I’m new to growing from seed and not sure how much or when to water - a lot or little when first planted? And then how often? More or less when they start to sprout?
If you moisten the growing medium before you plant the seeds, then cover them with a plastic lid or plastic wrap, they should stay moist in their micro climate till the seeds spout. Once they sprout, remove the covering. Then monitor them daily and make sure they are moist but not wet. These articles should be helpful:
