|I just purchased a humidity dome seed starter (Fiber Grow brand) to get my vegetable garden started inside within the next few weeks. I've never used one before and was looking at the instructions, it doesn't say anything about watering or misting. I was wondering if this is because watering should be implied or if the initial water used with the coconut fiber pellets would create a kind of self reliable humidifying environment once the dome is in place. If anyone has used one of these before, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much.

|I believe to purpose of the dome is to retain the water you add at the start so no further watering is needed.

|Welcome to NGA, @Derrikechev !
You'll need to add enough water initially to thoroughly expand the peat pellets; then plant your seeds and top off with the humidity dome. Once the seedlings are up, remove the "dome" and let them have some air or you will likely have problems with damping off and such. The humidity domes are mainly for keeping things moist while the seeds germinate.
