Possible seedling risks?
I lurk here a lot becuase most questions I come up with have already been answered. I am sure this one has been in some form but I havent been able to find it. My little pepper seedlings were off to a good start some just getting there first true leaves and then when I came home the other night I can tell my cats decided to make a snack out of them. Anywhere from chewed leaves to almost all the leaves missing on some that were further developed (I later found said leaves on the stairs) I know my cats are stubborn and the chances of keeping them off the table they were located on was minimal, so I have rigged up an old 30 gallon fish tank that were no longer using, i have all my seedlings in cups in there. Is there any real risk I have to watch out for? My main thoughts were that there is minimal to no air movement in there and was wondering if i was looking at an increased risk for fungus or issues along those lines. and should I line the glass with aluminum foil or anything to contain the light?
I do realize there is a risk of my cats discovering the plants and jumping into the aquarium which would just be disasterous but i think thats a risk I have to take at this point.
