I would like to know what are the requirements needed to germinate seeds for xiao bai cai, kangkong and eggplant?

These 3 germinate easily if the seeds are fresh or less than 6 months old. Use seed sowing potting mix or any moisture retentive potting mix.

Xiao bai cai - sprinkle seeds on soil surface
kangkong - sow seeds at 0.5cm depth
eggplant - place seeds on soil surface & lightly cover with a thin layer of soil

Put the seed sowing tray somewhere that gets bright natural light. Mist the potting mix frequently to ensure the potting mix doesn't dry out.

My xiao bai cai germinated within 3 days. I cover it with cling wrap so it won't dry out.
