How to make its germinated seeds ?
- To soak 2 spoons with soup of seeds during 3 to 4 hours in water (or a complete night)
- To plunge the perforated container in fresh water during approximately 5 minutes. The clay will soak in water, which will ensure a good moisture content during germination. Remove the container from the water and drain it.
- To lay out there the seeds beforehand soaked and drained.
- Put the container with germination on the enamelled bottom, then cover with the lid.
- To pass the seeds to fresh water 2 times per day (morning and evening) with the top of a sink before replacing it on the enamelled bottom.
- Depending on the type of seeds, the germination period can go from 2 to 14 days.
The water that runs off the bottom of the germinator can be used to water the plants (it contains good vitamins and minerals).
If you are using very small seeds that may pass through the holes in the container, it is recommended to use a thin cloth on the bottom of the container.
The possible appearance of stains on the bottom of the germination containers has no influence on the use of the germinator.
After use, clean the various parts of the germoir with water by using a hard brush if necessary. To unblock the holes (seeds or roots), use a needle.
It is also possible to scald the germinator. In this case, it is imperative to use filtered water, because the limestone above 60° C can damage the porosity of the clay
