Next pansies. I told myself I wouldn't but I've been thinking about what worked when I first started pansies several years ago. How could I forget? I remembered that they grew in a window. Never became leggy and I had tons of seedlings. So I think I'll try that again. After they germinate, I'll put them in the bedroom window where they'll get lots of light. Light is not the key although important. The most important thing is that the window is cooler than sitting on a plant stand under lights.
When my daughter was in college, I started my first seedling in her window. Everything did well. Many people write that seedlings will get leggy and not get enough light on a windowsill, but people have been doing this a long time. Shop lights and plant stands were not always the rage. My daughter's room was cooler and the cool air radiates from the window pane. The problem will be, remembering that I have them in the spare bedroom which I rarely enter unless going in to get something stored there. That's a plan for tomorrow. Maybe taping a sign on the outside of the door will remind me to water them. I'll use the seeds I have and not order anything new. Hope there's time tomorrow to start them.
