    Hello, I started a seedling inside a jiffy. It's already 6 days from the start and the first leafs came out. It's 2 cm tall and I saw that a little root(0.5 cm) is sprouting out of the bottom of the jiffy.
    In which height I have to transplant it to a bigger planter?
    Does the jiffy needs to sprout more than one root?
    Does I need to give the jiffy 18h of light or 24? Under HPS or regular bulb?

    Transplant as soon as you see the a root.
    18 hours and I don't know what you mean by regular bulb, but save the HPS for flowering time. Cannabis vegges jus' fine under CFLs of LEDs
    Welcome aboard.

    Someone told me to transplant only when I see at least 2 roots? So 1 root is fine?

    Yes, That is the tap root, if it dries, she dies.

    Not a good idea to listen to old wives tell tales.

    Better idea?
    Click on the first link in my sig. and start reading. then you will be able to tell the difference between fact and hearsay, yah?

    Good luck,
    Wee 'zard
