Got my seeds! Waiting on my nutes!

I’m so excited to get my seeds! Still waiting on my nutrients. I had to do something to get back into this forum🤣, so I bought real seeds! Don’t want no more boys. I surmised my first one turned because of the garage door opening all the time when it was freezing cold. He went over the fence…
Waiting to start until I have everything.
Gonna be fun on top of the 30 odd houseplants I already have.

Get your seeds germnated while waiting for your nutes @Jeansnbootsgal

Germinate your seeds, plant them in seedling soil. Then plant that in fox farms ocean forest. You won’t need nutes for at least a month, maybe 2, (might need cal mag though).

Posted the same pic twice, sry

For the gnats, you can try Diatomaceous Earth, a rubbing alcohol and water solution, or a h2o2 and water solution. Or all of them.

@blackthumbbetty I took care of the gnats with Bergmans bug spray! Only took one spray!

@hungrybud They are only 2 weeks old, gonna wait a little longer, dont want to shock them with moving to a too big pot!

Bergmans spray will only kill the flyers, its the larvae around your roots that does the damage.

Just advising what i do these are 21 days old.

The girls are almost 5 weeks old. Repotted and on nutes…which is where my question is. How in the Sam hell do you measure 2/3 tsp? I posted a pic of my measuring spoons. Those are all I have. Can someone explain how I can do it with these?

I tried to edit my earlier post, but I waited too long! My girls are in FF soil in 5 gal fabric pots. They will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. I am on the second of Bergmans nutrients. I cannot figure out how to measure 2/3 of a tsp! I have pictured my measuring spoons above, I have googled and cannot figure out the right amount! Can someone help me? I also don’t know how often to feed nutes or when to start flowering nutes. Isn’t it too early to start flowering nutes? At 6 weeks?
I topped them 3 days ago, the first time. They are bent because I was rotating them due to only having one light. I installed another light yesterday. They are better today. I will post pictures next. Any suggestions are helpful and appreciated!
I think they look great! I’m so excited!!!

It’s not clear what you need that measurement for, but this will get you really close. I see that your smallest measuring tool is 1/8 of a teaspoon. 5 scoops of that should do you just fine:
2/3 teaspoon = .666 teaspoon
5 * 1/8 teaspoon = .625 teaspoon
