GROWING INSTRUCTIONS (for one planter)
Thank you for selecting this quality grow kit!
For best results we recommend to follow these instructions. The seeds can be started indoors and eventually placed outdoors after danger of last frost. The best time to start your indoor kit is from mid February until June.
1. Fill up a separate bucket or pot with ¾ cup (6 fluid ounces) of luke warm water. Place growing medium pellet in the water and stir until it is fully expanded. Once water has been completely absorbed you can loosen the growing medium with a fork (for best results leave it overnight for complete absorption).
2. Place the planter on a saucer or similar and fill the planter with 80% of the expanded growing medium.
3. Carefully open the seed packet and place seeds, evenly divided, in the growing medium. Place some of the left over medium on the seeds and tamp very lightly.
4. Place the planter in a warm and sunny spot of ±68º F (20ºC). Best is to rotate the planter a little daily to make sure sunlight is divided evenly.
5. Keep the medium moist, but avoid soaking completely! Use a fine mist or gently sprinkle some water on top to moisten. Water daily with a fine mist to keep moist. A spray bottle is a perfect tool to water your plants.
6. To stimulate germination of the seeds, you can cover the pot with a piece of plastic wrap to keep the moisture content higher. Keep growing medium moist, but do not allow it to become soggy as this will cause the seeds to rot.
7. When the seedlings reach 2 to 4 inches, you should transplant them in larger planters. Just moisten the seedbed and carefully separate the fragile plants, taking special care not to damage the stems or roots while moving. Transplant about 8 to 10 inches apart and place planter in your garden or patio.
Note: It may take two seasons for berry plants to grow fruits
It is important to feed your plants. When your seedlings reach 2 to 3 inches use a standard (preferable liquid) fertilizer and follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging.
Staking helps your new seedlings to grow straight and strong. They ensure that all growing flowers receive enough sunlight. Note: Water may leak through the bottom opening of the pot. Mist regularly but do not over water. Do not move your plants outside until after last frost.
WARNING: Do Not Eat Seeds!
