Germination to transplant time?
When you germinate seeds, how long should I leave them in the propagation trays before I move them to their permanent home. My name is Jeffrey, I just recently got into hydroponics.
Answer from Stella:
In order to give an exact answer, I would have to know what you are growing. This is a general answer for most plants:
When to transplant? When the plant is 2-3 inches tall, with 4 leaves, and roots start to show thru the sides of the cubes. This usually takes 1-3 weeks. Peppers and tomatoes can take up to 4 weeks.
For medical herbs, you might want to let them get 4-6 inches tall before transplanting, but they will do much better once under the bright lights.
