    Re: Starting Seed Late

    Well this darn Texas heat has killed all but 1 of my sprouts. They very fragile. I couldn't start the seeds inside due to I had already had the tray with veggie seeds in it. So now I will just pout and read forums till the seed bank opens next year to request seeds.

    It's best to water from the bottom. Use the 1020 cells with a solid bottom tray. Remove one of the cells and put a couple of quarts of water in the bottom tray. The water will wick up into the cells. This helps prevent soil compaction, and encourages the roots to go down seeking water. When your seedlings are really small, it may help to have them in the shade with indirect sun light. Later, you can slowly introduce them to full sun over the course of a week or longer. This is part of the hardening off process in preparation to transplant. You would also want to cut water and fertilizer at this time to help drought proof them for several days.

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    I got the seeds to germinate good. They are in cell trays now, but they don't look like they are growing any. They are still on the two leaf sprout still. I have them outside on the covered back porch letting them get some indirect sun. I am watering from the bottom as directed. I will dig out my computer cord to upload some pics so everyone can give advice as to what I am doing right or wrong. Maybe I am just impatient.

    Seedlings grow slower them more you look at them. Ok, maybe not, but they do grow really slow. Give them a couple more weeks and they should start growing. At seedling stage most of the growth is happening underground.

    They're making roots, it will take a few weeks for the leaves to catch up. They'll do similar at transplanting, just not as extreme. By spring you'll be ahead of the game having this behind you.

    They look fine! Patience and care is all they need now. Be careful with the heat and Sun.

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    Well I got a little growth on them but I do not think they should be this small. May be the heat. Should I put them in direct sun or no? These where taken Sept. 3rdClick image for larger version.
