I found an old (2+ years) Auto White Berry seed and decided to grow it for the very first time.
Over three weeks passed since I planted my sprout in 2/1 soil and perlit mixture. I water it every 3-4 days, started adding Guano Bat fertilizer to boost root growth.
So far I’ve kept it outside in a direct sun for about 12 hrs/day and then for few hrs under my regular desk lamp. Some of these days could be less than 12 hrs sunlight.
Today I transferred it to a big pot, 50soil/50coco, installed a growbox and put the plant under 300 W mixed (veg+flower) CFL light and will keep it 18/6.
The thing is that when I compare it when other people’s growth - it seems very slow.
I assume the reason is probably old seed, but maybe there is any other factor?
What worries me the most is that it hasn’t developed any real leaves yet, and I noticed a white hair growing on top.
I don’t know if it’s normal or it turned to flowering mode because of light deficiency?
Any advises would be very helpful. I’ve been reading alot about growing, but as I said this is my first time ever and I have lots of doubts.
