    are you growing auto's? if you are growing photoperiod plants, you need a veg area and a flower area. the literature says one covers 4x5.6 feet but i am not sure if that is for just veg or veg and flower. i would say that should be enough lighting. might be a little too much for seedlings though.i'd start them separately and slowly harden them off when you get a few sets of leaves.

    Yes I’ll be growing autos. So should I put the seedlings in another room with its own light?

    i would. plants seem to like t5 fixtures to veg under and they are pretty cheap. i have a 2 bulb 4 footer that i start my seedlings out under. i have also started seeds under regular cfl bulbs too. i just think you'd burn the seedlings under 3 1500's...

    I use the veg mode on my viparspectras. I use it from the time the seeds are sprouted until they are about 4 weeks old and then I switch on the flower and give 'em another week or so before I switch to 12/12. It keeps the plants squat and promotes lots of branching.
