I started a batch of seedlings outdoors on the 9th of this month. They are in cell trays with undertrays and were covered with domes until the first ones started sprouting.
I haven't done seeds this time of year before. I think something is wrong. Only a small number of them have sprouted. They don't have the covers now. Some were developing algae. They are overhead watered about every other day.
Do you think the ones that are missing will germinate more than 3 weeks later?
Note: I DID learn that they seem to like the cheap soil conditioner type of medium (pictured) better than the more expensive seed soil.
