It might help someone... I tried starting seeds in dirt but mold took over , I always wash my seeds now in a 10 percent bleach to 90 water solution dump em on a napkin , transfer them to a sterile jar of sand thats been microwaved for a few minutes then left to cool and watered with regular bottled spring water and covered with plastic , after germination I pluck the seed casings out mostly with tweezers here are jars at one and 2 months , I keep the moisture just wet at the top of the sand and only fert once on the 2nd month with 1/8th strength 2-7-7 fert water .. just a few drops , a quarter of a capful or so.
By 90 days I plant them.
I should mention after I plant them I mist them almost daily with a spray bottle for an additional month or two but I do let them almost dry out in that period .. its a transitional time.
