STOW: Week 6

Seeds need warm soil to germinate properly – generally between 18°C and 23°C (65F-75F) is optimal for most seeds, but some require warmer temperatures, like peppers. Start seeds in a warm room with good air circulation, and if a seedling requires a little extra heat, give them a heating mat during germination (like these). Using a heating mat will also encourage your seeds to grow faster, larger, and with a deeper root system.
