    Works Good.
    i put a couple of black five gallon buckets filled with water in the corners. during the day they absorb a lot of heat and release it slowly at night. dark collered rocks work good also. the most important part is to have most of the coldframe below ground level. the ground is a good insulator. you need good drainage in the area to make it work good.

    Thanks everyone for the information. After germination, what is the lowest temperature the plants can handle prior to transplanting?

    Re: Seed Starting: A Beginner's Attempt

    Hello.

    Sorry I'm riding on another post, I did not want to open one in particular.

    I start 6 days ago. the seeds start to germinate.

    Until now, the tray was covered with a plastic bag. No lighting over, just in house - 72 Fahrenheit. spraying every day.

    What should i do next? should i take off the plastic bag?
    should i put it close to a window?

    Thanks!

    The plastic is used to keep the top of the soil from drying out, the roots aren't more than a few mm deep. Now that you have some green showing, they need some Sunlight and enough ventilation to not cook them. Don't let them dry out too much. As the roots get deeper, the soil won't need to be so moist.

    Thank you!
    I'll wait a day or two and put it near a window without any lid.
    because i see that not all the seeds germinated yet.
