I am startig my seeds inside in containers. I have a Dome I purchased, but have not started using it. I also have some milk cartons and other plastic things I am using. Things are starting to sprout and I am doing some reading. I have some questions.
Dampening off - should I just watch how I water, or do you recommend treating the container, the soil mix - I have seen articles about putting soil in the oven, I really do not want to go there. Should I only mist lightly the plants & soil. Also other articles say when they get their first two leaves, to remove the cover from the tray, what if some haven't gotten to that point, they all seem to be growing at different levels. Also those leaves are not their TRUE leaves - correct The books mention True leaves and then they are ready to be removed from the tray or container into something larger or go outdoors.
You can see, I have never grown seeds indoors. I guess I just need some basic advice. If I use a tray with 20 slots, is it wrong to plant different plant seeds in the tray together. Should it be all the same type of plant. The house and the room they are in are about 70 degrees. I do have a heating mat under them on low. I appreciate any advice. I do not have a large garden - so I do not want 20 tomato plants. I was hoping to do several different plants in the tray - but not sure. Thanks again!
I also apolgize in advance, I know I have a tendancy to drone on forever. Just be glad you are not here in person - I am a regular chatterbox
