    Ok,the N.ventricosa redxgreen seed I got from Steve have sprouted and I have 7 seedlings each in 2 drained trays of lfs in ziplock bags. They are at the end of a twin tube shoplight fixture and are 2in. below the bulbs. What should I do now? Shoul I puncture the bag?,or unzip it some to allow air circulation?

    Thank-you,
    Noah.

    I think puncturing the bag one hole at a time would be acclimating very carefully and okay....
    Hopefully somebody else will chime in.

    I use little plastic boxes but I have had good acclimating of plants with 1 needle hole every 3rd day. You must remember a needle hole in such a small area is like a window in a house, it is very capable of moving air throughout. I think acclimation is where most seed growing fails.

    Heck, when my seeds germinated in their partially (80%) covered tray, I just made them 50% covered for a few days, then 30% covered, now they're uncovered. Took me about 8 or 10 days to go through the motions. I have dozens of seedlings growing like mad....and that's AFTER giving several away...
