New to using a propagator and thought I would give it a practice run last night with some sweetpeas.
The bit I`m confused on is how much to water the container.
I`m using a garland super 7 heating prop
I filled half of 1 container with seed compost, then soaked it and let it sit in the sink to drain, I then firmed it down with kitchen towel to soak any excess.
I then filled 1/2 the remaing container with dry compost, put 8 seeds on, then covered with more dry compost. Adding a thin scattering of vermiculite on top. I then used a spray bottle to lightly moisten the surface.
Lids on, and covered with tea towel (read that sweetpeas need dark for 2-3 days)
Couple of questions
Did I do it right ?
If not what should I change ?
going forward how often do I water ?
