In order to successfully germinate seeds in this way, paper towels, a plastic container (for example, from under the cake) or any other container is not very deep, with a flat bottom and a lid.
You need to take napkins, put them in 2-3 layers.
Put them on the bottom of the prepared container. Pour paper napkins with water and place prepared seeds on them.
Then cover the dish with a lid, in which holes must first be made. Instead of a lid, if not, you can use a film and a plastic bag. Then remove the container in a warm and bright place.
After about 2-3 days you can see how the first sprouts hatch. Keep them on napkins until the first pair of leaves appears.
Choose the strongest of the sprouts and transplant them into an individual container, for example a cup, directly with part of the napkin, since the roots hold on to the napkin very tightly.
Of course, you can transplant plants only after the appearance of 2-3 real leaves, but then they will need to be regularly watered gently with a spoon. Strictly avoid drying the wipes, as well as feeding.
What more can be done?
Before germinating the seeds, you can soak them, for example in Epin. If you collected the planting material yourself, it is advisable to process them with a weak solution of manganese, then dry them and only then proceed directly to germination.
This is an interesting way to grow cucumbers. We strongly recommend that you try it.
