I live in MN and this is my first attempt at growing.
10 Northern Lights seeds
3 Big Bud seeds
10 white widow seeds
I started with the Northern lights in small 4x4 pots with intentions of germinating and sprouting them indoors and moving them outside when the time came. all 10 germinated, only 5 sprouted and once the first set of leaves came I moved them outside. They grew a bit outside but all dried out except for 1. I think the sun fried them. how often should I be watering? I was watering with a spray bottle about every 12 hours. The one that was left was eaten by something. Damnit.
All 3 big buds germinated, only two sprouted and I’m pretty sure I burned them with miracle grow water mix. they just shriveled up and died. Like I said - I’m a beginner.
The white widows all germinated also but I think I allowed a few of the to germinate too long before planting them. The white root was about .75 inches long when planted of those few and they have yet to sprout. this was 2 days ago. the other few have sprouted (in my closet. they are about 1 inch tall, the second set of leaves has come but they are hanging over sideways, almost upside down. The closet is about 3x3x8. I have a 45w flourescent bulb going 18 hours a day and a super small fan blowing.
my questions are:
What have I been doing right?
What have I been doing wrong?
How long should they stay in darkness after they’ve sprouted?
Am I too early with the light?
is the light too much?
how much light should they have?
is the fan too much?
If these plants do come through and keep growing, when should I move them outside?
Please help this typical beginner screw up!!
Thank you !!
