I planted a seed a few eeks ao in some potting soil and just stuck it outside to see what happened and now i have a 1/2 sprout that is growing by the minute. I want to use this as a mother plant to take clones from. I have seen these grown under a shop light. I have a 4 foot shop light with two T12 40W flourescent bulbs. I want to place the sprout in a larger pot soon and put it on a germination tray with a lid to grow the mother plant. With regular watering do yall think that this will grow a healthy plant if so about how long until i can cut clones and if not what do i need to fix. Also how long do i leave the lights on for. If anyone can help with any of this i would appreciate it.

You dont want to cut clones till it's mature. That will happen in about 6 to 8 weeks. When you start seeing preflowers or the leaves start alternating you will know it is mature. The shop light will work for keeping a mother plant alive. just keep it close. Put a light fan on it, like a computer fan, to strengthen the stem. Seedlings dont need a dome or a cover. Just pout it under the light. You will need a dome for the clones. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
