Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Any advice for keeping my seedlings alive! Various flower seeds i dried myself, so far salvia splendens, sweet pea, carnations, yellow cosmos and a couple of unknown wild local flowers have sprouted! Im so happy but worried! Avg. temp here in Rio during May is Max - 27°C / 81°F Min - 21°C / 70°F.
I am wondering if i should leave them in full sun late in the afternoon (its very mild compared to the summer) and if watering just once - from below at night is sufficient? Also should i cover at night?
Any specific tips on watering, light, sun, temperature etc. would be greatly appreciated as i they are my first and v precious to me!!
Many thanks and good gardening
ps. Also, i was told to feed seedlings after 6 weeks - does this count for all types? How is 10-10-10? Perhaps too potent? THANKS again
