We have a quick way to germinate these beauties. Place dry seed on bed of moist loose coconut coir in a labelled coffee filter. Fold the coffee filter to make a secure packet. Moisten using very warm (not hot tap water).NOT WET. Place into plastic bag. Place somewhere warm (we tuck ours under the grow lights with the tomato transplants). Get your sowing medium and pots ready as you WILL be transplanting them in 3-4 days. Time your transplant kids so they’re in the garden safely after the threat of frost has past.. Best as 3-4 week transplants. Heavy feeders, needs water & warmth. Habitat: warm well draining fertile soil; full to semi sun. Mulch. Strong trellis keeps bugs off cukes & easier harvests. Outside or Greenhouse culture. 4-4-4 liquid fertilizer every 1-2 weeks is good. Hates wet leaves & cold soil. ALWAYS water with warm water for happy vigorous plants (applies to tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and basil as well)
