How much of a fan is needed for seedlings? New lamp setup (pics)
My wife and I took a crack at starting plants from seed last year and had minimal success. Dampening off and lack of sunlight were the main culprits. This year, I'm determined to get those good looking starters I keep seeing on this board, so I put together a grow light lit area. Single ballast with two 4100k 20Watt T12 Sylvania bulbs and a custom build coroplast hood(I still need to spray the inside with flat white). Lamp is hung crooked due to differing heights with starter containers:
How much of a fan / breeze do you require to stimluate the seedlings to grow sturdier as they shoot upwards? I have a low speed 80mm PC case fan powered with a wall wart which puts out a mild breeze. Also - does this dry out the surface quicker?
Appreciate any input.
