No issues here, but I’m pretty new to the site.
you shouldnt need to water a seedling every couple days! Thats way too much! Trickle some water around it, and wait till the soil dries out a bit like maybe 5 days or so? They really dont need much water as babies, they barely have root hairs yet! The reason to water in a circle away from the stem is to let the roots work for the water. Im also not huge fan of cup over the seedling thing. For a couple reasons… it difuses the light so much that the plant gets leggy as heck, second a seedling should have a light breeze( small fan ) to help it gain some strength. Humidity is not really an issue once they bust ground… in nature they get morning dew then hot sun all day, then cool night etc. They can handle some dry air just fine. Go to Afghanistan, its dry as a bone! Weed loves it there!
AKs get a shot glass of water bout every 2 or 3 days which I don’t think is much, domes get sprayed a bit when they are put over the seed and checked on everyday, took two days to bust through, now they are sitting in another grow tent under a Marshydro light with no dome and temps are right about 74F, both tents have fans and I’m only getting a 4-5 degree drop in temps when lights are out, 18-6 schedule. Watering is away from stem but it does creep in a bit. I do like to keep the humidity at around 60% when they are young then decrease bout 5 degrees every other week, seems to work pretty good for me. If I see transpiration then I get the humidity level down even more.
nice! I never dome my dope! I let it breathe. I have seen so many leggy plants just curl up and die or people use sticks or coat hangers, maybe bury the stem 3 inches down so the plant stands up lol. I figure these plants should be required to do a fitness test! Wind tunnel test and be able to withstand a gale forced wind! If they can then they will hold your buds up easier!
Yea I know what ya mean domes come off as soon as the bust through and then they go under the light, usually I wait til they have a couple nodes before transplant but those AK’s grew like that over night so I went ahead and thought in the big pots. Roots were about 4-5 inches long on all 3. They’ll be good. Fans are blowing in each tent.
I stoped using domes as well. To much water would drip on my leaves and seemed to stunt the growth. I only dome clones. Lol
Only keep them on there til seed pops through then they go under light, no dome. Dome is only on there to keep moisture in.
Well I have another plant that was given to me, a Northern Lights clone, I’ll stick in the tent with the White Widows, any special instruction in growing a clone? Don’t know the age.
You can grow it out however you want or flip it straight to flower and let it go. Looks healthy!
I was wanting to veg it for a while until the WW’s catch up a little, will that be ok?
Yeah shouldn’t be a problem at all. You can do lst or top it if it’s start getting too leggy.
Ok I’ll re-pot and do some LST
One week on the AK’s and 4 days since WW went into cups, sprouted acouple days ago, Northern Lights clone doing good also, gonna re-pot it maybe tonight or tomorrow
Alrite buddy I’m stoned had a couple of beers. Which one are you repotting I get lost
The clone, Northern Lights, last pic
Got Ya! LOL
When the time comes my friend and you want some really good sativa ( yield might be lower ) the Blue Haze is a really pleasant for quality.
Thanks I’ll keep that one in mind, might have to pick some seeds up
Man it has gotten real hard to update on my journal, photos won’t load, I can barely get this text to upload
It Is Bad
