Initial Light for Seeds in dirt

Hi everyone! My first post! I just germinated 1st seed and put in dirt. How much light and how many hours should the light be used on it? 24/7? Or some other schedule? It’s only been 1 day but I want to do it right. Thank you!!

Anywhere from 24/0 to 12/12 is fine. Less would probably work but I have never done it that way, not that it can’t be done.

Ok Graysin, I’m just going to leave the light on then! Thank you!

Welcome! I run my veg tent on 6/2 lighting so that’s what my germinated seeds get.

Hey Bobby, so 6 hours light and 2 off, then repeat?

That’s correct. They still get 18hrs a day. Just 2 hour naps every 6 hours.

I use a t5 seedling lamp on 24 hours
