Germinating Seeds

I took 100 Nigella seeds.

I separated 25 seeds into each bowl.

I put the seeds on 4 damp paper towels.

I wetted them some more.

Now I wait for the seeds to germinate.

Wikipedia: Nigella sativa is an annual flowering plant, native to south and southwest Asia. It grows to 12 inches tall, with finely divided, linear leaves. The flowers are delicate, and usually colored pale blue and white, with five to ten petals. The fruit is a large and inflated capsule composed of three to seven united follicles, each containing numerous seeds. The seed is used as a spice (Kalonji).
