When should you change you lighting?


#1

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

I have a question or two for you…
1st, when you go from the grow stage, (18 on 6 off) to the flowering stage, (12 and 12) should you change you lighting from very bright 6500K bulbs, to a softer 2700K bulb or use the 6500K for both stages?
And 2nd, instead of having to transplant, is it ok to put you sprouts into the soil container they’re going to be in throughout the process?
Thanks,
jsm

As far as the bulbs go, it is best to have both for the flowering stage. You’ll want a lot more of the soft light, but some white light is still good to have if possible.

You can certainly put the sprouts straight into their final home. Just make sure you mist the soil to keep it moist, not wet, and it a dome over each seedling.
