Newbie question - transplanting germinated seeds

Posted by zone_8grandma (My Page) on

I've lurked here for a long time, but this is my first post. I tried the "baggie" method of germinating some Thunbergia seeds and four have sprouted after only 5 days! I'm pretty thrilled because the seeds I planted in a container took three weeks to germinate and only about 1/2 are up.

My question. Can I go ahead and moved the germinated seeds to a jiffy pot with regular potting soil? And how deep should I plant them? Should I cover tghe whole seed?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Depth would depend on how far along they are, but generally, plant them the same depth as you would if you were planting the seeds directly in the soil. Regular potting mix will be fine.

Remember to put the little "tail" down. That is the root. I use a tweezers to plant the seeds.
