Quick sprouting seeds

magimay(z8 New Orleans)September 6, 2004


My son wants to try to sprout seeds using fiber optic light for a science fair project. I thought that basil would be an easy/quick sprouter. Does anyone have any other suggestions? We want to get started this week. Any help would be appreciated.

By the way - we live in the deep south so it won't be getting cold around here for a long time!

Coleus is a quick sprouter with great germination rates. (Hmmm I wonder how the fiber optics would affect the colors?)
