    Note: Pay more attention to hygienic conditions during germination. Of course, you should always wash your hands thoroughly when touching your millet seedlings. The glass should also be sterile. It is very important that no water accumulates at the bottom of the glass. This will spoil your seedlings. A smell test will help identify bad millet seedlings. Fresh germination always smells fresh.
