The Q&A Archives: Seed Starting In A Laundry Room

Question: I have a large number of seeds to start and I have ample space in my laundry room. Would the change in temperature and humidity from the dryer be a problem? Do you have any suggestions?

Answer: Actually, warmth and humidity would be helpful for germinating most seeds, whereas dry air blowing around would not be good for seedlings. Seedlings need about 14 hours of sunlight per day, so if your room doesn't supply that you might want to use grow lights.
