What is the optimum internal temperature for growing seeds inside a heated propogator ?



I keep the temperature around 18/21c (64/70f) and they seem to do well but also be aware that the temperature can differ greatly from different seeds so also check the packet

I agree - do read the instructions on the packet, but mine is set at 18 degrees. Remember that some seeds don't like heat at all!

Thanks for that, I didnt realise they required so much heat.
I was guessing around 50F
