Maybe put a humidity dome over the top to keep it moist. Plastic bag? Sticks in the four corners of the tray.

 

18w is not to strong.  You could easily put it on full. About 10" from canopy.

I only put them under lights when they get the first real set of leaves. A reaction to a seedling that's reacted badly.

Some seeds can take a while to break ground 5-10 days sometimes. Most of mine average 4 or 5 days.

But I'm using paper towel and soak.

The lights might be 20c but that will be, above the heat sink. Usually in the top of the light iirc.

central heated house should be fine.

Good luck.

If you pot up into a decent sized intermediate pot  then they should do OK out in the greenhouse, provided you give them a drink in the mornings if it's due to get hot.

If you're uncertain about the night temps outside at the moment as @Kipper420 mentioned, and you need to keep them inside for a little longer, you can put the tray in a cardboard box and get the lights in there.  No need to close the box but the slight heat produced by those lights should keep a nice warm temp in there until you're ready to put them out.
