Thanks my humidifier is already on order..Flourescents are great for seedlings, i would hold off on the led. You have gotten some good advice so far and putting the clear cup over the seed will help increase humidity tremendously to aid germination, the seed needs moisture. I soak seeds in water til they sink, 24-48 hours, then plant them. Easy to place the seed point up, then cover with more soil, inch loose and add water. Soaking the seed gives the kernel the water to germ and sprout. Your boiler room humidity is probably wicked dry, so once they outgrow the cup you will need a humidifier, gallon or two/day. Good luck.
