Newbie here and needing good advice, plz


#1

Ok so like I’m so new to any this great new hobby. I gardening but wanted to branch out and try. I’m not sure if this is even the right way to post. I took a photo of what, I think, is slowing my growth and getting the PH right. I’m an indoor grower with a tent…got hooked. I love it! Ok look over it and see what I need to do. Plz any advice on what I could do now or just let it keep going. I had to remove some of the first leaves because of what they looked like and thought I fixed it by doing so

Your plants look fine but you need some hand cream for those dry hands :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I think it looks healthy. Just try to leave it be for awhile and let the roots become more established.

The first few days i was just watering enough to cover the top of the soil. I did this 2 times a day since they broke ground. Yesterday I was told thats not enough water for them and last night, started to add a bit more water. I use a spray bottle to soak the soil but not enough to run out the bottom of those little square containers. Given they are only about 1.5 inches cubed, should the water be running out of the bottom of the container or just enough to soak the soil ?

OK @bluethumb two things i see off the bat your girls are streaching to much try to reach the lights lower your lights and get sticks to hold up sprouts
Soil should be keeped moist not wet when this young so no water running out bottom yet
You dont want to over water when they are so young and tender
I personally water/ moisten soil before placing bean in soil and then i will mist once or twice a day as need to keep soil moist
Aslo using a dome with help retain moisture
You can cut small water bottles or soda bottles bottoms off and then place over plants
Didnt i set you up with your own thread @bluethumb

I didnt see I had my own thread. I just put this addy in my bookmarks page so from now on it will go straight to this page… I was trying to keep my questions in the beginner section so i wont be posting where I shouldn’t. I DONT want anyone getting pissed at me when I need to try to be as good as you guys with growing my girls… The stretching was due to the led I had on them and have since lowered the lights to about an inch above them… The one bent over Im afraid isnt going to make it :frowning: I really , REALLY appreciate the help this page and the Admins are giving me about my girls… Thank you…


#10

Lol @bluethumb I thought I started one for you
Ill find it and tag you no worries buddy just trying to keep things neat so we dont confuse others
If you can start a topic amd want to you can that not a issue either


#11

Get smething to prop them bent plants up until you transplant and bury all that stem and put a fan on them so they bairly move that will help strengthen the stem


#12

I use a small piece of soran wrap over the seed that I put in the soil about a pencil head, lightly cover it with a small rubber band to hold the moister in until it pops completely open, but leave some space for goth so it stands up when it’s up. Just a gardening technique.

I am using toothpicks and paper clips to try and help them , I dont think those grow pods are big enough to keep enough soil for the girls. These were planted 8 days ago …!They just arent growing … My girl planted hers a few days later and hers is healthy as sh^^ . Same soil , but she keeps it in a window sill in a slightly larger container. … ( Sirsmokes ) Wouldnt burying the stem a bit be bad ???

And both of you. You know the song “Red Solo Cup”? Those cups aren’t just for drinking out of :wink:


#19

Hahaha good advice and point @bruinsfan33


#20

@Hogmaster Thats who I ordered them from … 2 didnt germinate … I was told to keep the soil moist , with no run off out of the bottom… Then I was told not to water as much … GRRRRRRRRRRRR … I am only watering 2 times a day and just enough to moisten the soil , That pic was taken this morning when I got up and they were watered 13 hours earlier . The tall 1 was laying on its side so I touched the soil and it was dry…

I would top off your soil and get those stems some help standing up and if you have a fan that will just barley make them move a little to strengthen up are usually like to start with a little more soil than that just because transplanting it makes them easier if you do it out of a solo cup but the way you’re doing it that’s fine too I just use a water sprayer voice in my soil twice a day just like you’re doing you want to move your light possibly a little closer 18 inches or so away there stretching like crazy
