So I started seed germinating about two weeks ago, and the problem is, when I put soil in cups and try to germinate the seeds in there, the soil is too moist and the seeds wilt right after they germinate. On the other hand when I germinate them outside, because the sun where I live is really strong, the seeds seem to become bent inside and start to wilt. What I think the problem is that the soil is too condensed, I use perlite, but it seems like it's not even helping. Should I use more (I use a lot), or should I use a different soil, or what should do? Also, I'm germinating seeds in full compost with perlite, no other soil mixed in but the compost.
Thanks in advanced.
