I have some pepper seedlings just starting to come up indoors, sprouting in trays on a medical heating pad. I know that soon they'll need light, but won't be ready for cold. I'm thinking about putting them outside in a mini-greenhouse during the day so they can have both light and some warmth. Outside temperature will probably vary between 40 and 60 for the next month or so but should be warmer in this cheapo contraption. Can anybody see any flaws in this?
Also, I'm figuring since the seedlings are now growing in those little Jiffy peat pellet things, they'll need to move up to a real pot some time between now and when they're set out (probably around May 1). Any idea on the timing of the uppotting? Should I just wait until the seedlings really need a bigger pot or replant them as soon as they can take it? I'll probably just put them in jumbo pony pack containers.
Thanks in advance.
