Quick question for green thumbs: Do seeds (specifically, mixed kale seeds) need light to germinate? I’m starting a batch under my little growlight and wonder if I need to switch it on now or if I can wait until the first tiny bit of green emerges. The tray is in a corner with only little natural light.
Kale does NOT need light to germinate, but it is slow to germinate (can take 2 weeks) so be patient.
Warmth will speed up the germination, so if you have a warm spot to keep it in, or a heat mat, that speeds things up a bit.
