I just purchased some NIP seeds from ebay. I want to take a stab at germinating these seeds. Any suggestions? I'm in Southern California. Thanks!

Hi Tammy,

I've never sowed NIP seeds, but did a search.

Lay seeds flat on moist potting compost. Do not cover seeds. Mist regularly to keep surface of compost wet at all times.

Fresh seeds germinate 10-15 days.

Toss seedlings that are completely white.

There's more but why not sow first? If/When they're old enough, there's more care instructions. Toni

Good luck. Toni
