    Of course it can be done.
    I would wait for the first nodes rather than just flip from the cotyledons (The first two baby leaves)
    I would also maybe start them with a cfl rather than hps.Just a waste to use hps so early.

    Hi Hotshot.
    I didn’t say it would hurt my dear,just that it is overkill in the very early days.Why spend so much on electricity when it isn’t needed?
    But as we are in a lockdown and that is all the op has then it’s perfectly fine

    It's what I'm doing, I've done it before and it suits me as I have ltd space. Weed quality is unaffected quantity is, of course. I've used both 250w HPS dual spec and I've tried a 300w red cfl, really didn't find much in it tbh. I'm back on hps now, for no particular reason.

    It's good because you can add plants to your groom and have a perpetual 12/12 grow.

    We are as well as can be expected with the current conditions... we both have elderly, vulnerable parents to attend... it takes it toll

    I imagine it is awkward for your frequent vacations too?

    It’s a crazy time..Sending good vibes to you all and hope you all get through unscathed.Must be so frightening for your parents.
    Ive just my own little family to take care of as sadly I’ve no oldies left.
    I’m actually finding this quarantine quite relaxing,been tending the garden all day, last two days.With some nice tea breaks

    We have just the one holiday booked but not while Christmas,whether it will happen who knows.Both Self employed but thankfully mortgage free so We’ll always have a roof over our head.That is what I keep telling the other half who is very very worried.

    Just to add, to the OP....I'm not entirely certain that 12/12 from seed is a economical way of doing things, you don't really cut off as much time as you might think (unless you usually veg for months) and the harvest is well down on a vegged plant. I do it for reasons of groom size, my only other option would be scrog or a bit of lst. I also like the idea of trying loads of different strains etc and having a monthly harvest, well that's the plan.
