Think I will try a few more herbs tommorow and see what luck I have

I have also moved my current starts closer to the lights to see if this helps any.

I will try to post some picks of my starts around 8 cst tonight just have things to do at the moment

:)

any answers on my last question about the 3 soil components I have and what percentages to try\
thanks

did you start the seeds in there? that was a seed starting mix as this is the seed starting forum and seed starting thread.
No.

I thought my reply might come back and bite me in the butt. Touche!

as you can see there is a green moss/algee and the seedlings are still small (Maybe I am expecting to much to fast) these where planted 12/21/2010 so they are about 3 weeks old now

any advice is appreciated

Too wet!! They need to dry out some asap. Try not to let them dry out completely, but they defiantly need a break from the water.

ok less water!!! what about the moss/algee should I lightly scrape the surface and remove it?

next question

about how big should they be before I pot them up?

thanks

The moss will more than likely not bother, I'd leave that alone. I pot mine up when they have 2-4 true leaves depending on plant size and they are a couple inches tall.
