    I have sprouts. I'm transplanting the Izmir seedlings into the float trays later today. Maybe the Maden too. The YTB is not far behind and my second start on Burley and Virginia popped out last night or today. My first tobacco!! I already thought of a company name: Hole Leif Tobacco. Has a nice ring doesn't it?

    Guesses: White hose is for water maybe that runs to a sink or washer? Red tape for safety distance from heat from the heater?

    its a damn good heater,,, it puts out plenty of heat, and with a fan blowing on the heater, it circulates very good,

    the setup worked very good last year for a kiln,

    those are exaust hoses, [ dryer duct] in case it gets too hot in there, i have a dual squirrel fan under the '' area''

    eventually all of this will be hooked up to a controller,

    to exaust too much heat / humidity.

    and thats not '' red tape'' it's the bottom of a street sign, the walls are lined with these signs for insulation, and over them i have some mylar, to reflect the light, so if i do fill the room up, all the light i can get will be used, the floor and ceiling i lined with styrofoam, the room is insulated real good,

    ive done a lot of '' future'' planning on this room, working all winter, on the '' small things'' to get it to this point,

    Re: starting your plants under '' lights'' > share your experience,

    Dum question #222:

    What technically is germination?

    I got pretty good germination on my tobacco plants under lights and now are sprouting some cardinal vine flowers to plant on a fence as privacy screen. Package says 10-14 days for germination and it has been only 72 hours and I have a root and stalk.......

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr have to order more seeds. Seems someone else's idea of the name isnt the same as mine was. I used to grow the cypress vine according to the plant site I ordered instead of cardinal vine....
    Oh well they say the one I got outgrows the other and are similar but I liked the feathery texture of the "cypress vine" that I thought was cardinal vine... It will grow 20' and makes an almost unpenatratable screen. And self seeds.
