- The temperature (depending on the plant of course) needs to be between 60-70 degrees with a preferable 10 degree drop. This helps speed the germination process.
- Lighting, Florescent lightbulbs that are made to replicate sunlight.
- Space, a nice space for your seedlings where humidity isn't a problem.
- Some method of airflow, this allows the seedlings to build strong stems, as well as it helps to prevent damping off.
The Fun Part:
Planting the seeds!!
Follow the directions on the back of the seed packet ( Very Important!..unfortunately I didn't do this for my parsnips, and assumed the directions would be the same as carrots. As it turns out the Parsnips need a longer cold period, and I might not be able to grow them to their full potential now.)
Watch them grow...and good luck!!
