First time grower help needed please

Hi, this is my first time growing gorilla glue seeds I feel that they are growing to slow I germinated them in water. I planted them in soil on April 28. I noticed that they have yellow spots on the first leaves and the second leaves are starting to get dry from the tip of the leaves.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you’re growing outdoor?
The spots on the bottom looks like water spots, nothing to worry about.
The tips look burnt to me, and soil looks dry. How and when do you water?

Welcome to the forum , I see you relying so I’m waiting to comment.

thanks for your quick response, yes I am growing outdoor I am in the central valley California the sun here is pretty strong. I was watering my plants every day with a spray bottle but I started to water them every 2 days. It looks dry on the top but I dug the soil like an inch an it was pretty moist. I leave them in the sun with a net on top for shade and after 6 when the sunlight isn’t strong I leave them in direct sunlight.

thank you, I am new grower thank you for the quick response.

Ok I agree with you they do seem small I believe mine were like 4 inches by 2 weeks in. I also got to ask about a dome, the reason I ask is seedlings are establishing roots and until they do they absorb moisture thru the leaves. I also personally watered mine twice a day a couple sprays at the base and a couple in the dome. Next question what soil are you using?

Ok so it’s a mix, I used straight frog. So good soil, that’s not a issue. Then that goes back to water like @Zee mentioned. And the dome I mentioned . There are other concerns like water ph that are covered by the support ticket. Also there’s water type ro , tap, spring. Because tap water contains chlorine which is not good for plants.

I am sorry for the unresponded answers I am new to this.

I am using water from water mills. I am only using happy frog to start once the get bigger I will use ocean forest on a 5 gal bucket.

It’s OK it will cut you off soon anyways because they only allow so many responses at first. So from what I see most of what your doing is right. It’s probably just the issues we mentioned. Sounds like you kinda know what your doing , you have made less mistakes than most of us when we started. Make the small adjustments and tell us your status say by the end of next week.


I have another question I was wondering if these seeds are normal size or are they too small.

Seem fine some of mine are tiny but plants are not so.

this is the best one I have so far no yellow marks and isn’t getting dry I think it was too much water.
