Hey all,in a bit of a pickle.I'm currently waiting for my seeds to germinate.after doing what I've done,I'm at the stage where my seeds have been sowed and I have them in my tent with the light on.should I have it on or should I be waiting for some growth first?
My seeds are in cups with soil and perlite and are also covered with cling film.
Thanks for any help

Bro isn't that like a farmer planting hoping it stays dark for a few days for his corn with germinate ??? I plant my seeds in rapid rooters and leave my lights on 24/7 for 2 reasons. 1st to keep them warm I like my room around 80 degrees. 2nd your plant is seeking out light to grow when she pops. Even if I germ at home I always use a light for the warmth maybe I'm wrong let me know your results

I've since turned it the right way but I'm not expecting much to happen as I've read that its pretty bad for the tap root to bed exposed to light.
I will wait a day or 2 and see how she is. I started 7 seeds only expecting 4 to take but I'm pleased to announce that all but 2 has came up.still very early stages for all but 1.the rest have germinated but not up n out the soil yet.I can just see the green of the sprout at this time.I'm hoping to get up tomorrow and my babies are all up searching for light
