, but not wet.
- Add a dry paper towel and place inside a resealable bag to help maintain even moisture. Do not allow to completely dry out or stay soggy, and replace paper towel as needed.
- Place the sealed bag in your refrigerator and monitor weekly - once you see sprouts begin, it’s time to plant outdoors!
