Absolutely that’s what we’re all here for. I can only go off the 1,001 mistakes I’ve made In the past and I sure wish I knew about this site then lol.
As far as domes go everyone has their own opinion. I think they are great in certain situations like clones. No domes in the wild and I find domes, especially with autos, have a higher tendency to cause damp off.
With autos all you really need for them to go from seed to sprout is a water dropper. Until I ordered from I l❤️GM I never soaked auto seeds I just potted them (no issue). 2-3 drops of water on around the sprout site everyday to every other day. I let the sprout tell me. It’s way easier to over love your plants especially when your wanting immediate results.
Ex: 2-3 drops on my new sprout today during the morning. Done. Day 2 morning Look at it (should still be good) depending on soil used. Look at night before bed see if it does or doesn’t need water. Then the next morning on day 3 of day 2 didn’t get water day 3 def a few drops. If it droop a little needs water unless it’s over watered.
I know everyone has a way that works. That works for me.
And unfortunately you can cause damp off even just by misting.
When I first got going I did one seed at a time a week apart to so I wouldn’t kill a whole crop with the same mistake. It’s like an assembly line once you got it going it keeps rolling.
Now I’m doing Some fun experiments with bday gifts lol (a pot for pot)
Remember why your growing don’t get frustrated you’ll get there
Hope it helps??
