A customer has a question or concerns and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks
“My seeds popped and I planted them as instructed but the plants died within days. I’m using low watt (600) MH lights and I’m using ocean blend fox farm soil. Lost about 5 of the White Widow, 6 of the Super Silver Haze. Some of the seeds were tiny. This is the second cycle of order I made and we’ve been growing about 2 years inside. This is really the first issue we’ve had except Gold Leaf, did not produce near what was advertised.”
Strain (type, bag seed): northern lights, white widow, super silver haze
Soil in pots, hydroponic, or coco?: soil in peat cups
PH of runoff or solution in reservoir?: 6.2 ph
What is strength of nutrient mix? EC, or TDS: seedling/week 1 from fox farm dirty dozen
Indoor or outdoor: indoor
Light system, size?: ipower 600 watt set on low
Temps day, night: lo 70, hi 77
Humidity day, night 68 to 75
Ventilation system (yes/no, size): window ac, oscilating fans
I’m with the boys here but will help if possible
I grown all the strain mentioned except for the northern lights and I used ffof with them
I’m thinking they started in peat pods and then transfer into the ffof @Myfriendis410
With that many seedling dieing
I’m leaning towards over watering or under watering
Pictures may help us help you
So you water or mist the sprouts ?
Good point on the bulbs @peachfuzz
I’ll ask this as well room temps for sprout are you using a propagation tray ? Or just domes
Plus; a 600 watt mh bulb for 12x12 room? On low? I have no experience with ipower lights, but even the high end 600’s are going to be 4’x4’ max. And using mh bulb all the way through will definitely lack bud development.
You could easily blame low yield on lights, not to mention the other stuff.
Got to go along with everyone. Unfortunately probably operator error. Without pics & knowing if you already used nutes to early or over or underwatering, just dont know. Ive grown four different strains from ilgm successfully & never been happier. Sorry youre not having same.
Sounds to me like OP used peat pots, not the peat pellets. Filled them with FF of some kind, probably with nutrients and they OD’d on fertilizer. Might have overwatered them ,too. Without pics we’ll probably never know.
