    Default 400W MH seedling

    I'm wondering if it's ok to start my seedling of with my 400w metal halide, will it be ok if I get the distance from plant correct? I'll buy a cfl if not

    I have started them under a 600. Just don't put it to close and keep an eye on the temps.

    You can do it, but at the same time, you dont want the light too far from the plant because itll stretch for it....

    On my last grow I had them under t5 for about 3 days then straight to 600w hps at 20” from canopy with no issues. This time I’m going for t5 for A lot longer then move to 400w MH then 600w hps.
    Saves on penny’s aswel.
