May I make a small suggestion. Why not grab a few CFLs or even a t-5 or t-8 fluorescent fixture to veg under. 1,000 watts of light for 13 day old plants is like renting a semi tractor trailer to go grocery shopping. Plenty of room for groceries but a whole lot of wasted space, or in the 1,000 watts case wasted energy. Just a thought, though if you have 30 plants in 1 gallon pots I understand, or 6 plants in 20 gallon pots I get it.Im using a 1000 watt Mh light, 20 inches from 13 day old plants. My light meter says 100k -110k lumens. Temp 80-88 degrees. Plants seem to be fine so far but im worried i am overdoing it. Are my temps or lumens to high? My cooling duct fan is on the way, hopefully soon! TY, im new to growing!
