Propogator lid

When do we remove the lid? Is it as soon as the seedlings start to appear?

    what are  you growing? some seeds are best uncovered during the warmer part of the day , but still covered in the chilly nights

  • Hello Hostafan1. I'm growing flower seeds. Aquelegia, snapdragons, delphiniums, achillea image

    When the seeds appeared I gradually turned the dial on the top to decrease the condensation.  When the condensation had gone I removed the lid and left them to grow on until the first pair of proper leaves.  I watered from the bottom not the top.

    unless it's really frost by day, I'd only have it on at night .
