All seedlings were then sprayed with .9 Nutrient and the a Sure To Grow Mat wet H2O was added on top. All trays are covered with a clear dome and a heat blanket below on low settings.

These picture were taken 7 am 01/11/13
Updates will follow as growth occurs.

Note:  Rockwool cubes are larger holes which was easier for placing seed from hand feeder.
I didn't cover holes only using the Sure To Grow mat. Microgreens aren't covered with media and they sprout.

Updates coming in days as the seedlings sprout.
