Wow, quite a bit higher than I expected… I made the same switch to coco and jacks, night and day difference

Edit: at 1st glance I thought that was FF HF… I use canna coco

I was surprised it was this high and generally that’s the FFOF. There’s no telling I could have a got a hotter than normal bag :joy::love_you_gesture:

Yeah… just so I’m right about this, that slurry test was coco loco?

Yes, coco loco and in spite of how high it was the seedlings had no issues. It’s my favorite FF mediums and my go to other than straight coco :love_you_gesture:

I know other growers will frown at this suggestion, but I use “hot” potting soil all the time: “Miracle Grow Organics 2X”.

Instead of switching to another soil, I just leave the pH of the water at about 7.3 during the seedling stage. This seems to limit the uptake in nutrients and they don’t “burn” with too many nutes when they are so sensitive like that.

Then later when they are in full veg, I pH the water down to 6.5. Then later at 4 to 5 weeks when the fill the grow vag, I feed with Jacks again at 6.5 pH. Easy peasy for me.

Just another weapon/option to keep in your grow arsenal. Seems to have worked for me on multiple grows.

Good luck regardless of what you do!
This stuff is fun!!

Do autogrow seeds take 3 or more days to germinate? I haven’t seen my seed poke through the soil.

@ebbnflo hello. I don’t grow auto anymore, but i
assume they are much like photo. I have had some germ in 24 hrs and 1 of mine took about 10 days, bur she is great now.

Thanks for the insight.

Hey, this is where I’m at. Have I messed something up? I’m 4 weeks in, and from what I’ve see elsewhere she should be further along. I did have some issues with a leggy germ period. Have I done something that ill effect the yield or anything? The discoloration is due to lack of water. That went away immediately after being watered.
