I've been growing some starts in this little hot-house thing I made after seeing something similar at a local gardening store. It seems to work great - with a heating pad under one of the flats it's warm, humid and plants grow like crazy.
Now I'm planning to move them outside into a greenhouse I just built. @Ecnerwal mentioned in a previous post that I need to "transition" the plants, but I'm not sure exactly what that means.
When I look up instructions for hardening off plants, they seem to be preparing plants for being put in the ground. Most instructions talk about going from ~30 min outside in light shade to a full day over the course of 7-14 days (not very specific, really), and to cut back on watering.
I'm hoping to have them in the greenhouse for 3-5 more weeks (depending on the plant) at temperatures between 40°F at night and 80-85 max during the day. I expect to be watering them regularly and hoping for them to get pretty big & stocky.
I'm wondering if someone could suggest (in detail, ideally) a good process for going from indoors to outdoors? Thanks!
