Re: seedlings burning

Did they burn from the moment planted, or did they burn as they got older?  I
cover my newly transplanted seedlings with plastic for about two weeks until
they  are established.  I also find that because the root sytem usually grows
pretty fast, they can outgrow the pots and need much more water, or else they
burn.  Someone else mentioned having a fan circulating the air from under the
lights.  I think I'll try that this year and see if it helps.  My seedlings
always look pretty scroungy by the time May rolls around.

 This past year was my first try at growing hosta seedlings.  I was
 doing basically what most people have been saying but anything that was
 a gold or light green seemed was burned by the lights.  I use just
 ordinary shoplights 6-12" over the plants.  Any suggestions on how to
 stop the burning this year?
