I just put 6 auto white widow seeds that I had in cups of water 24 hrs then transferred to paper towel for 24 hrs that all looked good and had nice little tails in my fox farms OF with fox farms HF in the middle (about solo cup size). I have a 4x4 tent with 2 tsw 2000 Mars hydro lights hanging about 24 inches from the 6 pots which gives me around roughly 600 ppfd at the tops of the pots all around atleast. I placed seeds with tails down in the middle of the HF about one knuckle deep and spray misted about 0.5L pH 6.2ish carbon filtered tap water from my spigot in each pot and put my lights on 18/6. Will keep temp 72-78 and humidity 70-75ish. They are 5 gallon fabric pots btw.
Doesn’t seem like I gave them enough water so my questions are do i water much less during the earlier stages or just the entire grow keep it saturated but not wet?
Does everything else I am doing seem good to go with you guys? Like the lights height/dimness and ppfd?
If I maintain proper ppfd for each stage that is recommended for good yields does light intensity or distance matter as long as the lights aren’t so close they are overheating the plant?
Please help and thanks in advance.
