@MAXHeadRoom sound like are on the same page. Two weeks is the end of the month, give or take. But it would make counting a little easier. Lol.
Yes both toped, both sprouted new nodes, one of them 3. Pics above.
@bob31 hello there, new face for me. Thanks for your input. My soil situation is a little vague. In the uk we don't seem to print the ingredients on the sodding bags. Right at the top of this thread is the seedling verdant of the soil I used, you'll see it's numbered"1", for seedling. It worked very well so yesterday as i went from a small 6" pot to the 27liter pot (fabric bag), I opted to stay with the brand I used, but the number "3" version.
When I reported /planted I mixed the number 3 soil with perlite then gave the plant a half feed of big bloom and grow big ph:d Down to 6.7.
I gave then 2.5litres each, (about 1/3 a us gallon), two days later, I gave them another 2.5 litres each. well just under as I got run off, of which I tested.
The number 1 soil and number 3 soil share identical bags, with identical information, or lack of. It's more marketing blerb. But I t has a 1 in the corner, the other a 3. (there is also a 2 but I skipped that bag). if you want to see it I took a picture of the marketing blerb, its above near the top I think.
So hope that helps. Hopefully the soil is just rich as it's new, and the plant will eat it up. If it's still a worry I can always put in the bath and flush it all out. But would rather not.
