Hi first timer newbie here so I need all the help I can get.
I built a nice size raised garden box (15x4x2.5) at the end of last September that I haven't used yet.
Ten days ago I started a flat of various seedlings under a 2' fluro lighting strip with one cool and one daylight bulb.
I used six different vegetable seeds and most cells have germinated and started growing.
I read that I should keep the light strip as close as possible (1" or 2" max) the plants so they don't get too tall or leggy.
I didn't give any forethought to various germination times or growth rate.
Now I have some seedlings that are two+ inches tall, some that just sprouted and I guess some that may still eventually come up.
I have raised the lights a bit, but some are already touching the bulbs, while others that are still two inches below the bulb.
If I keep raising the light at the rate some are growing, I think the little guys are going to be too far underneath the bulbs for optimal lighting.
Short from building a entire new plant/light rack and purchasing a new fluro fixture and bulbs, does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for the help.
