Sow the seeds in moist soil and make sure to water it regularly. You can also cover the seeds with plastic or place them in a mini greenhouse. Before replanting, the seeds should be placed in a warm environment with a temperature between 20-22 °C in order for them to sprout.
Once the seeds have sprouted, place them in a light and cool environment, preferably with a plant growing lamp. When the plants are big enough, replant them in bigger pots with fertilized soil (1 plant per pot) and place them outside when the night temperature is minimum 8°C.
