Just wondering if I should try to use these (Cauliflower)or perhaps start over.....

That's what mine look like, only mine are still much smaller. I'll be interested to see what others say.

If you started these indoors, what kind of lights did you start them under and what temperature is the room?

RE: [Pic] Need Seedling Assesment [Pic]

I think they look fine. What is the concern?

RE: [Pic] Need Seedling Assesment [Pic]

Thanks! Wasn't sure about the legginess......

RE: [Pic] Need Seedling Assesment [Pic]

You can plant Brassicas deeper when they go into the garden. Not a problem.


Hind sight, I use 4' shop lights (Lowes,$50, less bulbs). Each fixture has 4-T8,32W cool white bulbs.....

Heated shop temps are 60-65D & 55N.......

Planting Brassicas

Thanks flora uk! I'll sleep better tonight....... ;)

We're using the same lights. I have two of those fixtures over 4 trays total (as of today). But mine are probably leggy because they were too hot previously, and also maybe because they were under HPS lighting.

Keep us posted on how they harden off outside. I'm going to sow another batch of cabbage, broc/caul with my now lower temps and fluro lighting. I'll update later to see if there is a noticeable difference.
