Times will vary depending on time of year and temperature/humidity in your home. The seeds will naturally grow a lot faster during warmer months.
If you feel your seeds are slow to germinate, simply give your seeds a good mist with some water and make sure the lid is sitting on securely.
The seeds need 3 things in order to sprout happily:
- Consistent Moisture
- Correct temperature (they will germinate at their best between 18c-24c)
A seeds sole mission is to sprout! It is what they want to do. If something isn't working it will most likely mean one of these three things isn't quite right.
During winter months be careful of fireplaces and heat pumps. If the seeds are too near to either of these things it can cause the top of the pad to dry out and stunt the sprouting process. Again, a mist of water will fix this and get your seeds back on track.
If placed on a windowsill keep in mind how low the temperature might drop overnight. If your seeds get too cold it will also slow the sprouting process.
Your kit will be happiest if you find a spot with a consistent temperature, somewhere away from cold draughts, direct hot hot sunlight (summer months) or hot fireplaces or drying heat pumps.
While Living Greens take the utmost care to source high quality seed with high germination (sprouting) rates, we are working with nature and no single seed is ever 100% guaranteed to sprout.
