They want to be 2" from the light. The smaller seedlings benefit the most from being close to the lights.

Re: seedlings,already giving trouble

Just a update, I have been putting them outside all day this week, 70's temps and sun.
My watermelons and such planted monday night are already coming up to.
Some of the tomatoes you can see I re-potted.
Squash are enjoying their view of the sun from inside my work shop window.
There is also 2 ornamental hot peppers I saved from last year in pots in the window,I think they are going to work out to be productive this year!

Re: seedlings,already giving trouble

Well here is all the plants in the window. I have forgot how long they have been there. About 2 weeks I think. I finally got to feeling good enough to do some work and built a shelf for them and such.
Some tomatoes have had repotomies and are out growing those bigger pots.
Hope to get some put out in the garden in a couple weeks.

Re: seedlings,already giving trouble

Wow! Get those tomatoes out in some sunshine. They are very leggy, long and thin and stretched, due to not enough light.

Even if you have to bring them back in at night for awhile, they will do much better with sun.
