I have started growing radish seeds. Now after a couple of days they have grown into nice little seedlings having two big cotledons. Should I place the seedlings safety by the window or open the window pane and expose them brightly

without location we don't know how strong your sun is. Seedlings need bright light. Remember, they normally grow in full sun. Inside a window is mush dimmer. But beware with windowsill seedlings, when the sun is strong, they can heat up and dry out quickly. People who do a lot of seedlings use tube lights; they don't get hot, and give lots of light.
