although i write on the cup/pot the germinated seed goes into WHAT date it went in there. i start the aging from actual “birth date” (popped up through soil ) others may do differently
Okay, that’s how I did it as well. I just figured start counting day one on the day they popped through. Their “birth” from soil day When do you know when they are in veg and not in germination anymore. I know I’m way past germination…thank goodness!! That was stressful ! I’m just trying to accurately have the weeks on my calendar the closest I can. For example I have this week being week 5 in veg. ( I counted the whole first week as germination period. )
Thank you again so much!!!
Looks like you’re all covered
I watered for the first time today since transplant on 8/4 with distilled ph’d and compost tea using Natures Living Soil
Quick update: day 70 since sprout .
Started 12/12 light cycle on 9/20!!
Very excited to see what these girls will do
Call me sentimental , but I like sharing progress with the first group that has made this grow a success.
We are on day 93 ( give or take a day )
Thanks again for all of the guidance and support
Girls look great!
Beautiful Christmas you got. Very beautiful and healthy
out of likes but LIKE that, lol. You’re absolutely welcome and those ladies look AWESOME!!! keep up the good work
I spoke too soon…
I think…a few things…not sure I would be using that soil…I would stick to what everyone else is using…Fox Farms or lucky frog…To germinate just toss the seeds in a ziplock bag and let it soak for 24 hours…the only thing I look for…is it floating? If it’s floating. I plant super shallow barely covered in the jiffy pod and use a solo cup. Then after two or three weeks plant it in a Big planter with the good soil. Your lights are too high…you want the lights right right right on top of the plant. The seedlings need warmth but nothing crazy. I would stop using the heater and just plant shallow and let the lights warm the soil and cup. Also you don’t want to over water here…use a spray bottle and mist as needed.
This couldn’t come at a more perfect timing. I just dropped 2 WW autos and I’m having some anxiety related to how hard it was for my first time to grow the 3 I have going now. For my soil medium now, I use FFOF and FFHF. I love Natures Living Soil and use this as well.
I need to go back to my calendar , I think this is starting week 2 of veg. My one and lonely auto. The other 2 seeds that I dropped in water to germinate have taproots and I will be planting them in soil today . This is the part where I kill them . I mixed ffhf yesterday with a little perlite to help keep the soil fluffy added distilled water until Moist and am letting most evaporate before planting. I think I was suffocating them before.
Wish me luck
