It really is amazing how fast seeds sprout when using a bio-dome on top of a heat mat.
Really, I don’t make any money from promoting bio-domes, I just really love them for seed propagation.
Below is an example of a dome planted with seeds (Melon, Cucumer, Summer and Winter Squash) late on Friday night. This photo was taken Tuesday morning. 3 1/2 days to emerge. Not bad! The heat mat of course is crucial for the speed of germination.
I had the heat set to 80°.
Meanwhile, outdoors in the Earthboxes the greens are coming along nicely. These photos were also taken on Tuesday (April 9)
