    After 12 weeks, it is time to give the seeds a germinating signal. Take out the Ziploc baggie from the refrigerator and open it to ensure that the paper towel is still moist. If the paper towel is not moist, sprinkle few drops of water as before. Seal the baggie once more and store it in a place where the temperature is 85 to 95 degree Fahrenheit for two consecutive days.
