I read many of your articles and get many useful information. I grow vegetables in my backyard using these information. What I am not able to find is, How much light I need when I start seeding in-doors until moving them to the Yard. I see "Light must be enough" or "Need at least 16 hours of light" or "Light coming from windows is not enough" but I am unable to find how much light is needed. For example is a 6500K T5 light 50 Watts 2 feet long 2 inches above the plant good for a 2 by 1 feet 10 inches deep grow pot with Cilantro seeds to stay indoors for a month? Can I use the same configuration for Tomato from seeds until I move them to the yard?

It sounds like you figured it out, John.

|John Usually. You start seeds indoors 8 wks before last frost date. Ask someone in your area or your nursery. Dont trust USDA guide.
6500k lite. Yes.
NGA has a gardening class. Good information. On growing under lites and other information too.
There is a few threads going on right now in the fourm " Ask a question " About, How. When. Pest problems. Etc. I think you might want to read up on.
Happy Gardening !!!
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|John, this will get you started: The thread "Best (inexpensive) lighting options for indoor plants?" in Ask a Question forum
The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We could learn much from them!
