Help a newbie get torenia growing from seed
I only recently got into gardening and planting so I consider myself a pretty ignorant beginner. I feel that the best way for me to learn is to try to cultivate a plant from seed(not sure if I used cultivate correctly here, oh well). I once bought a Proven Winner Torenia for my mom and really liked it, so when I was thinking of a plant to start from seed, I settled on Torenia pretty quickly. I bought Clown Lemon Drop Torenia Seeds from 2bseeds.com.
I was ready to begin so I filled a smallish pot with Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix and pushed three seeds, in a triangle formation, very gently into the soil. I noticed, however, that the seeds were tiny. When I tried to water the plant, the seeds disappeared and because they are so small, I could not find them again. This was about a month ago. The pot is under a lamp and I have continued to water the soil. So far I have not seen any indication of growth. I have no idea if the seeds are getting enough light because I don't know where they are.
If anybody else has experience growing Torenia from seed please help me out. I bought a little packet of fifty seeds, so should i just replant? If I do replant, how do I avoid losing the seeds again? Or do you think that the seeds are probably ok and that I just need to be more patient. Since I am a beginner, any advice about potting-mix, lighting, watering, fertilizing, etc. would be much appreciated. Also, if anyone with Torenia experience has any advice to give, please do not hesitate to lay it on me.
