Your Seeds Are Sprouting - Here is What They Should Look Like!

May 11, 2021

So you've sowed your seeds, do you see any sprouts yet? 

If not, don't worry.  They will sprout! 

And if they don't, you can always re-sow them. 

I have to do this from time to time as well. There are so many factors involved in germinating seeds. It's something so simple, yet can be so complex! 

When your Shimo sprouts, here is what it should look like. 

Cherry tomato seedling

Spicy Mustard Greens seedlings


Red Lettuce Blend

Jalapeno Pepper


Danvers Half Long Carrots


If your sprouts don't look like these above than reach out to me so that I can help troubleshoot what the issue is. 

Remember to keep your Shimo watered daily, and even twice daily in very hot and dry environments. If you're thirsty, your Shimo is probably thirsty too ;)

Keep growing!
