@kypie8 I was nervous too! I read 14 days minimum but mine only took 7 days so far! I'm in shock but super happy!! :)

@rosechilders101 Wow, they did germinate very quickly! Are you using grow lights? Did you germinate the seeds in a cold or warm room, w/without light? What’s your secret?? Haha! ☺️ Last year I didn’t sow any lavender seeds but I did plant 6 cuttings from my outdoor “Grosso” Lavender plant & 2 out of 6 plants made it through & I was stoked! Haha I was just grateful to get anything from it!! “Any success, no matter how small, is still a success!” ☝️🤓

@kypie8 I just used dollar tree lavender true seeds and put them in my indoor soil mix (made sure it was already nice and moist) and put them under the #growlight I have set up in the kitchen (sadly no windows in this apartment kitchen). I water at least once a day with a spray bottle and I would say the water I first used was luke-warm or room temperature. Distilled :) and I planted them at night. Oh and I made sure to mix a little bit of worm castings into the soil mix.

@rosechilders101 Awesome, thank you for all the great info!! 🙏 I think my problem may have been overwatering. Same thing when I tried starting my strawberry seeds. Using a spray bottle is a great idea! It would probably keep me from drowning everything! 🌊 Haha 😆!
