I’m a pretty good gardener, and start all my plants from seed, and had what I thought was a pretty nifty indoor set-up for seed starting (until I saw some of the pics on this site haha). So I decided to finally give marijuana a try. I ordered 10 Northern Lights Feminized seeds from ILGM.
Germinate in water cut (ILGM’s recommendation). Plant in 4inch plastic pots. Grow indoors until strong enough to be transplanted into 15gallon fabric pots outside.
4ft T5 light (can’t remember brand, I thought iPower). Seedz 48inch heat mat. Timer. Master Gardner Potting soil. Pro Mix Organic soil.
I drop 2 seeds in a glass of RO water, cover it with a black plastic pot, and put it on my heat mat. I had to cover because some of my cucumbers and peppers were still under my grow light.
No change, I add new water.
One of the seeds had cracked open. And I can see the taproot. I move to damp paper towel on a plate, with an inverted plate on top. Back on heat mat.
The taproot has not grown at all since the day before. The other seed still closed. I decide to plant them in 4 inch pots with Master Garden potting soil. I start 2 more seeds in water cup.
One has sprouted! 1st pic at 9am. 2nd at 7pm.
One of the new seeds opened up. I transfer both to damp towel in between plates.
Seedling is getting tall
Taproot on new seed is about 1/3inch, I plant that in a 4inch pot with Pro Mix organic soil
