I had mentioned in my last post about my adventure growing Rajnigandha (Polianthes Tuberosa). I had received a complimentary basil seed pack with lots of tiny seeds in it along with Rajnigandha (polianthes tuberosa). This is my first time growing Basil & just the second plant that i tried growing in my entire existence.
I had many plastic transparent glasses, normally used as disposable glasses during small gatherings. Took 6 glasses drilled small holes at the bottom of each glass, filled them half with coco peth, poured water & let it drain and then sprinkled some seeds of Basil in each glass.Some seeds germinate faster, some take time & some don’t respond.
Below is the pics of the seeds germinated after a week.
The below pics is around after 25-30 days(not sure of the time line),
Care needs to be taken after the seeds germinate and till true leaf appears.
I had keep the seedling in some shade till true leaf appear, just wanted to protect it from harsh sunlight. I am not sure about how much sunlight the seedling needs to be exposed to, just went with my hunch and my observation of the plants health.The plant is now more than a month old, 5- 6 leaves on the baby plant and the leaves really smell good.
will transplant the plant from the plastic glass to a small plastic pot & will add some compost to see how it grows.
