One Week Later, Sprouts And Seedlings

We started seeing sprouts after about 3 days. One week later, everything had sprouted. We pulled off the plastic at first sign of sprouts. Then we turned on the grow box lights and left them under the lights all day.  We turn the lights off when we go to bed, then turn them on when we wake up. So many seeds germinated that we had a lot of thinning and transplanting to do. 
You can see some of the sprouts we thinned laying on the soil in the pot. It is hard to pull seedlings because you want to let everything grow, but it's something we must do for strong and healthy plants.
