Question about seedlings and germination

AiliDeSpain(6a - Utah)January 30, 2013

I have four nine packs of onions in a dome for germination (mini greenhouse by planters pride). Some of the seeds have sprouted in each pack but not all, I would say a third have sprouted. My question is do I leave them under the dome and wait for them all to sprout or should I put them under lights now since some have sprouted? It has been six days since I started them.
Thanks in advance!

I'd probably remove the lid and simply keep them warm n moist and make sure they get plenty of light (may want to use a light bulb).

Agree. Uncover and lights now. And for future reference you'll want to check out the growing from Seed forum here. That's where all the info and FAQs about seedlings and germination are. Be sure to check out the FAQs. Lots of info on all the basic issues.

Thank you for the responses. I went ahead and uncovered and put them all under lights.

In the particular case of onion seedlings it is less important than for most veggies. They are immune to damping off and other high moisture problems.
