In the successful germination of a seed, the two factors heat and moisture play an important role.

The natural germination

In the wild, the adult plant produces seeds. These fall to the ground, where they rest throughout the winter. In the spring, the soil warms up and the amount of rainfall increases – the seed awakens from its hibernation. Since the winter can be very hard and in addition come up with other harmful influences of nature such as insects, parasites or fungal diseases, this suggests natural selection. Many seeds do not survive the winter; Only the strongest and most resilient are brought to life and begin to germinate.

Germination in indoor growing

As in all areas of indoor growing, it is always trying to artificially create the optimal conditions for the plant or the seed. Thus, however, eliminates the natural selection completely. Even the relatively weak seeds that would die in the wild are germinated in this way. Therefore, all particularly slow-developing and weak plants and genetically different plants should be sorted out by hand by the home gardener. How strict the selection is, is up to you.

Two methods of germination – Procedure

As already described, seeds require heat and moisture to germinate. The easiest way is, therefore, to put it in moist (not wet!) Preheated earth, we recommend to put peat source pots (Jiffy). Care should be taken to provide all conditions as favourable as possible. This ensures that all seedlings develop equally fast and well. The earth should not be pressed or only slightly pressed. The seed is placed about 0.5 cm below the surface of the earth and lightly covered. Before that, they should (but do not!) Have to be germinated first.

1. The method in a glass of water

In this method, the seeds are simply placed in a glass of mineral water with a pH of 7 and placed in a dark corner. The glass can also be covered, as long as the seeds are in the dark. After about 2 days, the shell bursts and the radicle comes to light. Once it can be recognized as a white spot, the seedling should already be taken out of the glass and placed in the moist and slightly preheated Jiffy. The radicle shows it down.

In the “water glass method”, the seeds germinate a bit faster because they are soaked quickly and thoroughly. However, the danger is greater than if they are too long in the water, they get too little oxygen and mould or even rot.
Also, it is relatively difficult to unscrew them out of the water glass and into the ground. However, it is relatively easy to see which seeds are germinable and which are not. Namely, the germinable seeds go underground within a day, while the non-germinable seeds swim longer on the surface.

2. Germination between damp kitchen paper

You layout a plate or a lid of a Tupper bowl with a small edge with several layers of kitchen roll. Then the seeds are distributed and then covered with a piece of kitchen roll. The whole is now moistened sufficiently with water with a pH of 6.5. Optionally, everything can now be placed in a dark corner. Several times a day to see if any evaporated water must be refilled since the seeds must not be allowed to dry at any time. Or you darken by covering the whole thing with a second plate. It only has to be aired several times a day for better air circulation and the prevention of mould growth.

After 2-3 days, the seed coat splits and the radicle comes to light. Thereafter, the seedling should also be planted relatively quickly in this method in a Jiffy – so necessarily check regularly. If you wait too long, the roots become too long, turn-in and are difficult to treat. Shortly after germination, the roots also get very fine root hairs, which anchor themselves in kitchen paper and can then hardly be removed unscathed. Too much damage or breakage of the root almost always means the death of the plant at this early stage.

For fresh, high-quality seeds, the germination rate is 95%.

Weak or slow germinating or growing plants can be sorted out.

The masks inbreeding from seeds:

Excessive irrigation of the seeds causes the roots to suffocate and shoot the plant too quickly.

Too low soil temperatures inhibit the development of the roots.

Eutrophication! No fertilizer until the first correct leaves have developed.

Too small or too large distance of the light source to the young shoots. Too small a distance leads to burns, too much distance to form long stems.

Small plants and seedlings need wind to form strong branches and branches. He also prevents pests, as they feel so less comfortable.

Too tightly pressed soil inhibits the root growth, up to the death of the root.

Drying of the kitchen paper and thus the seeds during germination. To late seedlings.

The germination ability

In general, it can be said that seedlings develop best at temperatures between 18 and 25 °. Since seeds, as already described, rest during the winter until spring and are not supposed to germinate into winter, fresh seeds are protected against rapid germination. But if they are well deposited, the germination rate is over 90%. Very old seeds germinate very slowly or not at all. In good (cool and dry) storage, however, they can preserve their germination for many years. However, germination may take up to four weeks (!).

The moon phases

Over the moon phases, one hears again and again that they have not only influence on us humans, but also on plants.
So it is believed that seeds germinate best when they are sown after new moon and a few days before full moon …
