Yes you can but not too close

What do you have for lights? @oldngrey2

Make sure if you use rapid rooters you cover the seed slightly to keep the light off the emerging root, it’ll help it work a little to get the seed casing off too. I personally add a clf bulb right away after i drop em in the rapid rooters

Any time now. You obviously don’t NEED light until something actually emerges from the grow medium. Sooner won’t hurt anything.
