Starting seeds is a great way to get a jump start on the gardening season. It’s a fun and rewarding process of watching your plants grow from a tiny seed into a full-grown plant. Here are some helpful tips to get you started on your journey of starting seeds indoors.
Choose the right seeds for indoor planting. Make sure you research the type of seed you’re planting and what type of environment it requires. Some seeds do better in direct sunlight, while others may need to be sheltered from the sun.
Plant the seeds in a quality soil mix. You want the soil to be light and porous, so it can hold onto moisture, but still drain well. Make sure you choose a soil mix that’s suitable for the type of seeds you’re planting.
Water your seeds regularly. Make sure the soil is moist but not soggy. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other problems.
Provide the right amount of light. Most seeds need at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day, so make sure you place your seedlings in an area where they can get enough light.
Monitor the temperature. Make sure the temperature is between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Too much heat or too much cold can slow down the growth of your plants.
Thin out your seedlings. Once your seedlings have grown several inches, thin them out so they have enough room to grow.
