They are available in most garden centers and come with a thermostat.
Feb 26, Plant cuttings taken from a stem or leaf will need light to root. Root cuttings can be left in the dark until they grow shoots and leaves. Plant cuttings need bright light for photosynthesis so they can make energy for new growth.
However, they should be kept out of direct sunlight, which can stress the new plant by overheating or dehydration. Successful rooting of cuttings requires careful management of the environment, especially air and media temperature, humidity and light. Misting or fogging should be managed, based partly on light intensity, to ensure leaf surfaces don’t dry before roots are established, and then the frequency should be decreased as the root system stumplopping.barted Reading Time: 4 mins.

Light is the driving energy source for photosynthesis and carbohydrate accumulation in plants. Á Vegetative cuttings require a minimum quantity of light to provide the energy for root initiation and development. Light intensities below this minimum result in little or no root development, leading to a delayed crop or rooting failure.
Conversely, too much light can bleach leaves and reduce root formation due to excessive stress on the cuttings. Estimated Reading Time: 10 mins. Jul 27, i have used all kinds of different lights. but have found that t5's work the best. you should keep the light on your clones 24 hours a day (this makes them root and grow faster) the only reason to do 18 would be if you wanted to save a little on the electric bill.
