New Beginner Grower- looking for tips and pointers

Hi everyone!

I’m new to the forum and to growing and just wanted to share a little of my experience so far.

I started last week with 3 Autofl Critical Mass CBD and 3 G13. I dropped these into a glass of distilled water, and within 24 hours, had 2 sprouts (1 Critical mass, and 1 G13). I removed these with sanitized tweezers and planted these in a homemade organic compost mix. 24 hours later, the remainder sprouted and those were planted as well.

(Side note- while I was planting, to my horror I knocked over one of the pots with the recently planted CBD seed on my patio. I looked through the dirt but couldn’t find it- so I piled up the spilled dirt and continued to water. The next day- I saw the sprout, so I transplanted it- this is the smaller sprout in the purple container)

As of now, all six plants have sprouted, and I have all of the seedlings in a ventilated seed starter container, with a CFL Grow light, and a warming mat. I am spraying with distilled water once per day, running light for 18 hours/six off. I have ordered a 48 x 24 x 60 grow tent, small clip fan, soil ph monitor, and have a 600w LED light that I will move to once the plants are a little bigger.

Any advice on feeding, general suggestions, fertilizers, etc welcome!

Thank you both! It’s surprised me how fast they are growing. Yesterday morning the three seedlings On top hasn’t sprouted yet, and when I checked yesterday evening they were pushed up about an inch. Now all are getting their first set of leaves. It’s exciting to watch :heart:

As a first time grower once, I completely understand! Feel free to share as often as you’d like. I typically update once a week in my journal.
