Should I FIM her? Did LST and topping on my last grow, trying something different. She’s 2 weeks in veg, 4 from sprout. Photo Skywalker OG in coco under a ts1000
Entirely up to you. Seems like it’s hit or miss with this technique.
I personally don’t top of FIM mine. I find that training the growth benefits my growing style a bit more. Looks like a healthy little laddie

I would only suggest that you go easy on the water. They need to be in fairly dry soil now. A couple of teaspoons is all they need until the plant gets larger.
Rainwater is good but I still recommend purchasing a decent PH meter. Drops are not accurate enough.
@Myfriendis410 I will get one today. I only water them on the outside of the cup and a couple sprays by the stem. That’s what I’ve been reading to do anyway lol. That way the roots stretch to get the water.
That is exactly right. Keep doing what you’re doing. FYI distilled water is great when they’re little too because the liquid adopts the soil PH immediately.
They won’t need any nutrients; better to let them tell you when they need something, if anything.
There may be a bit of stretch happening; you may want to bring the light down a bit. I don’t know what that is on your leaves but I would try to avoid getting anything on them at this stage. High humidity is still good but you can start hardening them with a small fan playing on them for a couple of hours each day.
When you buy a meter avoid getting one of the 3 in 1 meters: they are worthless.

Thank you very much @Myfriendis410 I could use all the help I can get. I would rather benefit from someone else’s mistake than repeat it. That would be dumb on my part. The white stuff on the leaves is diatimacious (can NOT spell that word atm) earth spray for a pest problem in our room.
