What a cool and ingenious way to sprout seeds!

The baggie method is great but sometimes my seeds would get moldy so thought to use this method and I am so glad it works. Thank you, Joseph!

At first sight I wondered what a interesting plant is that? What is it you use to germinate seeds in? Is it what florists use for making a flower arrangement? I don't know the English/American word for it. We call it 'steekschuim'. You have to soak it in water an after that you can stick in the flowers etcetera.
Thanks for showing me,

You are correct. It is the foam the florist use for their arrangements. Water absorbent floral foam or wet foam for short. ^_^ You're Welcome!
