How To Grow 1700 seeds/gram. This plant is sometimes erratic to start from seed. Using a soil-less mix start seed indoors in early March but soak seed first for several hours before sowing. Keep the growing medium at 15 C (60 F) for the 28 day germination period. After germination, grow on under lights before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site. A late summer sowing outdoors in August will also work for flowering in the following year. Two grams sows 2.5 sq. m. (25 sq. ft.)
