  1. hi all :)

    i have a 400W Son T Plus light from these folks:

    http://www.basementlighting.com/Merchant2/4.13/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=1&Category_Code=GL

    after the seeds pop i'm going to be putting them into papercup with bags over to get them started. i have been advised to use natural light at first at the 400W may burn then, the only problem is i can keep them outside and they would be found for sure, and my cat is allow over the window ledges. i'm thinking that if i have the 400W about 5 feet from them with say 4 fans on them to cool them down this will work ok ? or am i better looking for a flu tube and if so, any good ones available online that ship to the UK ?

    thanks much

    scott :p
     
  2. go to vatoloco sticky, and there some light sites... u can also get some lights on ebay..... look for high watts......
     
  3. put the light as high away as you can at first.

    then when they have grown to 20 cm tall, lower the light to 50 cm away from the plants top.
