So I originally put 4 seeds in water, seeds 1 and 2 grew tails within 48 hours and have been planted in small clear cups. With the intention of being moved to 5 gal fabric pots soon after sprouting.
This morning marks 72 hours for the other two, after reading here I have transferred them to paper towel and placed under light, upon closer inspection during transfer, seed three has popped, but I am still going to leave sit on paper towel for probably 24 hours to let tail grow.
I have also ordered the 5gal fabric pots that will be permanent homes for these girls. So I may wait until they get here tomorrow and just go from towel to final fabric pot.
I also placed 5th backup seed in water yesterday, over-reacting to possibility of seed duds lol, if I end up with a 5th I have friends/family members that could take it, or I could end up with an outdoor plant I don’t know about, or take the first 4 to 12 inches and off the 5th… this decision can be made later.
The lights are turned down pretty far and at this distance my t6 fan is constantly running at level 3 to keep temps right around 78/79… I ordered and waiting for clip on fan which should really help with air movement in tent. I let the light run all night, this morning I installed the timer and put it on an 18/6 schedule. I guess I don’t need a timer for my vent stuff but I guess I could use the other timer for the small clip on fan coming.
bowl water seed 5, seed 1 and 2 planted, paper towel with 3and4

SkinnyB, Thanks for the information, it is a lot of information, and there seems to be a lot of ways to get the same job done which adds to the complexity of decision making lol
Tyler, our soil matches, I ended up mixing mine in a large Tupperware storage container inside though. Your plants are looking great, I am jealous of your head start lmao… I need to figure out what I need to get for training and which technique I want to go with. will need a net for sure now that I know tent size. The spider farmer lights, the ones in the current sf2000/1000 use the same diodes that I have from what I can tell.
I am also still waiting on my ph up/down longest wait so far lol my tap water is reading 7.3 and my distilled water was reading 7.8
Dbrn, thanks for the info they are up and working
Sunasun, yeah I have a battery backup on my network equipment currently, our power used to flicker all the time during storms, but in the last two years it has gotten better unless it is a really bad storm. I went with mechanical timers to help with this issue, I may end up doing battery backup as well though
Dirtydave, I had no idea about the clear cups, thanks, I will get these moved over to fabric pots after they sprout? yeah it ended up being 72 hrs before the move to paper towel so far so good though, except for me panicking, but I think it was a good learning experience lmao
Thanks again everyone for the help and support, happy growing!
