|I'm getting ready to start my seeds for this year and I'm using brillo solar 20 (brite noonday light) that is 875 lumens 20 watts 5000k color temp: made by GE. Do you think these will be a good light source for my seedlings? Thanks in advance. David Tucker.

|Most seeds do not need artificial light to germinate, but they will certainly need it once they begin to grow. Keep your light source on 14-16 hours a day and keep the seedlings only 1-2 inches beneath the light source to keep them from getting leggy. Adjust the light source height as the plants grow and you should have some very healthy transplants in 6-8 weeks. Enjoy!
