Got Seedlings!!!! Now What.

Got Seedlings!!!! Now What.

Post  scmelik on 3/22/2011, 10:16 pm

It didn't take near as long as I thought it would but after planting seeds on Sunday I have seedlings!!! Now here is the issue and I am not sure exactly what I should do so I was hoping you all could help me out a bit. I am using a plastic greenhouse with peat pellets. There are roughly 20 pellets in this greenhouse but only 4 or 5 of them have sprouted. The directions on the package say when the plants have sprouted to put them into the sunlight and crack the lid.

My question is should I wait until every pellet has sprouted before I move them to the sun or should I do it now since I have a few that have sprouted?

My Magic 8-Ball says: Leave them where they are for now. Crack lid/move when you're around 80-90% sprouted. Shouldn't take long. Congrats!! (Opposing comments, anyone?)

Are they getting any light? I scooped mine out as soon as they sprouted and potted them up individually so that I could put them in the windowsill and they could get light. If I didn't they shot up searching for the sun. But I'm not sure how other people do it.

as of right now they are getting no light per the directions on the box. It says to leave the plants out of the sunlight until sprouted then move them to the sun for a few hours a day.
