too soon to move to light?

Post by chrissmith44x » Mon Jan 02, 2012 12:33 pm

Hi all

happy new year

at what stage of germination should i get them into the light

currently i have about 1.5 inches of white trunk above the soil. plus root growth

they have all germainated within my airing cuboard which must be 30+ degrees

so removing them and placing them into their own pots in a 20 degree room is going to be stressfull.

or is that ok?

light levels are low. so i was going to buy a small lamp to place them under for a few hours a day (also it should icnrease temps to around 25 degree)

is this ok? or is it too early to move them into the cooler lighter area

I move mine soon after germination, low light means stretchy, no light means curly wurlys!
An extra light source will definitely help, as will the extra heat just be careful with the watering, cos as you know wet+not so warm=dead
