  • Fine sandy soil is required for seedbed (Outdoors), or coco peat is used as sowing medium for seedling trays (Indoors)
  • Before sowing the seeds, soil should be made slightly moist.
  • Immediately after sowing the seeds, watering should be done carefully with a watering can.
  • Seedlings are allowed to grow on seedbeds/trays kept in semi-shade.
