  • Starting Seeds Indoors, Successfully: Water World - The Westside Gardener
    problem by using chemical fungicides Some gardeners believe they need to use these as well but I hope to convince you otherwise Many gardeners believe seeds need to be kept soaking wet in order to come up so they create mini bogs in their seed starting trays In this environment fungi thrives the seeds do germinate but then damp off and the gardener decides to address the symptom instead of the cause Seeds need less water to germinate successfully than you may realize For comparison with our hypothetical friend here s my general watering practice when starting seeds indoors Once the seeds are potted up and ready to go I set the whole group of pots in a tray of water This allows the soil to soak it up without compacting the surface I leave the pots in the water until the surface of the soil is damp the time this takes can vary widely since it depends on the composition of the potting medium and how dry it was in the first place At that point I lift the pots out of the water and let them drain for 20 30 minutes this is much easier if you have some sort of perforated tray to support the pots Finally I cover all the pots loosely with a clear plastic lid set them under the lights and don t water them again There are of course exceptions to the rule Some seeds take weeks to germinate and those do need to be watered every so often to prevent them from drying out completely With others such as petunias which sit near the surface and seem to be extremely prone to damping off my preferred method is to water them as discussed above not cover them at all so air can
