Second grow, first time with coco, Hempy, and AutoPot.
On 16 Oct I placed 3 LSD and 2 Critical Auto seeds in glasses of water and I placed them on a heat mat. The intent was to cull one of each (I am seed rich and space-to-grow-them poor). The next day, a couple of the seeds were cracked and were all at the bottom of their glasses, so I planted all the seeds in Solo cups with coco and perlite. Put them in the MH at 20 DLI on 24/7, on the heat mat.
Not sure why the two did not sprout. It could have been the temps, but I don’t think so. The room was kept between 60 & 65 for drying my first plant, but the cups were in a tent on a heat mat and under a humidity dome. The mini hygrometers said it was about 75 under the dome, but the coco was likely a few degrees warmer.
The goal here is to treat these girls right from the start. First grow was half-a___d, didn’t start paying her the attention she deserved and needed until she was around 10 weeks old.
Hoping to get lots more good advice from all you people. Not only did I enjoy it, but the advice was invaluable for me in taking my last girl to a happy ending.
This time I think I know a little, but undoubtedly I will be smacked in the face more than once with problems, as I am venturing into coco, Hempy and AutoPots for the first time.
I will veg in the solos and when the time is right, repot the LSDs into two 5 gallon Hempy buckets and the Critical into a 3.9G AutoPot. I know many people say not to repot autos, but some do and I will try it.
