This is one of the most popular methods of growing seeds quickly and the success rate is very high. It’s an easy diy to try!
We were very excited when we found out how quickly and easily you can get seeds up and happening. Would you have guessed one day is all that is required?
According to the Blogger, the method is known as pre-sprouting, or pre-germination and it reduces the time of seed germination by up to 70%. The best part is you can double the success rate.
For this process, you are going to need a plastic or glass container. Be sure that it has a well fitting lid.
Using a clear container or jar will allow you to view the progress of your seeds. It’s not essential though as the seeds don’t need light to send out roots.
What you will need to do is put paper towel in the base of the container. You will then add water but only until the paper towel is moist. Do not over water as the last thing you want is puddles! Now comes the fun part. You are going to sprinkle your seeds on the paper towel.
You can group your seeds but it might be a good idea to draw a chart so you know exactly which seed is what.

Many seeds look similar in fact identical in many cases so write down for future reference. Ananda, the Blogger, has given some great advice regarding how long various seeds will take to germinate below. She says ..
“Start checking on them the next day. If the seeds are really fresh, some will germinate in as little as 1 day! The fastest ones include everything in the cabbage family – bok choi, broccoli, kale, cauliflower etc, and lettuce. The slowest ones are pepper, eggplant, fennel, celery, which may take 5+ days. The rest such as tomato, beets, chard, squash, onions, will take about 3 days” – Ananda – “A Piece of Rainbow”
