During the off season I got some new grow lights for Christmas which has allowed me to start even more plants this year. As of today all of the seeds that I started on Tuesday have popped through the soil expect for three and two of those three I know germinated so it looks like we are in very good shape. Pictured below is my light setup.
I start the seeds on some shelves in a closet. On one half of the closet I've got 4 florescent bulbs with three full spectrum bulbs that are in brooders on the side. This gives plenty of light to the plants as long as I keep the florescent bulbs within about 4 inches of the plants.
On the other half of the closet I have one T5 bulb and two cfl bulbs with brooders. These setup is new but seems like it should work well.
At the bottom of the closet is a thermostatically controlled space heater. On the plants level this keeps the plants at about 85 degrees which is just about right.
So far I haven't tripped a breaker. Keeping the fingers crossed.
