Q. Germinating Chia Herbs

How long does it take for these to germinate? The plastic cover caused mold growth. Will the seeds still germinate?

It is really dependent on the type of herb but normally germination occurs within week to 10 days. If mold is a problem, I would remove the plastic ceover and allow it to dry out some.

Salvia hispanica, aka chia can be grown from raw chia seeds. It is frost sensitive so is grown as an annual in most of the US. Raw seeds are found in larger groceries, specialty groceries and health food stores.
