The first step is to plant the seeds into the incubator trays. After planting the seeds, you need to make sure the power, water, and nitrogen requirements are met on the side panel.

The second step is to transfer the seedlings from the incubator to the growing trays. It does take some time for the incubator to finish so you can make time progress by sleeping if you don’t want to wait. The growing tray also needs the right power, water, and nitrogen settings.
