What’s color temp of leds?
Hps will make your plant stretch because it’s better for flower. The leds would probably be better for vegging if you can find a way to get them grouped together better
LEDs are just white… Guessing daylight white…Under-cabinet light I had laying around … The stamp just says 10 watts and there are 8 little diodes in the bar…The light faces down and sets 4’’ above the seedlings

Which one do you want to keep open ? I will be shutting one down
10 watts is awfully low. I would just go to the home improvement store and buy some CFL bulbs and sockets. You could buy 4 of the 23 watt CFLs and have 92 watts, which is enough for 2 square feet of 2 foot high seedlings. Then when you get a tent or grow chamber worked out, add your HID bulb.
