    Default Starting seeds off

    Just purchased some Dutch passion, orange punch.
    I usually use the paper towel technique to crack the seeds off.
    But I'm more interested in what's best to get the seeds growing . I'm going to be finally growing in Coco, but was wondering is starting them in a soil a better option and then transfering them to the Coco a better option than growing immediately in the Coco?

    I just went straight into the coco mate. Spray it every day to keep it damp with a plastic dome over the top to keep it humid.

    Once its above ground I start watering in a circle 2 inches away from the plant to get the roots searching for water about 300ml then build up from that amount as the roots get established.

    If you are using Ec to measure feeds I started at 0.4 but this will depend on your water softness/harness. Ph should be 5.8.

    After the first true leaves appear I took the dome off to get her used to the humidity in the tent.

    Then you run a wet to slightly dry cycle I water again as soon as the top layer of coco looks dry. When the plants roots are established Its water every day mate.

    Hope this helps bud.
