Hi,

Day 3 of sprout
Auto ak, blueberry, Acapulco gold, cookie and skunk #1

Light fan

Ph unknown atm

I had the light too far, just fixed it and put light fan on them. Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks

Welcome they look okay but don’t keep them too wet right now

you could put maybe a half an inch of soil on top if you want, I recommend small wooden kebob-style skewers to support seedlings if needed, hope this helped

  • best wishes!

Thanks so much. Just did as you suggested.

You’re welcome glad I could help! …I have that same heater, works well

I would be giving those plants in that situation maybe 5-10 milliliters every 12 hours or so but check it before you add it and keeping the fan on very lightly is a good idea

you look good :blush:
Welcome @Paranorman gave solid advice
Happy growing bro :+1::v:

Thanks @Countryboyjvd1971 and @Paranorman means tons to hear that. I just spent a week and a half reading as much as I could while developing a strategy. I find this a really uplifting experience it’s probably something I have wanted to do for about 20 years but never did :slight_smile:

@Paranorman gave you good advice. But you really need to transplant them into larger pots or into their final grow pot.
and bury them an inch from the top of there leaves.
This will give them much better support and better root system. You may want to invest in a light for vegg .a 400 watt hps and a 600w or even 800 watt hps for flower. here is a link. I use these for my grows.

You really need one of these

@garrigan62 here is the update. I was plannng on transplanting when the food leaves fell off meaning when they get to veg.

Then to 3 gallon before I change the light cycle for flower. For that I am getting full spectrum led light. Does that sound like a good plan?

Yes that’s perfect. veg for 4 to 6 weeks before switching to flower unless your growing auto’s. then they’ll flower when there ready on there own.
