This is my seedling set up. I still have this set up and one in the garage.
This was last year my overwintering peppers and eggplants.
While some worked out, I ended up sacrificing many babies to all kinds of weird little pests. Looking at the internet they looked like aphids, manure flies, and little little fly mosquitoes though they weren't mosquitoes. Some also got fried due to lights and being right under the heating vent.
My learning experience from last year was overwintered plants must have their own room to separate the pests from the baby plants.
In 2010 I covered the heat vent to keep the room cooler and bring the seedlings outside more often. Now that I have a green house they will go there earlier.
