I need some help the these HAWAIIAN BABY WOODROSE seeds. I soak them over night after nicking them. I put them in a moist paper towel with H220. They spout well. Here is the issue. When I plant them they rot. Any ideas on how to further grow the HAWAIIAN BABY WOODROSE? What kind of soil should I use? I have been using Miracle Grow potting soil. ANY help would be great.

They must be in well draining soil, perhaps mixing half sand with half potting soil would work better. Just a guess, it is a mixture I use often for new sprouts. Don't over-water.
