Growing seeds in a bag helps you see what is happening. It’s also really cool to see the results that usually happen underground.
When you start to garden, initially getting seeds to grow can be a little tricky. You plant them in the soil and then wait. You have no idea if anything is happening underground. You don’t know if the seeds were washed away or are simply bad seeds.
So, growing seeds in a bag helps you monitor what is happening .
How To Grow Seeds In A Bag
~Take a piece of paper towel and fold it in half. Wet the towel, but don’t make it so wet that it’s dripping with water.
~Place your chosen seeds on a paper towel. Only place them on one half of the towel because you’ll be folding it in half. Space them out so they are at least a couple of finger spacings apart.
3. Fold the towel in half again and press so the seeds make good contact with the paper towel on both sides. 4. Place your loaded towel in a zip-lock style plastic kitchen storage bag. 5. Gently blow up the bag. This will add extra carbon dioxide to the air. 6. Place the sealed bag in a warm place. Between seventy and eighty degrees would be ideal. 7. After a week check on your seeds to see how they are doing. They may take a couple of weeks to sprout well. When they sprout, they will be ready to transfer to a small pot with good rich soil in it.
Nurture and grow three seeds successfully in your bag and transfer into pots.
