seedlings coming through at different rates - advice?

Posted: 22/03/2014 at 10:43

Hi Dove

i have them on a west facing, huge window. its the best spot they can be in. only thing that might have let them down a little is maybe staying in the propogator too long, with the lid having lots of condensation it would have been a little darker in there.

fingers crossed they make it through!

at what point do i thin them out, or is that not til they are potted on ?

Hi Dove

hmm, im not sure it would be quite fiddly. the module tray is 40 cell one piece. i could possibly cut it so i have 4x 10 cell pieces?

Hi

so, this sunday just passed i sewn a small number of seeds, splitting 2x 40 cell modules into 8x10 so each plant has 10 modules. this is my first seed sowing experiment, and i noticed this morning already that the tagetes, calendula, lettuce, and aubretia have come up - with 2 leaves. however, the tomato seeds and parsley have yet to surface - so now with a mix of seed types in the same propogator, im not sure whether to open the vent or not - there is still lots of condensation within the propogator. probably wasn't the best idea to sow them separately! but oh well you live and learn ...

so anyway, im not sure what the best thing to do is? let some air in? leave them for a while longer? it has only been 5 days.
