Direct sow when the soil is warm (+15°C). Pre-cultivation is recommended.
Get started by pre-cultivating your seeds 3-4 weeks before replanting them outside. Sow 1 seed per pot and keep it in a hot environment (25-30°C) in order for it to sprout. Once the plant starts to appear, place the pot in a light area with room temperature.
