Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the bottom.
Fill the cells with a moist coco-peat medium.
Sow 2 – 3 brinjal seeds per cell. Brinjal seeds are very small, avoid sowing them in very deep.
Place seeds on the surface of the medium and push them inside using a pencil tip, so that the seeds are immersed deep enough to be covered by the coco – peat medium.
Alternately, you can also make shallow depressions in the medium using a pencil’s bottom, put seeds in these depressions and sprinkle coco – peat on top of them to cover the seeds.
Keep the seedling tray indoors till the seeds germinate.
In the first week, water the seeds using a spoon. Two tablespoons of water everyday is enough.
You can also keep the seedling tray in another tray full of water for half an hour, so that seed cells will absorb the water from the bottom, via drainage holes.
If seed beds are made outdoors, protect it from rainfall and harsh direct sunlight. Cover the bed by making a temporary roof of the plastic sheet. Water it in the form of a light shower by watering can.
