Transcript:How to Start Seeds Indoors
Hi, I'm Elaine Weslowski here at Michaels Nursery in Boynton Beach, FL, for About.com and we're going to talk about how to start seeds indoors.
Items to Start Seeds Indoors
To plant seeds indoors, you'll need a few items: soil, water, a seed tray, and seeds.
If you don't have a seed tray, you can use Styrofoam cups or an egg carton.
Moisture is Important to Sprout Seeds
To get started, take your seed tray and add a little bit of soil. The second thing is put one seed per hole, put a little bit more soil over the top of it. Water very well and put it in a sunny location. Mind you, you don't want the seeds to dry out. They need moisture to germinate. One day you'll have nothing and the next day you'll see a little plant popping out of the soil. Check your seeds on a daily basis. You don't want them to dry out.
You want to lightly sprinkle with water. Make sure your watering can is on the shower spout because you don't want to drain the seeds.
