As a new indoor gardener, I want to try all the tricks I see for growing herbs and small vegetables from seed. I have some growing in peat pellets, some in burpee soil pellets, and I'm doing some tomato and pepper plants in coffee filters moistened and placed in bags.
My question is: according to my research seeds sown in paper towel or coffee filters need to be kept pretty warm to induce germination. The closet I keep my herb growing set up sets at about 72-74 degrees all day. For peppers they recommend almost 80 degrees. I have a heat vent that is on the floor in a similar spot. What are some opinions of me taping the filter sown seeds to the vent so that they get direct warm temperature. Or will the flux of hot and no hot be more of a negative then just placing them in the 72 degree room and hoping that's warm enough??
Thank you for your opinions!
