The Q&A Archives: Seed starting

Question: I have started tomato plants indoors. The seeds have sprouted and are 3 in. tall. How do I take care of them now?

Answer: Keep the light source only 2 inches above the tops of the plants to encourage sturdy seedlings, fertilize with a half strength dilution of liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks and keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Your transplant should be ready to go into the garden in about 4 weeks. Good luck with your plants!
