    indoor I'm running out of indoor grow space under my T5

    lighting When should I introduce lights to my plants in my humidity dome?

    When do you introduce light to your seedlings when germinating in a humidity dome?  I know some growers put their dome under lights as soon as they plant their seeds.  I have also noticed that some growers keep their humidity dome covered in total darkness and don’t introduce lights until their...
