Indoor Seed Starting Info?

Post  momvet on 2/5/2017, 3:21 pm

Hi - I'm not exactly a rookie but didn't know where to post this I am about to start my tomatoes, peppers, cukes and eggplant indoors and I'm a little rusty because I skipped it last year. I got so much information from this site but don't know where to look. I just want reminders on starter mixture moisture, when to add lights, how high the lights are supposed to be, etc. I know it is here because I remember looking at pictures of everyone's beautiful setups! Can someone please point me in the right direction (I searched under seed starting but didn't find it). Thanks. Laughing

Nice article.
Yup. Wish I'd read it last year. I had to learn every one of those lessons the hard way.

Reminds me. I have to modify the light stands similar to Mr. Booker designs. Hope to get the old MM sterilized/baked tomorrow, though I won't seed the pots for another week.

Shoe Rack for Indoor Seed Starting

Post  sfg4uKim on 2/26/2017, 6:21 pm

Just wanted to share my indoor seeds starting method.

I'm blessed with a south-facing glass door. I've found that a shoe rack with every other "shelf" removed tilts the seed tray at a very good angle for starting seeds. It's on wheels so can be easily moved . . . especially when my 2 YO grandson visits.

I would love to start seeds indoors but I think my DW would kill me. I think it has something to do with me remodelling the bedrooms. What a Face
