Germination auto top

Howdy , how often will the shell of a seed top it self by taking the cotyledons off it of when it emerges from the soil ? I’m going to see what happens by keeping her going , but I’m aware my efforts will probably be futile . Auto Blue Dream, Straight ph 5.8 H2O , seedling mat , one cfl bulb . Thanks for any input


One of my girls in my current grow had a similar issue. The shell didn’t come off and was kind of wonky. I pulled It off and it ripped the starter leaves off. It only had a little baby leaf to start with for like a week. Once it grew out a little and got an actual leaf it took off.

Are the cotyledons missing or just haven’t unfolded? The husk doesn’t remove the cotyledons unless they broke ground with the husk still attached and it was removed damaging those :love_you_gesture: if in fact the cotyledons are gone, keep plenty of humidity around them and misting periodically. The leaves feed the plant through humidity until the roots take over

They gone , my camera can’t get that zoom , but they are in the shell in the rooter . There is however a small sliver of a leaf like structure off the tip , which give me hope

How about that eh ! A seedling can decapitate itself , and then a growth will emerge out the stem preaching about reality. I shall name you Kuato

The question was : are there any methods that extend the veg state in auto flowers, even by a little bit ? E.G. keeping the nutrient schedule on growth or going straight 24 hr lights ? Or is all this nonsense thinking and the auto is named auto for a reason and just let her do it’s thing ?

No way to extend the veg period, a stall or stunting from issues but that’ll produce a runt in flower. Most of my autos start flowering around 26-32 days in veg not counting the 14 day seedling period :love_you_gesture:

Thanks for the confirmation on that , it has made it this far cause I took your advice and misted otherwise I’d probably aborted. I’ll post again to show the developments of a runt, and who knows maybe it turns out to be a beast after I dance the line of nutrient burn . I’m pretty ignorant on autos so it will probably be a futile attempt. Thanks again for the input (the dates are especially helpful -didn’t know if people included the 14 day seedling with all the timelines thrown around )
