Watering techniques

I have quite a few seedlings in my propagator that I have recently pricked out; some are in tiny little cells which dry out really quickly so I put them on little trays of water so they get their moisture from the bottom up and thought 'Aha, problem sorted!' However, I've been thinking is it ok to leave them in these water trays all the time or would they just end up waterlogged?

    unless you put just enough water for them to soak up, then yes, they'll end up waterlogged and dead.

    Eeeep image! In that case I'd better go rescue them, poor things - and thanks Tetley, that sounds like a very good idea imageimage
