Growing an herb garden inside with fluorescent lamps?

I bought a kit for a pre-packaged herb garden aromatic. He had three bags of Burpee seeds of Basil, organo and thyme. The floor was of little disks that expand when water was added. I planted the seeds, as shown. The container is like a box of round window and the metal is approximately 14 "x 3 inches. The floor is wet and I have not watered since planted all (2 days). Since there is much sunlight coming through I want to supplement the light with a compact fluorescent bulb. I have 2 60 watts, covering the range of the box (which is a aquarium accessory) How long before I see results? How long should I maintain in the DRL? Do I have to follow in order to cover with plastic? Any other advice? N lulu No, really growing basil, thyme and oregano.

You can use fluorescent grow lux for the best results, but you must see the seeds of a week and a half to three weeks. You do not have to use the lights until the germ.

What is the best way to clean garden tools for poison ivy?

I know I'm poison ivy, the oil still may be in my tools. How do I get rid of it for you? You can not re-infected! My wedding is in four weeks.

Then wash the tools with cool water, then take a chlorine solution ratio: 1 part bleach to 9 parts water. Then dry. I keep a little help or Cort-Tech Nu-around if of accidental contact with the known. The volatile oil called urushiol and is very strong. I stroked my dog and then touched my face when I left the hair from my eyes – And, therefore, seemed like a leper for three weeks. If you are especially sensitive only to be washed with soap and water can not do the trick. And whatever you do make sure of cold water – hot water causes the oil to disperse into the pores of your skin.
