    Hi all, new grower here. I planted seed a week ago in my hydroponics cabinet and they are sprouting to about an inch. At what point do I turn on the lights (LED)? Also, is this when I start with adding nutrients? Thanks!

    Once they are above the surface...their ready for light. ... weak nutes in about 2-3 weeks.

    Sprouts and seedlings can take full sunlight, but if he's in a soilless medium, shouldn't they get nutrients right away?

    Seedlings have a stored supply of nutrients which will last then a good 2 weeks. Feeding too soon can stunt our little ones.
