For a Dye Garden that I am planning on planting in the spring I purchased seeds from the Grand Prismatic Seed Company, which has amazing support. I did try for a grant to purchase grow lights however other candidates were chosen. I have two Ott Lights that some people claim can be used as grow lights, Grant Prismatic said that the spindly plants from last year were due to a lack of light. I planted 3 seeds in 5 pots for 5 different species of flowers, 25 total. These were the packets of seeds that contained 100+. I planted about 4-5 days ago and today when I looked there were some seedlings peeping up. The Ott lights are on the entire time that I am home, so at least 12 hours a day.
