lighting in winter for seedlings
I've sown about 50 sarrs seedlings this year, but it was already May when I bought the seeds. I'm assuming the seeds were not stored very well(as in the fridge) or were not so fresh to begin with because up until now only 8 seedlings have shown themselves.(and yes, they were put in the fridge with moist sphagnum)I also have some VFT seedlings,7, that means I don't have all that many seedlings to take care of this winter. I would love to keep them inside but to do that I need a light for extra lighting. What I would want is a bulb that I can screw in a normal lamp so I don't have to buy a completely new setup.
Is there anyone here who can give me advise on this one?BTW ,I'm from europe so there's a good chance that US brands won't be sold over here.
The only lamp I've found so far is 160 watt MH lamp(mercury lamp) on ebay that claims to be ideal for cuttings and seedlings but there is no other information to be found on this one.
There's also talk about LED lamps with blue and red, would they be any good, or would the light not be intense enough?
