I've been putting off writing about this as I've yet to gather more documentation on my progress. Now, I think I have enough pictures, but I still have a long way to go before successfully raising a fully mature and fruit-bearing plant.
All these being said, allow me to narrate my journey on raising my first plant from seed: the tomato plant.
Day 1: Plant your seeds
You can by seeds in hardware stores (by the gardening section); there are supermarkets that have a section for seeds within the vegetable area. I was too lazy for those, so I resorted to removing seeds from a bunch of tomatoes I bought in the grocery and started planting them on a container.

I've also tried planting them on a
DIY self-watering planter made from a Coke Zero bottle.
In retrospect, I should've planted the seeds in a proper seed starter tray (or DIY using an egg carton) so I have better control in spacing the seeds in preparation for sprouting. Needless to say, it is possible for even the most average of tomato seeds to germinate, given the right conditions.
