Soak Okra Seeds Before Planting

If anyone is having problems getting okra seeds to grow, try soaking them in pure bleach overnight. The next day don't wash off the bleach and plant them as usual. My dad planted some four days ago he'd soaked in bleach and they're already up and 3 inches tall.

To quick start your okra seeds, soak them overnight before you plant them. They will sprout much sooner.
