Just wanting to share the picture of my cilantro seed germinating with Deno/baggy method... It is so nice when you can actually see the roots coming out of seeds :)

I am very pleased with that method too. I have germinated about 4 kinds of hollyhocks, Blue Bedder salvia, delphiniums, and a couple other things this summer. I believe they will bloom next year. One thing
that I like is that I can remove each germinated seed and put it into one
of my shoe box containers filled with no-soil potting mix. I can put
them in rows far enough apart to keep them there for a while. I can either move the box outside in dappled shade or keep them under the lights until they get a little bigger. But if I forget to check every single day, I can lose a lot of little germinated seeds which rot right away.
