Science Experiment Part 2

I figure I'd start a new topic so that it didn't get overloaded with pictures. After this I'll use a webpage I'm putting up for it, and will post about updates there. I finally think I've been able to identify which is which now, and it's just a matter of time before they grow nice and big.

That was a couple days ago; how are they doing now? In the picture some were looking kind of leggy / stretched. Are they getting enough light? It takes more than you would think. I start a bunch of stuff from seeds in late winter getting ready for spring. I have two shop light fixtures over each tray (= 4 fluorescent tubes). They are hung so they are just a few inches above the little plants and they are on 16 hrs a day.

They look somewhat spindly to me, too. Happy seedlings are short and almost "fat" looking. Sturdy little guys! :)

These appear to be stretching over the rim of the container to reach light.

What was your lighting set-up again? (sorry; can't remember :oops: )

I've got a 60 watt "plant light" bulb I got from walmart. Not much of a selection here. Yeah, they're kinda leggy but I'm hoping they turn out fine. I don't think I keep the light close enough, but they're all under there. I'll know better next time.
