I apologize for the length of this but I am new and this forum has been very helpful to me so I am going to lean in and grab some more help.
I am 2 weeks in and my Solo Cup plants are about 1/2" away from the rim of the cup. I need to think about transplanting very soon (within 2 weeks maximum). I live on the west coast of Michigan, USA so I am at least 6 weeks away from putting the plants outside full time but there is no way the wife is going to agree with 7 gallon fabric pots in the basement so I will go with larger clay pots in the meantime. I ordered a new LED light which will work for the bigger plants.
With all that being said here are my questions:
Did I start too early or is this a normal problem?
If I keep with 18 hours of LED every day until going outside will I have a smooth transition?
If I go outside in early May can I simply bring the plants into my heated garage at night?
What is the coldest temperature that a healthy plant can handle?
I have decided on a 3-1 mixture of FFOF and Perlite for soil and I am considering the FF trio of nutrients. I need something simple. I am a rookie. Any thoughts?
Thanks for everything,
