Good morning growers. New to the group first time posting. Got some questions but first the facts.
Strain; (3)Critical Purple Autos
Age from Sprout: 2-2.5 days
Soil in/Size of Pots: FFHF, 5gal pots
How often do you water and how do you determine when to do so: just germed and sprouted. I water whenever the starter cube looks dry.
PH of water and runoff or solution in reservoir: haven’t tested ph
What is strength of nutrient mix? EC, or TDS: N/A
Indoor: 2x4x5 grow tent
Light system, size and height from plants: 600w Phlizon grow light. Not sure how far away, after reading a few posts before typing this I think I’m too close.
Temps; Day, Night: 77-82
Humidity; Day, Night: roughly 54%
Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size: arriving tomorrow, 4” iPower 190 CFM vent kit. At the moment currently small bedside fan with tent vent open. Will post pics.
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier: not yet
Co2; Yes, No: arriving tomorrow.
Ok. So I germed them in the pots, in starter cube buried flush in center, covered with a glass and left it in the dark on the heating pad. All three popped and sprouted. The first one stood up right away and started to show first fan leaves. The second was curling up with the fan leaves as if to stand up. The third sprouted out of pod and curled up. That was the first day so say Sunday night. Yesterday morning watered before going to work and pretty much left em under the light. Didn’t water again until about 10/11 last night and noticed the third pod was too dry, watered(sprayed) em accordingly and left em alone. Cleaned up my tent a bit(got a power strip so doing a lot of unplugging. Accidentally hit the first sprout with a cord, not the part you plug in) This morning checked on them again and noticed the plant I fit with the cord is missing a fan leaf, yet the two in the middle are starting to grow? Plant looks like it wants to wilt but still strong looking. The second is standing straight up with the two extra leaves growing, the third is curled up still jusssst above the starter cube. Here are my questions.
What can I do for the one that hasn’t stood up yet?
I read here that seedlings should be buried up until the first fan leaves, should I make the hole for the cubes deeper and bury them so that just their “heads” show?
How far away should the light be, and is that from the top of the pot or the top of the plant?
I went out and brought the FF trio package but have read that my plants won’t need any “food” until after about 2-3wks since I’m using FFHF. Is this true? And then once time has lapsed, how do I feed them, do I use one or all three at once every other feeding, etc?
I’ve also noticed the second plants “stalk”(?) is starting to fuzz, what is that? I’ll take a pic when I get home. And finally, what can I do to produce a healthy harvest?
Thanks in advance for your answers and sorry this was so long. I’m just excited to finally be growing🤣
