Indoor plant

Hey i started putting my seed in jiffy pots (squash, tomatoes,cucumber,beets,purplebeans) what can i do to help them germinate ? (I did it monday 16th)

Starting Seeds

Just keep them warm (room temperature), moist (but not soaked), and in a well-lit place. Otherwise, all you can do is wait!

Starting indoor plants safe for cats

I have two cats and want to grow indoor plants that are safe for them should they want to eat them. Any recommendations and without spending too much money. Appreciate your input and thank you for your time.
