Is plastic cover still needed after germination - Keffir Lime

Bee_beeApril 10, 2014


I managed to get some keffir lime seeds to germinate, now they are growing at least one set of leaves each. Should I continue covering the pots with plastic/transparent container to maintain moisture? or better take them off? I've moved them to a an area outdoor with indirect sunlight today.

Thank you very much

Uncover, remove it and leave it off. Not even required for germination but potentially harmful after germination.
