Started paper germination Friday evening, put in soil Monday midday. Could see it about to break though the dirt Tuesday evening, and by Wednesday morning it stood 1.5cm tall, and I turned on the light.
In my first grow I used a 277watt led panel with both bloom and vegetation switches. So about 150watt just for vegetation.
To save on power consumption the first few weeks, I am using a new 26watt led for when the plant is very young.
We are experiencing an unusual warm summer, and I am using outdoor air to cool my grow room. Because of this, I can not lower the temperature of my grow room any more. The description of Northern Lights mention that it prefers warm climates, and as such I feel there is no reason to buy an AC. By the time the plant is ready to flower, the outdoor temperature should be more reasonable.
