Hello all. I finally have decided to dive into this crazy hobby, and get started growing my own medicine. I bought a 5-pack of Critical Mass CBD auto seeds from ILGM, and when they got here, I was so excited to get started, I threw them into some water, to get them started with germination. I think I may have jumped the gun a bit too early, because I am starting to realize I may have 2 significant problems already. It’s only been 5 days since my girls poked their heads out of the soil (all 5 popped - Good job, ILGM!!).
Here’s the potential issues:
After soaking the seeds for 24 hours or so, I put them into 4 inch peat cups filled with potting soil. After reading more and more, I have come to realize that the common wisdom is that you should plant seeds directly into their final containers, when it comes to autos. So here are my questions…is transplanting them into the final contains going to drastically hurt them? Should I do it now, or in a week or two, when they are stronger?
My grow space is only (for now) a generic 2x4x60 tent I bought on Ebay - it came with a (also generic) blurple light advertised as 1500w ‘equivalent’. Going to correct the lighting situation very soon (thinking either a Spider Farmer sf2000 or a Mars Hydro TSL2000), but here the other question: Will the 2x4 be big enough to allow 5 autoflower plants to thrive - or will they be crowded out? Planning on moving them to 3 gallon fabric pots. I do plan on adding 2 more tents eventually (both 4x4’s) and start a perpetual harvest system, but need to work up to that slowly, as I am on a limited budget.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
