    Default i dont understand ....

    hi folks, i grew a few plants last year but it all went wrong ... stolen plants etc etc .....
    anyways
    this year i started 4 plants ... same way as usual.. damp paper towel ... got a good taproot and popped them in the grow medium ... THIS IS WHERE IT GETS WEIRD ¬¬¬¬¬
    lst time i used just compost .. they all grew well till put out in the wilds ...
    this time i used 50 / 50 compost and coco.... as i said good taproots so in the little pots they went ... watered the same as last year ... 2 weeks later ...NOTHING ???
    i gently dug into the medium with a cocktail stick to see whats happened ..... NOTHING... NO SEED .... TAPROOT NOTHING ??????
    anyone had this happen before? what went wrong? did they rot away ? is it due to the 50/50 mix ?
    im lost for words ....

    HELLLP !!!

    The only rational explaination is someone has taken them mate...... they are not just going to disappear like that, there would be something left, some one has got into your groom and taken them.

    If they’d been stolen the pot surfaces would have been disturbed! If you have leaves then they grew from a tap root, if just the leaves remain then something has eaten the roots or the compost was too hot or contaminated. For sure they haven’t upped and walked out!

    Not really, I've chopped down massive plants and not disturbed the soil ;-) If they're indoors, in a grow room, no animal can get to them, as they cant unzip the tent, unless maybe a rodent through a vent hole, but i doubt that, and they wouldn't eat the plants, surely.

    How big, is "big enough to plant out"?

    Ohh lol, I thought you meant a few nodes high atleast. probably the soil was too hot as said above, dissolved them poor bastards lol. You cant go straight into normal soil mate, you have to use weaker stuff for seeds. You went into compost?? Thats way too much for seedlings mate, killed em and they degraded already...... Good compost though!

    You're gonna have to go again im afraid mate.
