Seedlings need stimulus. One of the main issues with growing inside is that they don’t get of it

It is one of the reasons why you strike your seedlings.

Ahhh, do you think that's what happened to yours *******? My instinct would definitely be to pat it down neatly

10/05/2021, 18:30
What is strike?

Outside there would be rain and wind, little birds would knock them about. Bumblebees might sit in the seedlings

Stroke^ sorry πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Wait, do you actually want us to _stroke_ our seedlings?

10/05/2021, 18:31
Too cute

10/05/2021, 18:31
I was about to go slap them

I’d rather stroke them

10/05/2021, 18:31
Anyway all sorts of things would knock the seedlings about. And we now know that all this stimuli does wonders to the roots

Welcome to the network and yes...stinging is an issue

10/05/2021, 18:33
It makes them grow stronger, send out more exudates (more them later) and generally grow mightier

10/05/2021, 18:33
So whisper to your seedlings, blow on them, stroke them and give them some rain to toughen up whenever you can.

I always blow on my seedlings
