Sup. First time grower with some concerns & looking for advice (thanks in advance)
OG Kush Auto Flowerer (seeds from ILGM) - Hydro intent once rockwool plug has been outgrown by root system
Germination via distilled water bath in total darkness
-tap root sprouted in under 72 hours
Sprouted seed placed directly in rockwool plug saturated in 5.5 pH water, with 1/4 mL FLORAGRO & 1mL UC roots nutrients dissolved in 1 Gal of distilled water (668 PPM)
-lighting: 25W T5 CFL (24hr) & 12W LED (24 HR for additional blue light). Lighting placed approx 4" above the seedling.
-Temp & Humidity: temp steady between 68-74F. Humidity between 68-77%
-heat mat used during germination and through day 4 of the seedling stage - removed due to high & unpredictable Temps (80F - highest reading that triggered removal)
Seedling sprouted out of the rockwool quickly, and begun growing. Growth has recently halted and my main point of concern is that the seed husk hasn’t spread out to form the artificial 1st set of leaves to begin photosynthesis production.
The seedling is currently on Day 7 since being placed in the rockwool plug. Rockwool plug sits inside a humidity dome inside a grow tent.
I attempted to alter the lighting schedule to 21/3 but the darkness and unpredictable weather where I reside caused the temp to drop to 60 F when that was trialed. Back to 24 hr light
I’ve been conscious to not over water, especially with the retention of the rockwool medium providing maybe a spray or two per day of the same solution described above via plant sprayer
Do I have cause for concern if the seedling hasn’t progressed much over the last couple of days?
