Okay, so I planted my tomato seeds 6 days ago, and this is what they look like now:
I forgot to check on them before now. They should have been put into the light as soon as they emerged. Now they’re really leggy! I also put too much water in the containers. They need to stay moist, but not sopping wet (like mine are).
As for my experiment, the tray I placed on top of the fridge out of sunlight (shown on left) did much better than the tray I placed in the windowsill (shown on right). I guess it is better that they germinate in a warm, dark place. (I just like to test these things out for myself!)
So now, I’m not sure what to do since my window doesn’t get enough sunlight and I don’t have growing lights. I put them outside in the sunshine today. I hope that doesn’t hurt them; it’s really the only way to get them good light.
I really want them to do well. If anyone has any experience growing tomatoes from seeds, please don’t just sit there and laugh at my feeble attempts… help a girl out! If you see that I’m not doing something that I should be doing, please let me know.
