Hey there Smoke! You can always Grab some CFL bulbs they work great for the seedling/young veg stage. They are fairly cheap and you can put a couple over the plants to keep them going until you get then outside. I'm pretty much doing the same thing right now with mine just with a 2 tube 2FT T5. but the CFL's are just as good just not a tube light bulb. If you do go CFL route you would want to get something in the Daylight category it will give a more white light instead of yellow but is not that important or you can mix both types. and since they are going outside anyway CFL's are a great option cheap and effective:+1: Happy Growing!!:pray:

Get some screw in LED bulbs, phillips work great. That should carry you through veg, 4 to 6 weeks. 30 watts per sq ft will do. Just be sure to remove the plastic dome. Don't use nutrients yet, let the plant feed itself from the soil, then transplant to final pot and start feedings only when you see the first signs of deficiency. Done correctly, you should not need nutrients until flowering stage.
