This is my second grow, and my setup is the same as the first, which has been successful. My first seedling was much more spry and its leaves much larger at this point in its life. I posted a few days ago that my seedling leaves were stuck in its seed membrane for nearly two days after popping above the soil. I gently removed the membrane, and then it seemed fine and its leaves grew that first day. However since then (Thursday) its leaf growth has been slow. I see what appears to be its 3rd set of leaves (2nd serrated leaves) so they are very faintly beginning to form, but only one side.
I can post pics soon, but I just now had a minute that I wanted to get this posted. Thanks.
A lot of little ones seem to slow down at this stage they are busy building a root system, water as normal and in a week they should take off. Well I hope that is the case lol as I don’t see pictures… but good luck man
I took it away from the grow light to get some pics.
It sprouted this past Tuesday, so this is its 5th day above ground. When it had the membrane covering its leaves, it stretched since it couldn’t get enough light, and it has grown vertically since. To me, compared to my last grow, the leaves seems small for its age. Its a White Widow Auto, same seed bunch from my previous grow. 20210214_192618|375x500
Looks normal and healthy, I agree with the previous comments. Seedlings will focus their energy on growing roots to help absorb nutrients. You sprout will spring into action once you get her into some nutrient rich soil. Healthy roots make fat buds. If you want to get into living soil, the book “Teaming with Microbes” will teach you more than you ever knew was happening in that pot of gold your roots are living in. Good luck!
