To successfully germinate and grow your plants in the cold winter days, heat is required. Unfortunately, there is a lot of loss and many seeds will not germinate if the necessary heat is not present. Mainly seeds of tropical plants need this heat, such as tomatoes, peppers and melons. The required temperature for these seeds to germinate is between 15 ° C and 24 ° C.
That is why a propagator is the right solution. You can start germinating earlier, because a propagator serves as a simulation of a certain climate condition. Urban Gardening Store has different propagators in various sizes and designs. Propagators often include a plastic lid with a ventilation grille. There are also versions with a heating element at the bottom of the tray. You can choose from propagators with heating, propagators with thermostat or propagators with lighting. These options allow you to control the light, temperature and humidity. This is of course also crucial for an optimal culture.
How can I germinate seeds with a propagator?
- Choose the cutting tray with the medium on which you want to grow or pre-growth pots in which you will germinate the seeds
- Wet your medium well and poke a hole 1 centimeter deep in it
- Place a seed in each hole
- Place the tray or pots in the propagator and close the lid
- Do not place your propagator in full sun and water as needed
