Hello, I am trying to grow Lavender from seeds. I have put them into a tray and now I have shoots but I don't know when they are going to be ready to leave the lid off or to put them into trays. Right now they are very small, thin shoots that don't look strong at all but I'm worried that keeping them in the propagator with the lid on may stunt their growth!
(This is the first time I have ever tried to grow anything, hence being absolutely clueless) Thank you!

On plant Lavandula angustifolia



If the majority have sprouted, you can take the lid off. When they have some true leaves, then you can transplant to larger vases. When the roots look like they are going to come out the bottom, put them in the ground. It will help when they are a little bigger to put them outside during the day.
