Moving seedlings from one location to another

How to Transplant

You will need: A grow lab (A set-up with florescent bulbs that enable you to begin growing plants indoors).

  • Begin by looking on the back of the seed package to know when to begin the transplanting process and other instructions.

  • Give the plant sufficient water and soil.

  • Make sure the light fixture is 2” above the top of the plant throughout the growing process

  • Keep the grow lab light on for 15-18 hours a day

  • “Harden off” the plant before transplanting outside.

    **Consider using “grow bulbs”

    to increase the quality of light**

Transplanting Outdoors— before moving plants to the garden, gradually increase the amount of time you leave them outdoors. This is known as “hardening them off”. Do this for about 7-10 days (each day increasing the time left outside).

Transplanting indoors— seedlings must have reached the 3rd leaf stage or large enough to handle easily to be transplanted

  • When you replant the seedlings, they must be 1-2’’ apart and 1’’ deep so they can grow properly

  • Put them in a new pot/container with a hole in the bottom for drainage

  • Fill in the hole with soil where you planted the seedling (making sure to press down the soil around it). Water it thoroughly

    * If growing your plants on a windowsill, shade them from direct sunlight for 2 days to prevent wilting

  • Repeat “Step 1” for planting outdoors

  • Water the plant generously

  • If there are windy conditions, shield the plant with vertically placed wooden boards

    *Wilting may occur; however, once the plant adjusts, it will begin to grow.
