hey I bought a 72 pod seedling tray and I am sprouting several different veggies for fall I read the obscure directions on each packet and some said 1-2 per pod which we did and some some spread evenly now on like the lettuce and collards and different ones there are 10-15 sprouts comming up per pod is that to many? should i kill off to one per pod?
Im new to this any advice helps.

Thanks
Lonnie

When you say pod, do you mean each square? (as in the photo below)

If there are 10 seedlings in a single square it's time to prick them out before their small roots intertwine.

I've had similar happen before and I just planted out the juveniles and left a few in pods to mature furthur.
