I was talking to a cannabis cultivator out of Israel. He soaks his seeds too, but overnight in one pint of water with 30 ml of 3% H202, hydrogen peroxide.

 

I also learned why I had a hard time germinating in rockwool. My ph was at 5.8-6.0. Another friend informed me rockwool ph drifts up. Seeds don't like it. I ph my soaking mix at 5.5. The seeds like it a lot. 80 F seems to be good on my seed mat thermostat.

 

 Good luck!

A seedling will not need a lot of lighting. CFL or T5 fluorescents are used for the first week of a seedlings life.

Literally something like this?

If so, what kind of distance would I need? 

Goodness me! I’m impatient! Got the tent, extraction, bits & bobs and seeds - need the nutrients (coming Tuesday) & light (hopefully this week). 

Very tempted to get the seeds going before the nutrients arrive - but it would be tight if there was a delay!

 

Just start growing.

@fital You dont necessarily need this mate, if you already got a light n shit, then they can go under that, but either raise light high up in the tent so its far from the plant, or if you have one of those new LED that are dimmable, dim it down to fifty percent and it should be fine. 

But for CFL/ fluorescent. Look for a T5 grow light mate, search ebay/amazon, what ever you use and youll find one. About £40 i think

@macky thanks again!

No confirmation on a date for main lighting to arrive (ordered it Monday so just guessing it should be this week).

Found this for £30:

6C6C12A2 3D93 4D4F ACA6 E21F98E35712

Looks like what I need - will chat with my wife and she’ll hopefully talk me into waiting for the main light as opposed to buying an extra.

Any additional benefits from having an extra light other than seedlings?

That depends on what your main light is going to be 😉 lol. But usually, the main light is fine on its own. 

Also, pop them beans when they arrive man, it'll take from 3 days to 7 days to get them germinated and above soil. When the first leaves come out, they need light. It'll take a few days before that happens

Seedlings and clones are your top uses for that light. I purchased 3 led “20watt grow lights” from Lowes and have them mounted under a shelf where I work with seedlings and clones. It frees up some tent space and helps me get a jump start on the next run. I also have kept small solo cup mom plants there before with good success. An extra light and a small shelf can really be a handy thing for a grower
