Seedlings are starting to come up. Is setting them outside to hot (currently 90-100)? they will be in the shade getting indirect light.

They can go outside, but make sure they are shaded most of the day in the beginning. Don't let them dry out. In your hot area they may need watering daily depending on the size of the pot and type of soil.

Thanks. Will set them up on automatic watering system with liquid plat food just in case.

Ok, make sure the plant food is diluted. Most recommendations are to use way too much. I cut it down to 1/4th to 1/2 the recommended dose. Good luck!
