Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.

require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
