Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from trade. Baggy, 70F, no light (92%G, 7-16d)
  2. Seed garden '02. Baggy, 70F (85%G, 6-7d)
  3. Seed garden '02. Baggy, 65F (75%G, 4-9d)

Seedlings grow fairly fast, and are somewhat frost-tolerant. Note: Tom Clothier's instructions, which call for 70F/35F/50F cycling, appear to be too pessimistic.
