Each pack contains a minimum of 10 seeds. Most contain 11-12 seeds.
Step 1: Place Pafcal Bricks onto water for 1-2 minutes. At the same time, lay your Midorie frame horizontally on the table and add water till around the halfway mark of the Pafcal Base. This will help the dry Pafcal Base to absorb the water quicker, as compared to it standing vertically up.
Step 2: When the Pafcal Brick has turned a darker shade (with a slight increase in size), gently slide the seeds into the Pafcal Brick's slot (about 1-2mm) with your fingers, or any thin object. Be careful not to let the seeds drop all the way into the slot, as it will delay the germination time. If this happens, simply use a thin object to remove the seed and retry again.
Step 3: Your Pafcal base would be nicely soaked by this time. Empty any excess water from your Midorie Frame. Slot the Pafcal Bricks into the Pafcal Base and place your set at your preferred spot. Add water back into the frame with the watering bottle, and enjoy watching your seeds germinate over the next 1-2 weeks!
- The Basil varieties germinate fast - within 1 week. Plant 1 seed per Pafcal Brick.
- Parsley sprouts in around 2 weeks. Plant 3 seeds per Pafcal Brick; after 2 months, keep the best-growing seedling, and remove the other 2. This helps the remaining seedling to grow better with more space.
- The first set of 2 baby leaves are called cotyledon leaves. These leaves are already packed with nutrients, waiting to spring into action inside the seed. Feed the seedlings nutrients only after additional sets of leaves appear.
