How best to start seeds for an ebb and flow system?
I am trying to determine the best way to start my vegetable seeds for an ebb & flow system. I've got rapid rooter plugs and have started seeds in them before, but the seedlings ended up long and spindly. They were weak and prone to falling over after I transferred them into my system. I've heard it is best to give them light immediately, and also to keep them in the dark until they sprout. I have also heard that perhaps starting them in wet paper towel, then transplanting to rapid rooters works best. Suggestions?
