Hey I have 6 bagseeds that i wanted to try out and was wondering if i could place them on a windowsill for their first weeks after germinating them. Also after that, I was planning on transplanting them outside in bigger pots.
it would be better to start them under floros rather than putting them in the window sill. they may not be getting the light they really need if theyre in a window sill... plus starting them under floros, with the light as close as u can get it without burning them would cut down on any stretching.
The window was 6 feet wide, 5 feet high, and faced East South East. 5 gallon bucket. I LST'd (didn't know about LST back then - purely coincidence) to one side. It grew all the way across the window and the side branching got about 2.5-3 feet tall. Black Gold Soil and Jobe's plant food spikes. Watered it with aquarium water. The whole house smelled like heaven. The seeds were straight from a pound that a buddy smuggled over from Honolulu in 1986. Some of the best weed I've ever had BTW. But that's a whole other story.
South facing windows are the best in the Northern hemispere.
I have a EastSouEast facing window and start and grow anything on the plant rack that sits in front of it.
Also use a couple cfls to give them more direct light and more hours of light.
Seedlings always get the cfls once they break ground
