First time, long time. Figured I’d start a grow journal for my new batch of beans of which I’ve just potted 5 of 8 yesterday.
Seeds: 4 X Super Skunk and 4 x White Widow autoflowers from ILGM
Medium: 70% coco 30% perlite
Nutrients: Advanced Nutrients coco grow & bloom
Lights: 3 x Viparspectre P600 600W LED Full spectrum
First hurdle was not ordering enough soil for all 8 pots, so I had to germinate 5 seeds Sunday evening, 2 of which sprouted pretty quickly (I think) by Tuesday morning, the others by Wednesday and the last 3 just went in to germinate yesterday too. Popped them in their forever home - I went straight into a 30L fabric pot as I didn’t want the stress of repotting them from rooters, solo cups, etc which is what I’d read I should do as a first time auto grower. I gave the medium a good soaking with 0.7 EC, RO water using 1ml calmag/litre and 4ml per litre of the part A and B advanced nutrients. 5.7 (ish) PH. Now just planning to give them the same strength nutes using a syringe to keep the roots moist, and a light misting daily.
Pleased to say I think two of them are doing quite well and have come up already! Of the 3 planted yesterday, 1 is starting to come through also but still doesn’t have it’s first set of two leaves.
Where I live it’s winter now so quite dry, so I’ve had to put some cups over them to increase the humidity as it’s only 50% in the tent and I’ve had to run a mini heater to keep the heat up around 22c.
Is this good for 2 days growth? Anything I should change? I’m a bit worried about over watering so any coco growers with tips on how to nurse seedlings welcome!
Love the forum and will keep tracking progress here.
