Sow 4mm deep. Mist seed into medium. Cover to preserve moisture and give gentle warmth. Will germinate in 4-6 days.  Give strong indirect light as the seedlings break the soil surface.  Don’t let seedlings dry out. Transplant out after threat of frost is past and preferably at the 3-4 true leaf stage. Space plants 55 cm part in soil amended with a well balanced low nitrogen fertilizer.  Prefers a grow temp of 25C.
