Also add some perlite to the mix to give extra drainage, and make sure your planters are self watering/ draining

Hey @Gweed, welcome to ILGM! Looks like you’re off to a good start. CFLs will be perfect for your seedlings, they’ll love them. I’d start by reading some of the guides here. @PharmerBob has you covered on the basics. Fire away with any questions you have, and the site is usually pretty active so someone will typically get back to you pretty quickly. Party at your place in 6 months! :smile:

The seed starting pods, my first grow after i removed the stem and roots from the pots i found that the netting around the seed starters inhibited my root growth!
I still use them but i remove the netting before i transplant! Remove the netting just transplant the soil along with seedling. My thoughts good luck and welcome


@Gweed Yeeee hawww!

I wrench for a living and love to grow.

I’m watching!


Ahhh, the name makes sense now! “Sh*t, car won’t start…call AAA!” :+1:
