Hi all! I just bought a batch of 1000 Jacob's Ladder seeds. I'm only finding vague and scattered info on growing tips for them. Does anyone have any experience with growing this particular plant from seed (indoors)? I currently have them in cells, 3 seeds per cell, lightly moist with a clear lid on top and under a growlight. Anything else I need to do?

Wish I could help, but I've only grown these from plants. I hope you will keep us posted on your progress. I think your technique sounds reasonable.....

Thanks mom2goldens! So far so good. I'm thinking I should add a heat mat....if only I could find that darn thing. How in the world do you lose your germination heat map? Shrug! haha

I have to admit, Robin--I've never lost my heat mat Hilarious! (but that's only because I never take it off my shelving unit where I grow seedlings. But trust me, I've lost plenty of other gardening necessities!!! I never buy good pruners, because I lost at least 2 pair every year. Sighing!
