Answer: It is confusing isn't it? The set of instructions that tell you to keep the tray out of direct sunlight may have been referring to the fact that that kind of seed likes germination temperatures a little lower than that which ordinary sunlight provides. If there are no other instructions, you can make the assumption that 70-75 degrees (warm!) is an appropriate temperature for germination....or sunlight through a window!
