Questions from a fellow grower:
I purchased Super Silver Haze seeds (5 + 5) and received them promptly and with no issues, thanks to your novel packaging. I started 3 of them on 8/2 and 2 more on 8/6. All sprouted, but one did not grow. A 100% germination rate and an 80% survival rate is very good in my view. Of the 4 that survived I gave 1 away and put the other 3 in 5 gallon (23 liter) containers with a mixture of potting soil and compost from my veggie garden. The soil PH is around 6, as measured with a digital meter, and the plants are in a tent under 600 watts of LED lights. My problem is that 2 of the plants have only grown about 4 cm and the other about 7cm. The taller plant is starting to grow a little faster, but after over a month all should be bigger. My questions are:
Is feminized seed a slower grow?
Is there something that I should be doing (or not doing) to boost the growth?
Should I cut my losses at this point and start the remaining seeds?
