Default First timer from seed

Started peppers on Mar 20 and on Mar 26 they were sprouted. Started tomatoes on Apr 1st and on Apr 4th they were sprouted.

These have all been growing under LED in my basement.

This is the 5th time I have had them out doors. Put them in direct sun this weekend for a few hours. I think they are doing quite well. I've learned so much from this site. I look to get these in my grow bags using the RGGS in two weeks.

Wow you get an A+ on your first time out. Those plants are just gorgeous. Lush and stocky. Don't be changing a thing next year. You have got it down pat.

Be proud!

Thanks all

eyegrotom - the pots are the 247 1/4 gal transplanter grow bags. I bought 30 of them to try. About .84 each. Yah - much more expensive than any plastic cups but I saw them and couldn't resist trying them! They have velcro down the side to ease in getting the plant out of the bag. We'll see how it goes in a couple weeks.

I could not have got this far without all the help from the kind folks on this site.

Love the bags


I tried fabric pots a few years back that I made from pond underlayment, the seedlings loved it but the roots grew into the fabric bag, so be careful when they start putting out a lot of roots.


Keep us posted I'm curious about the roots.
