New to the forum but not to Jiffy pellets or Kratky. I’ve always had success with germinating food seeds but I feel like this isn’t right. I feel like should be seeing leaves. I started this Atlas Seed Fog Dog autoflower on 4/26 and moved it to the Kratky bucket two days ago because it was getting too tall in the Jiffy greenhouse dome. But yeah, is it back to the drawing board here?
What is the light your using it looks like it needs more light
More light from the sound of it but i can lead you to some help @Covertgrower @PurpNGold74. Yellowing Cotyledon leaves over water can cause slow growth this stage shot glss to half cup at the .most. @ashgardd welcome.and happy growing
Welcome to the neighborhood. Your little girl is looking for light.
I would lower your light, or increase it. The stretch is from lack of light intensity.
Can you put your hand or a peice of paper behind the plant up close?
It will help the camera to focus on the plant rather then the back ground.
Its definitely not right but I’d love to see the seedling more clear to advise weather something is mutation or damaged when sheding its helmet
Kratky is hydroponics, its basically a bubbleless bubble bucket if that makes sense…
Thank all of you for your swift responses. So I did have light over but only for a few hours last night. Now I see it’s leaning. I’ve turned the light back on. I’ve added pics of the light and current status (in better focus, and with light flipped up just to show the type). If I can still save it, about how much light? I just put it a timer to give it 18 hours a day.
Ok so ot hasn’t been getting much light?
Thats for sure the issue, it looked under developed and i can see now that it looks like it still thinks its under ground so it hasnt opened up or even turned green yet.
Don’t cook it with intense light but leave it on 24hrs a day for a week or 2.
Soon as i see plant matter sticking out of the ground, the light goes on for 24hrs a day for the first 1-3 weeks.
Give it light and try to support it the best you can and it may shift gears
Looks like she maybe drying out as well. Those peat pods are too all or none for me. Id rather just start in a solo cup but I feel hydroers pain getting started.
She is stretchy so light intensity was a problem, but supporting the stretchy stem is the priority. And getting her a drink.
Id be prepared to start over, preferably with a strain ur not too high on. Learning bumps and all that.
Yeah, reading around, next time (which maybe sooner than later), I’m def going a different route than the peat pellets. I think that’s screwing me up too.
I see alot of hydro growers using rockwool? The little beigey yellow cubes. They seem similar but a bit more well put together.
