Do you want to grow asian green seeds in Michigan, but don’t know when to start them?
Whether growing indoors or in a garden, starting asian green seeds is not as easy as it seems.
- Asian Green Seeds must be consistently watered, receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, & be kept at room temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
So if you don’t consistently water them they won’t germinate. If they aren’t in a room that is at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit they won’t sprout. And if it receives 8 hours of sunlight the plant itself won’t grow.
- Because Michigan’s growing season is not long enough, asian green seeds cannot be sowed outside and should only be started indoors.
Because of this, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to start asian green seeds indoors in Michigan:

To help ensure the greatest success of your asian green seeds germinating you should:
- Use a heat mat to ensure the gardening pot remains at 70 degrees Fahrenheit

- Water your seeds with a spray bottle to ensure your seeds are not overwatered
Once your seedlings are ready, you can read how to transplant your plant HERE.
