Posting here, as I am unsure how to send a message directly tot he moderator -
Quite experienced grower. Did my research. Popped my Blue Auto’s 14 days ago. Put them directly into 4 1/2 (approx.) breathable re-usable shopping bags. They came up, are an inch tall, and there they sit. I can’t see any growth. I do think I over-watered the first watering, but, essentially they look incredibly healthy. Turgid to the touch (i.e. they are ridged when pushed), leaves look beautiful. Never wilted, or droopy. Only the two smallest have the slightest bit of yellowing on the first set of non-true leaves. #1 has bluing veins in the first set of true leaves. No bugs of any kind. New potting soil, unammended. Feed once with 1/8 MG. Temp mostly 85-90 F. day, 15 drop at night (I read where, under LED’s the ambient temp ought to be 85-95, because there is no 10 degree hot spot under the lights, as with HID). They all have the first set of 7-9 fingered leaves opening, but no growth. I am HOPING that they are spending this time filling such large pots with roots. So, soil, water, 20/4 cycle, all seems reasonable. I have a ph meter that will be here in a week or so, but my water is filtered from the municipal source, so chlorine and such are removed.
I think I did have the LED’s a bit close for the first three days. Pro Grow 260 at 12". Now at about 16", both spectrum’s on. In a 2’ x 2’ enclosure. Please do share any thoughts you might have.
My first auto grow. I an determined to master these, as I am intrigued by the short cycle. Thanks, Brother!
