Need quick help!

I started my seeds in this
But after four days, some seeds began to sprout, yet I see mildew, because it was apparently too humid and maybe I didn't give it enough sunlight? Should I put it in direct sunlight for a while? I don't want to cook the seeds, as I read the dome would do if placed in direct sunlight.

RE: Need quick help!

If the seeds have started to sprout then the dome needs to be removed. There are several discussions here about that if you have the time to do a bit of reading.;) The domes are just for germination (and aren't really even needed for that), not for growing.

Sprouted seeds need light and air, not a dome. The increased air circulation will get rid of the mold. And moving them to the lights will help IF you don't over-water.


RE: Need quick help!

I believe I read it after I posted. I tried doing a search and got overloaded with information and it didn't exactly point what I was looking for. Sorry, but thank you for the help :D
