Emergence Day!

Looks like an even start for both seeds. For timing, this is four days after the initial soak. They are under a 315-watt CMH (Ceramic Metal Halide) light that has a 4200K bulb to help simulate natural sun light. If you want the technical details than they are also receiving about 200-250 PAR, which is a measure of light intensity.

The CMH light is preferred over other options because it also produces some heat which is a good thing early in the season. Also, this light will be following the chosen seedling out in the cold frame to help extend the daylight and improve the plant efficiency of CO2.
