    I am just starting to flask my own seed and was going to make my own breathable containers. I was going to us regular canning jars and drill a hole in the top and stuff it with cotton.

    Using a container that is already made and breatheable would make life much easier!

    Hey Ryan! Those guys look great!

    I am sure some people will disagree, but I would let them grow a bit longer. We have taken seedlings out that small and they do alright, but it just seems easier to do it when they are a bit bigger. Plus when they are larger, they are easier to put into a couple of compots so they have more room. JMHO. Good luck!!!

    Cheers!
