Newbie with a million Q's getting ready for this summers outdoor


Awesome @Buds007 I’ll be watching your grow! I’m very excited it’s WWA!


@Countryboyjvd1971 @bob31 @peachfuzz @garrigan65 @Myfriendis410 @FreakyDeekie @AmnesiaHaze How long should I leave them in the water? I have the starter balls ready to go but I don’t see a tap root yet & it said to put the seeds in for 24hrs. Do I take them out or leave them till I see the root?


I just left mine in water for 24 hours and then moved them to the peat pellets down a quarter of an inch soil loose and in a moist environment ( I used a small, high-domed plastic thingy that you germinate seeds in). They were up and showing their pretty heads within 24-36 hours :green_heart: :seedling:


I don’t use a time, I let the seed tell me what it wants. The taproot will tell you. When it is out a 1/4” then plant in your starting pot/peat pellet/Rockwell cube etc


Yeah I was worried I might drown the seeds if I waited longer than 24hrs. I ordered one of the domes but it turned up crushed, total bummer! But at least they gave me a refund. :+1:


@Buds007 you could always just take a 2 litre bottle and cut it in half to use as a dome over individual seedlings instead of the dome. it works just as well.


As long as the seed is floating it will not drowned. Are you keeping the water at 75-80 degrees and keeping the cup or whatever covered? I use a zip lock baggie. I’m 100% germination. Sometimes it take up to 48 hours or so to have them germinate, but they always do! @Buds007


Some shell husks are thicker than others. Keep soaking until she cracks.


Yup, she’s gonna wiggle her tail at ya before you know it! hahaha @Myfriendis410 @Buds007

So after a tense 60hrs & a bit of a change I HAVE 4 TAILS, WAHOO!!! :laughing:

I’ve just put them in the peat starters & tomorrow I will be putting up my tent(yep I’ve pulled the trigger & this will now be indoor), but for now they are just sitting on top of one of my fish tanks. Needless to say, but I’m both relieved & over the moon! :hugs:

Absolute bummer happened, I ordered a dome & look how it turned up, dang it!! Good thing is I got my money back, but PITA is I have to get another one, & soon too.



well that sucks…but hey 1.) you got your money back…2.) you don’t have to lift the top off for fresh air…lol
Tag me so that i can better follow your grow

Will joint


Hahaha, always looking at the bright side, nice one @garrigan65 :+1: :laughing:


That does stink but looks like you can push it out ? @Buds007


@Buds007 if it doesn’t pop out on it’s own grab a hair dryer on high and blow it on it for a few seconds while u hold it in position. It should mold itself back. That’s what I did with mine


Great tip @noobius

And thanks for the update @Buds007


Absolutely a good tip @noobius


@Countryboyjvd1971 @bob31 @peachfuzz @garrigan65 @Myfriendis410 @FreakyDeekie @AmnesiaHaze @noobius

I figured out a solution for the squashed dome. I was breaking down & cleaning out a few fishtanks & one of them seems to be just the right size, just like plastic, only glass! :+1: :grin:

They seem to be liking it. :sunglasses:


nice green house yeah man u knw dat bless :ok_hand::+1:


Update - Day 9

@Countryboyjvd1971 @bob31 @peachfuzz @garrigan65 @Myfriendis410 @FreakyDeekie @AmnesiaHaze @noobius

Pretty happy with the progress of the first two. The second two are trying to poke their heads up, must have put them in upside down. :upside_down_face:


Update - Day 10

@Countryboyjvd1971 @bob31 @peachfuzz @garrigan65 @Myfriendis410 @FreakyDeekie @AmnesiaHaze @noobius

I came home today to find roots popping out the side of the peat starter, so I did a quick transplant & a bit of a spray & we’ll see how they look in the morning.
I can see something going on in the last two peat starters, just not sure when they’ll pop up. :grin: :+1:

Also, when do I start feeding? I’m supposed to wait for the second true leaves, right!.
