    I always used to germinate via wet paper towel. This time I planted my seeds directly into soil, in my propagation tray w/lid and heat mat. Should I start giving them light right away, or should I let them germinate overnight first?

    I just turn the light on, it helps warm the surface which is good for germination & also good incase it pops while your sleeping.

    Yeah, I just ended up turning on the CFL I've got hanging above. I figure, people put seeds in the ground outside, where the light is on LOL

    Not needed, but doesnt hurt. Its not like your cfl is consuming 1000 watts anyway.

    No green no photosynthesis
