OK, I gotta say I am germinating one seed right now. Almost afraid to mention it yet just in case I jinx it…24 hrs in tapwater, it then sank. Moved to moist paper towel on top of water heater under little foil tent. 24 hours, there is a 1/4" sprout tail showing. Wooohoooo
Another question has come to mind. Once I’ve got germination and a seedling growing inside, what kind of light source would be best for this 3-4 week or so period before starting to introduce plants to outdoor world.
In the past with vegetable seedlings, I’ve used just florescent lights. Seems like these plants might want something more. Is there an led lamp bulb that would do for 1-3 plants during this youthful period? And what wattage? I don’t really need a whole expensive light system, just something a bit stronger I think before transition out. Maybe not, don’t really know
I have a big flood light that I use for chicks after incubating, but this gives off quite a bit of heat. Any suggestions?
