Welp, I screwed up. Start germinating seeds too early. Thought the weather would have turned by now but it’s still averaging low to mid 60s during the day and high 40s to low 50s at night. Plan was to germinate and get a few weeks ahead indoors by taking plants out during the day and supplementing with a little extra light at night. After 3 weeks or so, plant permanently outdoors in 15 gal pots.
I’ve only been able to take them out a few times during the day up to this point. Guess I was too excited to get started and thought it would be a warmer spring like last year.
Contemplating what to do with my GGA which is now about 16 days above soil. I have a couple other seedlings that are about 2 weeks behind that might be ok.
Seems like my options are to:
A: buy another cheap light to supplement the cheap light I’m currently using and hope it gets me through another couple weeks. Hopefully she doesn’t flower and can be transferred to the 15 gal without incident. I don’t really have a desire to buy a nice grow light since I don’t plan to grow indoors beyond a seedling (I don’t have the space)
B: try to give it another week inside then put it outside permanently and hope for the best. Maybe buy one of these greenhouse-like covers to keep the wind and rain off at the very least.
C: start over
