Step Four: Preparing to plant.
At this stage, most people choose to plant the seeds temporarily in a clear plastic bottle with the top cut off. This enables you to see the plant developing its root system, letting you know when it is time to transplant into a pot. Remember to poke a few holes in the bottom of the bottle to allow excess water to drain out and use fertile potting soil.
Step Five: Planting
Once a healthy root system has developed, you can then gently manoeuvre your plant into its permanent home. Gentle dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots and transplant into this new home, leaving the seed resting on the surface so that you can monitor its progress.
