How deep were the seeds in your experimental 2 oz cups? Did you start some in the normal cups the normal way at the same time?


I had a bunch of stuck coats with my okra starts but learning about the spit trick saved many of them. I did put in a lot of time babying them. I may put the seed deeper next season, or experiment some when I get a chance.

I planted them at the same depth. I wish now I'd started some in the larger cups at the same time but I already had all the plants I needed.

I forgot to mention, I believe they sprouted a couple of days earlier than the ones in the larger cups.

A little deeper than that, maybe 1/8" or a little deeper.
