Right... so i have had my seeds in a moist paper towl in my airing cupboard for a couple of days... and i started to see the white stem trying to shoot out of it. I moved the seed into my bedroom where i plan to grow them under a 400w HID grow light. I placed the seed about a centre metre under the soil. I just read this ! Young seedlings - The young plants are still very delicate. Therefore you should not place them in direct sunlight or just below a 400 Watt lamp. This might cause burning. Provide young plants with nutrient water and add Boost to strengthen the root system. Should i turn the light off completely & leave the germinated seed in darkness under the damp soil ??? Please help! Thanks Luke.
