Seed Sowing Guide
1. Fill up the seedling pot with seedling soil, poke a hole on the soil with a finger, pour 2-3 seeds into the hole and cover with a thin layer of soil.
2. Place the seedling pot under the shade, water once a day in the morning. The seeds will germinate within 7-15 days, after which the seedling pot should be moved to a place with moderate indirect sunlight (avoid direct sunlight).
3. When the seedlings grow 3-4 true leaves, they are ready for transplant into a flower pot. Keep a 5-10cm distance between plants.
4. Top-dress with Flowering Fertilizer weekly. You may put the fertilizer in the middle of the gap between two plants, cover with soil, and water after fertilization.
5. Your seedlings are expected to flower in 55-60 days from transplanting date.
