How To Start Seeds Indoors

Without Grow Lights  

 

It is possible to start healthy seedlings indoors even without grow lights.

Here’s how: 

1. Plant your seeds according to seed company’s instructions. If seeds require warmth to germinate, try putting your planted seed trays on top of the fridge. The top of fridge makes a nice flat, warm surface for seeds that are just waking up. 

2. As soon as seeds start to come up, put them by the sunniest window in your house.  

3. To increase the amount of sunlight that your seedlings get, make a wall of aluminum foil around all windowless sides of your seedlings. Open your blinds or curtains fully in the morning and keep them open until the sun goes down.
