    Thanks xvart! at that time there was 2, 2-tube T8's around 13 hrs.
    Now I plugged in the other 2-tube T8 for 3 in all and they're on, like 14-14 1/2 hrs I think?

    I just water the trays they're in without watering overhead using distilled water from the supermarket.
    This is the best option for water. Especially if you use sand instead of perlite. Sand tends to cling on to nutrients more, in my opinion. But, Jungle Guts, it's up to you how you grow your babies. People can tell you're wrong, but I have many different "non-contemporary" ways that work, some better than others. If you ever find your plants in distress, everyone on this forum will help you remedy the problem. Welcome to the Forum!!
