Cannabis Cultivator Virgin - Starting with the ILGM Autos Mix Pack 2.0

Week 1

Hi all,

Here is an update after I got my seeds on Wednesday 11.6 I soaked them into Mason jars for about 22 hours. Started around 2am on Thursday 11.7. Then, on Friday 11.8 around 12am I transferred them into paper towels. I left them in the paper towels for about two days. Which it would have been Saturday 11.9 and today 11.10. During these two days; I made sure to kept the paper towels moist and not running water. I also sprayed water into the bag and blew into it as though to form a dome with the big plastic sealed bags. Today, Sunday I have transferred them into their first stop. I tried to put two LED 20WATTS red and blue lights but I could only find the one you see in the below photo. Would this work @dbrn32?

Bubble Gum after roughly 48 hours into the paper towel.

OG Kush same time period as above

Unfortunately, I could not get a shot of the Jack Herer because I got too excited and started to transfer without documenting. I apologized about that :smile: I’ll make sure to pay more attention to documenting each step.

Here is their first stop:

Temps are between 70°F - 75°F
Humidity are between 75 RH - 80 RH

I don’t see any lights in pictures? Do you have a model number I can look up?

Setup looks good a dome and a sensor for each pot very well done.

Now as for the light… I will let @dbrn32 comment because I am sorta intrigued to see what he would suggest otherwise.
Looks like they are 20w max and have a mix of red/blue spectrum, may be okay to start but I imagine you will have to either buy another set or just upgrade to something a bit better before they will out grow those domes.

Remeber you have about 30 days of veg time for those autos so do the best you can to baby them for the first 30 days and give them exactly what they need.

@Nicky thank you for your suggestions. Yes, I plan to only keep them in here for about a week or so then I will move them up to their second stop where they will stay there for about 2 more weeks with 65W LEDs Samsung HLG where they will get 20/4 light for veggs and then once they get to about 6" to 8" or so I will transfer them to the main veg/flowering room where they will have my most expensive equipment. Lighting is 190 W LEDs full spectrum from Nextlight Core, I’ll have the Inkbird for humidity and temps control, demumifier, humidifier, heater, and AC, fan, filer, etc.

They should work fine for starting plants. You will obviously want bigger lights to flower with though.

@dbrn32 how long should I wait until I should be concerned with no seeing the main two leaves?

How long since its sprouted? And how close are your lights?

@dbrn32 I saw the first signs of roots on Friday when I put them in the paper towels. They continued to grow their tail for another Two days and I transferred them into the pots yesterday around 10pm. Lights are about 4"

Gonna be a few days I would think
