how much light for seedlings?
I am basically referring to seedlings being grown for transplants. I need to know how many hours per day you give them with light you would give them initially (i.e. after they've germinated and when they're 'newborne seedlings')
I also know you gradually reduce the amount of light they receive per day until it's to the point that it mimics the duration of light outside to get them used to outdoors conditions.
The seedlings would be tomatoes, eggplants, cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower, and lettuce. Possiby beans, corn, peas, and okra, but I don't know yet with these.
By how much would you reduce hte light by and when would you start doing this? HOw old should the seedlings be when you do this? How often would you reduce the light (weekly, monthly etc.)
I know very little about growing seedling transplants so I could really use help with this.
THey will be grown under a grow light.
