Just a few questions.

  1. Just started growing, I have a few questions.
    How long should I germinate seeds before transfering them to soil? Its been 24 hours now and they have started to crack.
    also will a 100w CFL in a 1x1x2' box be enough ligh for one plant?

  2. 100w is enough to get a very shitty yield. i'd go 200 minimum.

    check my thread in siggie for info on germination
  3. wait until the the little taproot is between 1/4 and a 1/2 inch. Then, CAREFULLY place it (root down) into your growing medium.

    I agree with Stylez, 100W is a little anemic.
  4. I dont wanna Hijack, But say:

    Can someone use around 100w in CFLs in a little growbox until the plants are kinda big ( 6-8 inches) and are ready to go outside?

    Since theyre at the beginning stages, would that light be enough?

    Also, I thought its all about lumens, in a sense.

    One can have (2) 60 watt CFL that only puts out 2,000 lumens, but one could have (4) 30 w bulbs each putting out 1600 lumens each.

    Who would get the better grow?

    the second guy, I believe
