Seed Layout 2013

Growing seeds under a grow light. The light is about six inches from the seed pods. I plan to buy clear covers for the tubs, to keep in humidity. Basement temperature is around 64 degrees. Ideally, it should be 70 degrees. Some people use heating pads underneath the tubs.

March 20 – put clear covers over tubs to keep in humidity

March 22 – seeds starting to show signs of life. T1 over an inch tall.

April 12 –

This seed layout is under a 4 foot dual fluorescent light, one is a grow light. The light fixture only covers the shown seeds; hence the empty slots. The 4 foot lights only cover 15 plant pods.
