Water the seedlings sparingly.A few days before planting the plants subjected to mild annealing, lowering the first temperature to 4-5°C, and then introducing the seedlings in the afternoon on the balcony under the rays of the sun. First, leave it there for 2-4 hours, then half a day and finally for the whole day.
