How to use Jiffy Pellets, when to water, when to remove lid, sunlight requirements, etc.

Recently I bought some bulk replacement Jiffy Peat Pellets from Amazon (https://amzn.to/2TlgF1D), but they didn?t come with instructions, and I ended up failing due to direct sunlight. Below are instructions found off of the ?Jiffy Windowsill Greenhouse? box to help anyone else in my position!

  1. Pour warm water to the bottom tray until the Jiffy Peat Pellets have expanded to around 7 times their original size. Pour off any excess water.
  2. Pull netting open on top of pellets and sow seeds or plant cuttings, cover lightly and firm down gently.
  3. Place clear lid on tray and put in a warm spot away from direct sunlight.
  4. When first seeds sprout, prop the lid open a little. Remove entirely when all seeds have germinated.
  5. Add water to the tray when the pellets start to turn light brown but don?t over-water.
  6. Gradually expose the tray to full sunlight and when plants are strong enough, plan out in the garden or container.
  7. Plant deep enough to cover all the pellet, firm down and water thoroughly.
  8. The tray and lid are reusable, all you need are replacement Jiffy Peat Pellets (e.g. 100 pack from Amazon https://amzn.to/2TlgF1D).
