    Not sure why The Savage Garden makes a deal about humidity - I never heard of VFT seeds needing any more humidity than other species. Perhaps it means that you should not leave the starts in an arid location where the soil will quickly dry out.
    While we're on the topic of VFT seedlings, what's better - indoors or outdoors for the first season?
    Thanks guys,

    So I'm guessing just leave them alone to grow. Keep wet, no bag.

    Absolutely correct, JM. Leave them alone, and keep them wet. The heck with the bag.

    Using a bag will encourage damping off, so avoid it.

    Is the first sign of germination a white tip on the pointier end of the seed?

    On a very wet mix of peat/perlite/vermiculite. Ocasionally I take the water level up to the surface, sometimes alittle over. 2 weeks at about 70. ? amount of days (1-5) @ 85, was out of town and returned to find my heater freaked out. Now 1 week at 75-78, still get get my houses heat any lower then that... My thermostat is set at 45....

    Humidity is 40-45%

    And they are under 160 watts of various light temp ranges.

    So about 1 month to get that far.
