The propagator is set at a temperature of 27 degrees Celsius (80.6 degrees Fahrenheit) at the soil surface level.
Sunday 23rd January: The grow lights are switched on. In the installation I am using 2 x 200 w white/blue grow lights. These lights are set at 11.5 hours a day (7 am – 6.30 pm)
Monday 24th January: The plants are watered (4 fluid ounces)
Wednesday 26th January: Due to the tree’s welfare, I removed 5 trees from the propagator leaving a total of 12 trees in the installation. The problem was overcrowding where some of the trees were shading the smaller trees from the light. This resulted in a few trees struggling with leaf growth.
Approximately 6.5 cm (2.5 inches) of growth during this week
The tallest trees at the end of week 8 are 41 cm (16 inches)
