switching from heat mat to grow light.

My seeds are starting to sprout but I have a lot of cells and only a few have come up yet. Should I remove the heat and put them under lights right away? Keep the heat until more germinate? Use the heat AND lights? etc.

I would do heat and lights

Just take off a humidity dome if you are using one once the first one germinates.

I usually leave the seeds on up to 7 days after the first one germinates of the same variety.
