Never can have too much light IMHO. If they're in a cooltube, he should be OK. You sure could help out the home heating system with 'em during the winter!
I had two 1000W in a cooltube with the intake in one side of the room and the exhaust in the other with a simple Menard's duct boost fan. The air conditioner rarely came on. The room was 8x8x7.5, with four fans.

Why don't you just grow them under a few of the fluorescent lights for like 30 watts and when bigger use the hps. Kind of wasting a lot of electricity doing that in seedling stage.
Thanks for the tip mate ! I m on e27 led atm thays what we call it here in greece. 1st week is gone 6 of my girls didnt make it i dont know maybe my soil was too strong or seeds kinda old (07/2021) their date . Had some issues with distance of bulb but i fixed it . Fed with adv nutr 50% power 2 times this week and they are looking good

You generally don't need any nutrients for quite sometime unless you're using coco which has zero nutrients.

It's always better to under power the lights as opposed to using too much. Under powered will have slow growth and overpowered will kill them.

If the seeds are too old they won't germinate, but if they do germinate then it's your technique that likely killed them. With the most likely being over watered then probably too intense of light being used.

Also all the nutrients you have, have a complex mixing order and is easy to screw up. I like veg + bloom and you might need a little cal mag, but that's it. It's also a dry fertilizer so it saves on room. Just pH it correctly throw that in there and you're done!

I guess if you're a commercial grower, doing all that extra may net you a tiny increase in your yield, but for all the potential issues I don't think it's worth it.

That and people have been successfully growing weed with just simple regular miracle grow during veg and I think they switch to the tomato or flower fertilizer during flower time with cheap Walmart soil.

So always pH your water. Mine fluctuates from 7.5 to 9.5 so it's always a constant struggle. I'd say at least 2 weeks but more like a month you wouldn't need nutrients and that depends on the size of your plant as well as the size of the container. If you're in 1-3 gallons, then probably a month. The ones you have probably 2 weeks.

I mean really you could just wait until it's a little nitrogen deficient (a little light green) as an indicator of needing nutrients. The more proper way would be to check your water run off in terms of ppm or ec to see when you should add nutrients.

I'm lazy so I have an octopot which eliminates the potential of overwhelming/under watering and nutrients I just open one of the holes and check directly. My plants grow 50% faster and has the benefits of hydro growth speed without having to use aerators or cycling out all of the water.

dude, don't even think of topping until those plants are in bigger containers and much taller...I get serious with my topping when I hit the fifth node...me thinks you may have gone all out on your gear before you did a lot of research on how to grow...best of luck
