Today I put in a germination pot the 10 Stevia seeds.

As you can see these are some small seeds. To sow them I just    dip a toothpick in some water and touch the seed. The seed will stick to the toothpick. Then place the seed in the mixture. The seed packet says to stratify the seed. What that means is to fool the seed into thinking it's been through winter. Something that none of us Minnesotans would ever need. So after sowing the seeds and moistening them, I placed them in a ziplock and put them in the back of the refrigerator. It's also a good idea to mention to your spouse what the heck it is in the back of the refrigerator. You wouldn't want it to end up in the soup. Stevia has an interesting past, if you'd like more information this is a pretty good link.
