Hello all,
Today i have bought carpet plant seed used substrate soil using dry method . Keeping it humid . But confused regarding light. Should i give them 24*7 direct light or 10hours light? Can indirect led light is also ok?

Unfortunately, nearly all the carpet seeds ordered online are scams and are not the species they say they are. They might be Hygrophila polysperma, which is not a carpet plant and is a federally listed noxious weed in the US, but they also may not even be a true aquatic plant and will die when you flood the tank.

That issue aside, generally seedlings do the best with direct light and a dedicated dark period.
