My translation of a local gardening newspaper:

The soil mix needs to be slightly moist; however too wet a soil would rot the seeds.

It is implied all seeds are somewhat susceptible.

I attempt to keep the soil soaked about 30% of the time and have observed no severe failures.

  • Need the seedling pots be turned into a permanent swamp to kill the seeds?
  • Do all seeds react equally? Large seeds like acorns and chestnuts require additional treatment; instead my question is strictly about the quote from the newspaper.
  • What kind of seed?
