Fill 3-inch starter pots with standard, fertilizer-free potting soil. Leave the top 1/2 inch of each pot empty. Place one seed on the potting soil and press it lightly onto the surface. Do not cover the seed. Mist the seeds to hydrate them and settle them into the soil. Cover each pot with a small piece of plastic wrap. Set the pots on a germination mat set to 70 degrees Fahrenheit near a large window. Provide additional light with a fluorescent lamp, if needed. Water the seeds whenever the surface of the potting soil feels almost dry. Use a spray bottle to water, since the mist is less likely to disturb the seeds or oversaturate the soil. Watch for germination one to three weeks after sowing. Keep the seedlings on the germination mat for another two weeks, or until the seedlings are tall enough to touch the plastic wrap.
