Question about grow lights for germination

From a fellow grower: if I have a seed in the jiffy starter from a pot to pot, should I use my blue seedling grow light on it with a heat pad underneath?

Correct. Seedlings don’t require a whole lot of light and ordinary everyday light bulbs (CFL, flourescent,…) work just fine; however, be aware that you’ll need a add proper cannabis lighting after 2 weeks or so. The seedling stage doesn’t last but maybe 2 weeks.

Do you have a bigger light, and if not, what is your budget for lighting? The good folks here can help.


Could we get more information on the lighting options please?

If you have a light designed specifically for seedlings, that will probably best to use. But it doesn’t have to be all blue.
