How to Start Seeds for Your Garden Indoors

Watering seedlings in containers

Step 4: Water Seedlings in Containers

Water seedlings very gently using room temperature water. It’s best to water from the bottom, or use a very light spray that won’t beat down the seedlings. Pour any excess water out of the reservoir tray as soon as the soil is moist.

  1. I enjoyed the article, “How to start vegetable seeds indoors”. I have several fluorescent lights in my house that I thought I would use but you do mention that you need full-spectrum (daylight) bulbs. I take it, these bulbs are different that everyday fluorescent bulbs and to be effective the full-spectrum bulbs are necessary.

    Thanks,
