For anybody trying this for the first time indoors, make sure you have the right lighting so that your plants start off right, otherwise you will learn like I did that improper lighting will cause the stems to grow quicker than the leaves and you will have to support and constantly monitor them so that they don’t do a nose dive on you.
I got the right lighting now and my plants are looking real good and healthy.
While I plan on being an outdoor grower, I still starting them off indoors because it still sometimes drops to around 40 degrees at night here in NC and I want to ensure my plants get off to a good start.
