Partial batch kept indoors and planted in pre-moistened potting mix and vermiculite in a sealed plastic water jug. First sprout appeared this morning. I'll remove the cap and move the container from a cool, north-facing window to a south-facing window tomorrow.

Seedlings have started sporting tiny true leaves.

They are still under an inch in height...

...but their roots are already five to six inches long.

Plants have not required any additional water as of yet.

Seeds are still sprouting; I noticed one new one today, for a total of six. Nearing 100 percent germination.

Two seedlings have a true leaf each, and are between one to one and a half inches tall. Plants are still being maintained under natural light conditions, with very little direct or strong sunshine. So far, five out of six days have been overcast throughout the entire trial period.

As of yet, no additional water or fertilizer has been added.

I can't believe these aren't asking for water yet. Blinking

So far, jug-sowing seems to be as care-free indoors as it is outdoors.
