My first grow i started ended very quickly i germinated 7 seeds and 6 sprouted and of those six only one busted through the soil and this plant lasted for about 5 days and dies over night. I know this is because i used a crappy work lite i had so my plant would get to hot and i would end up wattering way to much. So this week im probaly gettin a 4ft fluro and ill mix the 2 type of bulbs and im gonna get some new seeds and try again. Im confused on if i want to put my plant under light after i plant the rooted seed or if i want to keep it in the dark with the soil moist till it breaks through the soil. Any help would be nice.

You don't need light until the seed breaks the soil.
You can have a light on but it's just a waste of $.

A "work light" most likely will hurt your plants more than help them.
Only 3 types of light are adequate for growing pot:
Fluorescents (poor)
MH (great for veg not so much for flowering)
HPS (the King Of Lights).

You have to modify a fridge drastically for it to work. Drill hole and put in fans whole nine yards. but make a great system. perfectly sealed from light. freezer section for moms and clone and fridge section for flower. Makes for a sweet set-up if done right. don't forget a carbon scrubber for exhaust. ;)
