Sprouting with rapid rooter-when do i start lighting

From a fellow grower: My seeds sprouted with the paper towel method. I have planted them in rapid rooter. Do I immediately light even though there are no leaves or roots coming out? Or do I wait until it sprouts up before I turn on the lights?

Either way is fine. They want a gentle light at first; many people will use a 36w cfl on a 20-24hr schedule while they’re still tender.
