I have a lot of respect for you guys. I’ve been reading everyone’s posts for about a month before I started. I didn’t want to ask any questions in fear that people would think I’m lazy and asking for advice. (So far from the truth). I just want them to grow to there fullest extent. I read all your posts and enjoy it. It’s just that Robert Emailed me the day I was having problems. Sometimes the answer is easy for some and for me maybe it’s just my way of translating the language and what things mean. Well, I could not pass up alittle brain squeeze.;). I had the lights down 2.5 inches down from the start. After I had saw the problems I’ve stated. I shot the light by itself with my temperature gun it was 126 degrees. I could not believe it. One leaf has a pin hole in it and the other two had a slight leaf curl like it got abit dry. That’s when I raised them to there current height you see in the picture.
- Feitz 36 watt Led
- 24 inches long.
- 4 lights in a 2x3 area
- 1870 lumens Ea.
The second issue is there height and 12 days after sprout that they would be bigger. I started the germination out in little planting sponge pods. Seeds sprouted. All 15;). Growing nicely and rapid to this point. Cleaning germination rack and had one nice root coming from the bottom. 2 days later I go to clean out the box again and roots were just everywhere and were bright white and healthy looking. (Almost Transparent) I sent my picture of the roots to a local who’s pretty good at growing his own, so I asked him what he thought. He said time to go to a bigger container. (1Gallon) I read every post on moving them in to safer and bigger housing arrangements;) Everything went very well and it just seems they slowed down on me. I think there’s just a lot if not more right now going on below than up top.
Probably just paranoid. (Rookie)
- No nutrients other than soil
- New containers are slotted for run off
- No over watering
- Ph levels good.
- Co2 levels good
3rd issue-I just can’t seem to get a concrete answer on lighting schedules for plants this size 24/0 20/4 18/6. This is just myself not knowing the language. I have been 24/0 and I know they say vegetative state, but there not there yet. I know these are mondane and very a matter a fact for most, but like I said earlier. I wan them to be there best!
So thanks for any information. Any and all info from you guys would be very cool! Merry Christmas to the staff and bloggers!
