Germinating and growing in same pot?
Hi, total newbie here to starting seeds indoors!
Can you germinate and grow seedlings in the same medium/container? Can I start my seeds in commercial seed starter mix of some sort in yogurt cups and then just grow them in it until they are ready to transplant outside?
If not- when I transplant them as seedlings when they have their first few true leaves or whatever, what do i transplant them *into,* and does that need to be sterile too? Regular potting soil? Is that sterilized? I have big bags of vermiculite, peat and compost left from last year's garden (square foot garden)- can I mix my own potting soil from those components for the little seedlings to be transplanted into indoors, or do I need something sterile?
