|My test -|
I started lisianthus from collected seed 1-29-2011 in between damp coffee filters placed in a baggie and set on top of the water heater. I had a shielded light 6" above, with a standard low temp bulb, left on 24 hours a day. I noted amazingly rapid germination by 2-02-2011.
On 2-03-2011 I gently misted the sprouts off of the filters onto damp, sterile seed starting mix with a neutral PH, and covered lightly, misting the top layer with water to finish. I then set the container under the light, and reset it to about 3" above the top of the container. (I used a slotted and lidded, plastic container that grape tomatoes come in from the grocery)
