To speed the germination of the parsley seeds, soak them in warm water for 24 hours. Parsley has a pretty long taproot, so I don't know what it will do on a chia "sponge." Maybe it needs soil.
Growing parsley from seed can take up to 8 weeks before the seedling is ready to be planted out.

"maybe it needs soil" - i was thinking that might be the case, cuz then i could cover them with a little soil instead of plastic, like the directions say. they might breathe easier and the mold would have less of a chance to survive. what kind of soil do they need? i have a little potting soil...
I havent' done much research on parsley, but one person said they don't work well in a pot, i'm guessing cuz of the long taproot. so u know anything about that? or how big of a pot i should put it in if i wanted to try it indoors?
thanx!

Well, as I said, they have a long taproot, so a deep pot would do. Any kind of potting soil would work. I just plant mine directly in the yard. They don't much like being transplanted unless they are small.
