Giving the seeds a drink in the tub

Seed Starts in the bathtub

 

So this was the method recommended to me to water my seedlings.  Water from the bottom rather than top water.  Let them sit for 10 min. or so, until the soil is moist, in about an inch of water.  Warrior Princess keeps asking me every time I water the plants, “Bath?”  Yes, baby, a bath for the seeds.  I guess that the idea is that this method of watering will help prevent dampening off, but I really don’t see how.  The only difference I suppose is that the plant itself doesn’t get wet.  The soil still gets moistened.  Worth a try to get seedlings that make it.  Tonight I am going to give them their first spritz of hydrogen peroxide water.  As a precaution.
