Very first day above the surface.
The most important word, PATIENCE. good luck with it.
Following the grow! I learn more with each cycle of my grow. Ask lots of questions, so many knowledgeable people on the forum.
Day 2. Forgot to mention she is an auto juicy blue. Im assuming that she is a cross between blueberry and juicy fruit. Second attempt with this strain, the first attempt failed due to lighting issues. New light and better results.
Day 3 a.m. (im going to start doing morning and night daily pictures)
I built up from a 2x2x2 to a 2x2x4 with the top being easily detached to raise.
Day 3 P.m. No major changes. Still looking good Imo. She got a watering today.
New organic soil for her. Will post pictures soon
Looking good imo, the first 10-14 days always seems slow to me. Then once you get the first set of “true leaves” they just rocket as long as you are treating them right.
@Bandwidth Oh good. I worry too much sometimes.
Day 5. Slowly but surely getting bigger.
Ph level a bit low though. Not giving her any nutes either. My guess is around 5.3 (my ph meter is not digital)
Not that I’m an expert(blew my first try, now in my 2nd) by any stretch, but I remember the first 2 weeks or so being slow, then growth just going nuts. Keep them alive and the environment good, and methinx you’ll be fine.
I personally like seed domes, myself. But I don’t think that would change how fast they grow. They’d just keep you from making a pot for a dead seed.
She is under a dome at all times except for when i take pictures and to water her. In about a week ill be taking that off. Just depends on how big shes gotten at that point.
Early day 7: still at a low ph… shes not big enough for nutes though. @MotorMage any thoughts on how to raise the ph for a seedling?
Oooh… I’m the wrong one to ask, especially once they’re in soil. Mostly here for moral support!
I would say that they still look about about the right size for a week. If the PH is low, it’s not “too low”.
