I decided to attempt to grow some pansy seeds that I bought from Lowe's. I put 3 of the pansy seeds into a cup with my Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil and covered it with a piece of saran wrap to lock in the moisture. 7 days later I have 2 of the 3 seeds pop up! Pretty cool stuff. I haven't sprouted a seed since 2nd grade!!! I now have the cup in my closet under my 4 6500k CFL's as my practice grow until my real seeds get here.
