Hi GG,


I have sown tomato seeds in a seed tray and 2 out of 4 seeds have germinated in cocopeat.I can see small white hook appearing.I have covered the tray with plastic cover.should i keep it covered till the true leaves appear or i should put them in sunlight now.

I have planted chillie seeds also ,but they have not germinated yet. should i keep the cover on still?

You can remove the cover if you see seedlings germinating. True leaves may take some time to show up.


The cover is to keep the media moist and humid. Once you remove the cover, ensure you don't leave the media to dry out and at the same time, don't make it too wet..
