Hi, I am new to gardening. I'm trying to make transplants indoors and found a cool diy project to make a self-watering container using wicking (drawing the water up into the seed containers). My question is, is this a less-than-ideal way to water the seedlings? I've been reading that plants like deep, infrequent waterings rather than a continuous supply like this would provide. But do deep, infrequent waterings apply to seedlings and baby plants as they do to plants out in the garden?

Thanks!

I think you can postpone the infrequent watering until they've actually germinated. so try out the wicking project for starting seeds.
