How do you germinate cucumber seeds indoors? Fold seeds into a dry paper towel. Soak the folded paper towel in water and place in a glass. Cover tightly with cellophane and place on a sunny window sill. After 4 days, they sprouted nicely and are ready for planting.
Should you start cucumber seeds indoors? Cucumbers are easy to grow indoors and started them 4-6 weeks before May 7 will give a convenient jump start to the season. Plant the seeds about a half inch deep in 3” pots. I recommend only planting 1-2 seeds per pot as they grow quickly. The best soil to use is high quality compost.
Do you need to soak cucumber seeds before planting? Cucumber seeds normally sprout fine without soaking. However, if you want a quick germination process, soak the seeds before planting. After seed soaking, plant the seeds in a full sun area in well-draining soil.
When should I start my cucumber seeds? Starting your seeds two or three weeks before the last frost gives your cucumber plants time to grow and develop indoors. It also ensures that they’ll be old enough to transplant at around the time you would typically begin planting your cucumbers.
