@Yves: I have found sulfuric acid in the local pharmacy. They can deliver a 4% solution. I hope it works for me. Thanks for your advise!
@maxxima: Interesting point you have there! As damp off is a major problem, it sounds obvious to keep the seedlings on low humidity during the first several weeks of their lives. Maybe till the 6 leaf stage?
@Greg: Sounds great! When exactly to you transfer the plants to your greenhouse (how many leaves)?

seedlings are very hardy, they can take 0C no problem. i even had a few covered with snow, nothing happened. they won't grow at such temps but they won't die either. by the way, they have no problem germinating in that range so you can keep some of them outside if space is an issue.

"How do you sow the seeds?" . There is another very good option: on wet paper or wet tissue paper, and another times into a glass of water. I never tried it, but a friend of DAEPC.org tried it with great success. .
Some photos of a friend who did it.
And another times, silica sand and perlite, or 100% perlite or 100% vermiculite it is fine too.
