Outdoor - CA - Seedlings

Hello ILGM Community.

First, thank you for all your posts. I have looked through many topics and feel that I have learned a lot.

I’m now in the seedling phase and getting ready to upgrade my pot size and begin giving my plants nutrients. I am being careful not to over water and am also bringing my plants in at night. I think they are doing well so far. Only 1 has some yellow on the leaves.

I have started 10 plants but 6 are for a friend. My 4 are going to be Sour Diesel, Acapulco Gold, Northern Lights and Island Skunk. I’m a sativa smoker and wanted to grow some strains that I found interesting. All are feminized seeds. I might add 2 auto-flower because I can legally grow 6 plants.

Here is a picture of where I am at now. They were germinated around 4/10 and planted in this starter dirt a little over a week ago.

When would all of you recommend I repot these? I believe at that time I will start a low dose of the nutrients.

A better picture would be helpful too.

Unless you are in coco or Promix you should not think about adding supplements until way later. Like in flower.

I kept my 21 seeds that popped in paper towel in 16oz solo cups for 4 weeks. When I pulled them out to pot up to 5 gallon fabric there was good root development. One thing I always use is rooting powder. What size are those u are using? What soil are u going to use when u repot? I use foxfarms so no need for nuts until flower. What size pots are u going to finish in?

Completely unhelpful. Good luck.

Not sure what I did (or didn’t do) to get that response from you. I answered the questions the best I could. Sorry my knowledge and experience isn’t on your level to answer the questions the way you would have liked.

Hello Harry,

3-4 weeks was the range I read about and was going to follow. I know I need to wait until more leaves develop before I repot. I bought regular potting soil. Mine I am going to put in 15 gallon containers because I have some space and privacy in my backyard. The current pots are just 3 inches or so tall. They are the kind that are made out of some organic material.

Thank you.

If those are the organic cups u just drop in that break down I would “pot up” at 4 weeks. Repot to 5 gallon fabric pots use good organic soil like foxfarms do not use miracle grow!! Then leave in 5 gallon for few months then repot to ur final 15 gallon pots. I had about 15% perlite to my mix. ( what brand of soil that is a big factor)

Don’t think you gave him enough info about your soil, brand . . . Fox Farm, Pro Mix, Miracle Grow, etc. and which of their products you are using. Shouldn’t have hurt any for him to be a little less dismissive though . . . and you filled out the “form” he uses, and it isn’t very specific when it comes to media. Anyway, someone that quick to be so dismissive of a new grower isn’t here to help.
