GG4 auto first grow. Any help is appreciated

These will be grown in 3 gallon cloth pots with happy frog soil. Lights are california solar extreme 550, mars ts1000 and a cheap purple all in a 5x5.

My heat sticks at around 76-78. Humidity I’ve been able to control from 20%-90%.

On day 4 of seedling. Trying not to water much but my soil was bone dry.

Does this look ok for 4 days in? Watering only ph’d water no nutes.

Looks good for 4 days, you may want to rethink the size of the final pots, not sure if you have yet or not.

10 gallons are nice sizes for your grow area…

Got 4 of those in a 5x5 and your all set

Hey thanks for the response. Ya I had already gotten these and had a smaller tent but decided to upgrade for my first run. I have them all set and ready for 5 plants. Next run I will most likely go bigger. I just want to get through this one lol. Forcing myself not to water is harder than it sounds hah.

your seedling looks good, seedlings takes very little water. When you do give it a little drink try to water in about a 6 inch circular pattern around the plant. That helps the roots to stretch out looking for moisture. Good luck welcome to the community

Thank you! Yeah I do a light mist close to the plant then pour a small litte mote around the plant a few inches or so out so roots will go looking. Gave them a decent water this morning so prob wont water again til tomorrow night.

One thing I’d do is take that filter off until it’s needed. The humidifier will shorten the life of it and would be a shame since it’s not doing anything at this point in time anyway.

Seedlings like high humidity so what you could do is cut a 20oz bottle and use the bottom as a dome. Spray water in with a water bottle doing that you wouldnt have to use your humidifier right now and would give you a little more steady humidity and not drop down so low

Soil looks too wet. You want to water in a circle closer to the outer edge of pot to make roots de search for water

I only sprayed lightly on the plant. The rest was done heavier around the plant a few inches out. I took the day 4 pic right after I watered. Letting it dry a couple days. It really shot her growth up overnight.
