Start by filling your seed flats with a good seed-starting mix or formula that you should wet thoroughly. Scatter your seeds over the top of the seed tray and press down lightly. Do not cover seeds. Also when you water do so from the bottom of the tray as to not disturb the new seedlings. Our seeds are refined which improves the germination and uniformity

Soil: Fertilize regularly.
|Temperature: Grow on at 65-75° days and 62-65° nights. Impatiens are very temperature sensitive: above 85° will cause plants to stretch, while below 60° will delay flowering and slow growth, and below 55° will cause chill injury.|
|Indoor planting: Site in full sun or bright light in a rich soil. remove dead flowers and leaves to tidy plants, pinch growth to increase branching and promote a tight habit, and do not allow plants to dry out.|
