The first step is to create the seed bed by filling your trays with the growing medium of your choice. Most growers have discovered that 1 to 1-1/2 inches of soil should be enough to fill the trays.
Similar to how you would season a dish in the kitchen, take a small pinch of seeds with your fingertips and sprinkle them over your tray. Give the seeds plenty of time to cover the entire tray evenly.
- Covering With Soil (Requires a Sifter) - Covering With Towels (Allows Peeking) - Uncovered Seeds (Careful With Direct Sunlight)
Set your sprayer to a light or medium shower setting to wet the entire tray evenly. As long as your seeds are not submerged under water, preliminary watering is the only stage at which overwatering is not a problem.
