Cardboard greenhouse seems to be working. Except for eggplant and pepper, other veggies sprouted well. Ideally I should have waited for true leaves to appear before I blog on update. But I could not resist the temptation once I clicked a couple of pictures.
Vegetable %Germination Day(s)
Tomatoes 100% 5 days
Cucumber 20% 5 days [seeds were more than two years old]
Lady's Finger 100% 3 days
Brinjal (egg plant) 0% 9 days so far
Pepper 0% 9 days so far
French Beans 100% 3 days
Cauliflower 80% 7 days
Broccoli 100% 6 days
Coriander 0% 4 days so far
Broccoli (after 9 days)
French Beans (after 9 days)
Coriander breathing inside the dome. Yet to show up.
So far I have watered the seedlings only twice. Coco-peat and newspaper are holding the moisture.
