“I am having some trouble with the blueberry seeds I purchased, so far eight of them have died. The first five I planted in potting soil after having put them in water for 24 hours. I kept them under the T5 light for twenty-four hours a day and planted them about a 1/4 deep. The temperature ranged from 75-85. After seven days not one plant came up. The next five I put in a paper towel; they germinated, I planted them 1/4 inch deep. Three to them came up with the seed attached and died. One has survived and the other two haven’t come up, but it’s only been three days. The plants died. I didn’t take a photo of the dead plants.”
- The strain is blueberry. Likes to die alot.
- The soil is fine; the ph is 6.
- I am not using nutrients on seedlings that last only a couple of days; it burns their roots.
- It’s an indoor setup.
- Those are fluorescent T5 lights and worked just fine.
- The humidity ranges from 45-60; I check it every day.
- I am not running an exhaust fan, currently as the plants die before they get to that point.
8 No, there isn’t an over abundance of CO2.
