Before the LED lights were switched on....
This picture shows the Begonia seedlings before the LED lights were set up.
After the LED lights had been on for 48 hours....this picture clearly shows the development of the seedlings in a short space of time. They are much larger and substantial. The top tray looks quite sparse because i sowed the seed too thinly, it is not due to failure to germinate!
The Begonia seedlings were put under the LED lights on 12th February to try to speed up development particularly as the weather forecast was for little sun over the next few days. The results have been impressive for such a short time.
