*Use good potting mix because seeds push up out of the soil and heavy soil impede's their imminent emergence.
*Cover the seeds with soil depth of 3 times the thickness of the seed.
*Keep soil evenly moist until seed leaves emerge. To prevent damping off diseases, remove the covering immediately after the seed leaves emerge.
*Once seed leaves emerge water less. Let the surface of the soil dry out between watering. This reduces disease.
