Very clever the way you were able to adjust the plant heights under the lights.

Just wanted to add something on the hardening off.  I didn't do that.  I'm in zone 10 and put some stuff out a few weeks ago.  A lot of stuff.  Like a lot.   Laughing  And I was too busy(lazy) to move them back and forth so I just left them all outside.  But I justified it that my patio gets a lot of shade.  Plus I was going to be up-potting them so I wasn't sure if I was going to be killing them anyway?  I dunno, I can justify laziness if I try.  But they survived not hardening off.  Then they survived up potting.  So I'm happy.  Very Happy
So I thought maybe being in Southern Cali, maybe you didn't -Have- to harden them off either?

My guess is that it is more important to keep from sun scald at first.  A light cover of cheese cloth for filtered shade should handle that.

I took mine outside one day and started planting them the next day.  I'm in zone 8b-9a.  Now I'm trying to get them all mulched.

Turan has a point about some light shade (cheese cloth, sheers).  Boy we folks in temperate areas just have it rough. Laughing
