Question: sowing tomatoes
I have sown the tomatoes that I hope to eat this summer but I have some problems ... the seeds have germinated very quickly but after about 10 days the seedling with the two cotyledons "collapses" on itself and in a few hours dies.
the plants are at home at a temperature of about 20 degrees exposed to the sun as much as possible. what can I do to save the remaining plants? thanks!
Answer: sowing tomatoes
Plant sowing is a fun and enjoyable practice, which allows us to obtain new plants without a large economic outlay. To be able to sow effectively, it is however necessary to know a little better the plants that we are going to sow; consider that in nature tomatoes germinate outdoors, in early spring.
So in order to develop your plants they need a cool climate, with minimum temperatures around 12-15 ° C, and practically equal maximums; they love well-lit positions, even sunny ones if they have good humidity; they need the humidity that characterizes the garden in spring.
So usually tomato seedlings are prepared in a greenhouse or in a slightly heated seedbed, but not in an apartment, where the climate is too hot and extremely dry.
Your plants are certainly suffering from the very dry air present, you can try to save them by vaporizing them often, but avoiding to keep the soil of the seedbed always soaked with water. So water it only when the ground tends to dry but a couple of times a day vpaorizzale with a nebulizer.
If you have any seeds left, try repeating the sowing in a protected place, but outdoors, when the minimum temperatures are above 10 ° C.
Tomato sowing is a simple and affordable practice for everyone. At nurseries it is possible to buy seedlings already ready for planting; sometimes, however, we wish to produce them independently. The reasons can be many: if we have a large extension to cover we will have a great economic saving. Moreover we will be able to choose ancient varieties or with particular characteristics, whose seeds are easily available by correspondence. It is also undeniable that it is a great satisfaction to be responsible for our crops from birth to harvesting the fruit.
The tomato can be sown in a seedbed, covered, or directly in the ground. Almost throughout Italy the first option is the preferred one as it allows to anticipate the cultivation and, due to the slow growth varieties, to be able to finish the vegetative cycle before the arrival of the cold. The first jars can be prepared already in February-March.
Sowing in the open field should be considered if we live in the southern regions or if we want to obtain germination in May / June for areas that will be covered by greenhouses when autumn arrives.
The time window in which to carry out this last processing goes from April (South) to June (Center-North).
