Set the pots in an aquarium (rainwater is touted as giving the best results) and use the aquarium heater to ensure the water temperature is kept between 15-20C. (72F)
The waterlevel should be kept within an inch of the top of the pot (pot submerged an inch).
Germination should be within 30 days.
The plants will grow very quickly in this heated water.
Grow until they have several true leaves and then transplant outdoors.
It is much easier to grow one or two seeds in a pot rather than transplant or try to thin out seedlings.
