    Aloha! I am trying to grow seeds in Hawaii on a very hot west facing lanai with crazy evening sun. You said you prefer starting seeds outdoors so I figure I can manage that here in this warmth. BUT, I am also burning some here and there…and I think I’m giving them too much water. I saw someone say you water from below the tray and they absorb the moisture from the bottom. I have managed to get a few basil and parsley seeds to sprout, but they seem to be struggling! Any help you have would be great! Thank you!!

    Now that I have sewn my seeds, how do I water it? what kind of lighting is best? Is there a follow-up video that shows your growing results? Obviously, I’m a newbie, I just want to make sure I’m doing all the right things. Thanks 🙂

    Good video man – I notice you use some of the inexpensive seed packs from American Seed. I’m curious how they are vs some of the more expensive brands.
