80 here too. Stick them under soil, and the lights on to warm the top to about 80

what about when it gets to a couple inches? same temp? the little contraption ive made to start my seeds was left on all night last night and got to 82 degrees. so i should be fine. im planning on starting my seeds with a jiffy seed starter. im sure someone knows some reasons why this isnt good enough. please share. i just spent $700 on seeds and i definatly dont want to mess this up. this is going to be my first grow.

I use rapid rooters and pH them at 6.5.

82 should be a little warm. try 78-80 IMO. Even when it grows a few inches temp should be about same.

Og's spot on. I dont bother preping the seed before putting it in soil. I just lay the seed down, sprinkle with soil on top to cover it and spray with water, Then under the lights to keep em warm and ready for sprouting. Good results so far. Never used the jiffy starters

That light in the cardboard box is exactly what i have to start my plants. Mine has 4 Cfls in it. Nice one. Be careful though, dangerous around electricity. Dont want a fire.

Man now I feel really ghetto....I use a styrofoam egg carton...put 2 tablespoons of seed starter in each spot, moisten and plant seeds in it. Then they go under a single cfl...

I had a terrible record with seeds, get a taproot no problem, get out of the ground no problem, from the seedling stage to a decent rootball, terrible.............. until I started using this method and I am sitting at 100% since! hxxp://www.mandalaseeds.com/Guides/Germination-Guide

Thats a lot of seeds all at once! I hope you have loooots of room for once they are big girls.
