No need to switch to 300 watts yet, I would let them grow under the 75 watts for the whole seedling stage (3 weeks), then when you up the light trasplant to at least to 1 gallon pot (4 liters), that will ensure that they have room to grow.

Hey there @Ganja79! If you only have a 75w and a 300w then I would suggest waiting a little longer before increasing the light because the plants love to grow INTO the light and if you use to much light early you wont get that vertical growth you want. To much light can lead to a very short plant with compact nodes which isn't the best for yields! Use the little light to shape the plant for another week THEN increase the watts and watch her jump (If you did want to switch to the higher light this early make sure you raise it up a ton at least). I hope that helps Ganja79! :sunglasses:

Howdy, i would give her one more week on your " weaker" Lights. The really enjoy it having a calm light in the beginning.

Hello ! Well generally peoples use to start with low wattage if the panel is dimmable to switch to full poer into midle veg to early flowering , however I can't see anything that will be an issue with switched to 300w except for the eventual heat pruduce by the leds , if it is the case then it will be half an issue because with 300w instead of 75w you will need to put the light Higher. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
