When should you turn on the light for your germination station?

by mgdmancb about February 14 - report

When should you turn on the light for your germination station?  Dont want my roots to get effected by the lights as I have seen that could be an issue.  This is for Seed to sprout not clones.

    how are you germinating? Rooter plugs or rockwool? Strait in the soil? Paper towel? I use both rockwool and rapid rooters. Pre soaked in ph water with only a little rapid start. Put them in the dome hang a light about 36” away, and leave it on 24hrs. When I see roots coming out the bottom it’s time to transplant. Easy peasy:)

      Once you put them in the plug, you gotta cover the hole a little. Leave in the plug with lights on and temps about 75-78 until you see roots out the bottom of the plug . Then you can transplant. If growing dwc, I’d use rockwool. Same rules apply.

    With that DWC system I would start your seeds off in the rockwool. Bigruss has a video about this method on his youtube channel. I have since adopted his method and have had a 100% success rate( 12 seeds). Let us know what you decided and if it has a better outcome for you. Seeds are pricey these days lol.
