Germinate at 72-74 °F (22-23 ˚C). Higher temperatures, exceeding 80 °F (27 °C) will inhibit germination. Upon radicle emergence, on day 10-14 reduce the temperature to 68-70 °F (20-21 °C) until cotyledon expansion. On day 21 the temperature can be reduced further to 68 °F (20 °C). For irrigation use warm water (above 64 °F / 18 °C) only. Begin fertilizing early once germination is complete, approximately on the 14th day. Lower rates of feeding at 50 ppm 2-3 times per week will help to size up the seedlings. Under higher light conditions use a 20-10-20 fertilizer and under lower light a 17-5-17. Once seedlings are established the 17-5-17 fertilizer works well. Include a micro nutrient package to give adequate supply of minor elements.
