If you’re planning on gardening inside, the first thing you should consider is an adequate light source. Ideally, these plants should be kept in a room that offers natural light from a window or glass door. If you cannot achieve success merely through plant selection, consider using artificial light sources.

When your seeds sprout, they will not be in need of the warmth they needed to germinate. Sprouting plants can be removed from the heat source. Take any plastic film off of your containers because they hold in heat and humidity. Watch the seeds so you can know when you do this.
