Lighting for Seeds


#1

I just read in your book you recommend fluerescent lights for seeds or maybe possibly lower wattage HPS as otherwise it’s too bright for seeds I think u said. I’m someone who needs things spelled out. What’s a good wattage and light type if other than fluerescent for the seed stage? And you said this should last only 7 days before increasing to normal rest of grow lighting? Thank you

Fluoros are nice and easy to learn under. They are also great for clones. Another great thing about fluoros is: You can store young plants longer and not have to add a lot of nutrients, as long as they are under the fluoros.

You can veg seedlings under as much as 4000watts, but unless you know what you are doing; You might want to start with a lamp of less intensity.
