I'V TRIED EVERY THING I KNOW TO START MY OWN PLANTS FROM SEED. I TRIED THE FLOURESENT LIGHTS AND REGULAR SUNLIGHT, WARM TEMPUTURE A LITTLE COOLER TEMPUTURE, POTTING SOIL AND REGULAR SOIL AND READ ALL THE ARTICALS AND STILL GET IT TO WORK FOR ME. ALL MY PLANTS ALL TURN OUT TO BE EXTREMLY TALL AND SKINNY, EVEN AFTER REPLANTING THEM IN A DIFFERENT CONTAINER AND COVERING THEM UP TO THEIR FIRST SET OF LEAVES STILL NO LOOK. I WAS WONDERING IF YOUR COULD PLEASE TELL ME IN LEAHMAN'S TERMS STEP BY STEP HOW TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN . THANKS

lack of light. Set your plants close to the bulbs, place the hoods (if you use more than one) close together so that the light is directed over the entire group of seedlings. Rotate the pots or trays so they are evenly lit -- the lights are brighter in the middle than at the ends. Finally, leave the lights on for about 16 hours a day.

I hope this helps. lack of light. Set your plants close to the bulbs, place the hoods (if you use more than one) close together so that the light is directed over the entire group of seedlings.
