A question from a fellow grower:
The seeds arrived quickly and discretely…A1 service…thank you!
Now I need some help with them! PLEASE! I don’t want to lose them!
After they sprouted 4/20/16
I put them in 2 inch rookwool cubes while I assembledmy hydroponic container
15 gal tote with 5 inch net pots and clay pellets
In 3x5 room well vented, temp stays around 80 lights on, 72 73 at lights off
I have two pumps in the tote with 3 tubes feeding each plant
I have two air stones also
4- 48 inch 6500k fl over plants at about three inches
I ran plain water on them for a couple of days while I was waiting for my ph meter to arrive
4/27 my ph meter arrived, ph was way too high at 8.5
4/28 got ph down to 5.8
added high miracles grow feed 12-4-8 to a ppm of 600
these pics are of tonight and the seedlings are still tiny, like 1.5 inches and little spindly things
I leave the pumps running 24/7
lights are 18 on 6 0ff
I researched a lot about hydroponics before I started
I could try to grow them in pot in soil out on my deck, we live in a fairly private area, but I would constantly be worried about them when we were gone for the weekend in summer heat
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
