starting another grow will use 2 600 watt mh /hps fox farm happy frog soil, ff nutes, 1000 cfm exhaust fan, carbon filter, co2 bucket, ILGM DEA mix pack seeds ordered seed 8/8/20 received 8/19.dropped 2 green crack 2chemdawg, 2 lsd seeds on 8 /21. all 6 seeds popped within 20 hrs. left them in water till they developed 1/8 inch tails put in dirt 8/27. here they are 9/1
Tuning in best of luck newbie to newbie😅
next time: use clear cups to better assess the root growth. continue to use clear cups for domes. cut pipe cleaners in half, stick in ground, make loop around seedling to support till it does so by self.
Transplant to 5 gallon bucket(minimum) the Happy Frog will be great till 3rd month…then nutes will have to be added.
I was told not to use clear cups because pure light is bad roots but opaque is ok
all we can do is suggest…YOUR GROW, YOU DECIDE…and live with the results.
the week or two the roots are in a clear cup will NOT screw up the grow. a clear 5 gallon pot would be a mistake…as roots will start turning green.
If it bothers you that much, put the clear grow cup inside a opaque cup, then you can pull out to monitor root growth. I let the roots grow till covering the clear cup like spider webs.
you’ll know when they grow out of the bottom of the cup
