How do I look after my Soil Block Seedlings?
Soil Block Seedlings drying out If you find that your Soil Block Seedlings are drying out, you can try soaking them.
Step 1 - Fill the bottom of the trays with water until the water covers 1/2 of the height of the blocks. Step 2 - Let the Soil Blocks soak up all the water they can. Step 3 - Depending on how dry the Soil Blocks are, you may have to repeat Step 1 two or three times. Step 4 - When the Soil Blocks do not soak up any more water (i.e. the water in the tray is still visible after 10 minutes), carefully pour the rest of water out.
Going away or Really hot dry days
Give your Soil Block Seedlings a good soaking as listed from Step 1 to Step 4 above.
Step 5 - Leave water in the tray 1/4 the height of the Soil Blocks so the Soil Block Seedlings are sitting in water. Algae may grow on the top of the Soil Blocks, but they won't harm the seedlings.
