    Light Important for germinating seeds?

    Hey guys! Im about 1.5-2 months or so from finishing up my current grow. Im thinking about when I should start germing the next batch of seeds. Will they still start to grow well at 18/6 lighting or should I try to go for 24 hours of light?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a little table with a small t-5 grow light and a CFL with a reflector i put my seedling and sprouts under it for a couple weeks, then i'd transfer it. But i keep my little seedling light on 24hrs even for the seedlings. If you don't have a seedling station i suppose you can run it at 18/6, autos would do great but if you got a really intense LED they will need to be at least 36" you don't want to have to decrease light with those blooming gals. Whats your next seeds going to be?

      I run mine at 18/6 mostly because I think a bit of a dark period is helpful for root growth.

        Before they make it into a solo cup I worry about warmth not light but after they are in the cup and onward they get 18/6.

          Thanks guys! I think im going to start with Rapid Rooters then into solo cups. SoOrbudgal - Im going to do AF Blueberry and Amnesia Haze. With the Blueberry, Im going to do a correct Scrog (hopefully; I messed it up this time around in a super weird way-it grew taller up one side than the other)

            Two words: South Beach. My photos will be Wild Thai for pain and White Widow fast, and maybe that Mag seed. I have Alaskan Purple auto seeds but I'm not rolling into autos again right now. Maybe the new light will help next time but I think it was the genetics. Short end of the genes. I still want to grow Gelato, I've always liked that strain.

          I put the seed in water Wednesday morning and into a Rapid Rooter on Thursday. My Amnesia Haze has already sprouted! My blueberry has not tho

            How are your other girls growing panalilies ? I found another Mag seed, put it in the Aero-Garden starter. I have 3 more seeds soaking to drop in starters later today, I might drop the first Mag seed I found. At least I know how old those seeds are and how they were stored. They're lighter in color but Nebula says she has better success with tan seeds, we'll see. If they take off you might want to keep some space in your tent.
