    once that plant has come out of soil you should have put light on it right away..keeping the light oh, about 2 " above the plant so that you dont burn it...you have been out of the seedling stage for a bit now...you are in what they call the vegg state untill you are ready to flower teh plant.

    1-2 weeks. go ahead, blast it.

    You need to put your hand right by the plant and if your hand gets too hot after a while then your plant is too hot.
    make sure the plant gets plenty of water because it's apt to dry up faster seeing as it will really start to grow around 2 weeks!

    depends on the light you have...using 2 nice cfl bulbs per plant should be good untill they get bigger...you can flower you plant at anytime you want..and it depends on how much you want.....just make sure you water your plant good and keep the ligh ton them!
