    Default Answered: Just want to check im not rusty and wrecking my seedlings.

    So i germed some seeds and they were hanging around waiting for some other seed to germ before i put them under a 250watt blue cfl, 8 inches away.

    They have had 3 days of this light in a dialed in groom.

    I have been feeding them from day 4 of them popping up above coco.

    My back ground ec is 0.4 and i have been bringing that up to 0.6 just flashing into 0.8 (blulab truncheon)

    Whilst there has been growth, its very small and slighty yellow. This is what i do when using coco to germ and not really had any problems.

    But this is when the doubt set in, do i normally do that?? I've had a lot going on health wise (as usual) and my eldest (20) is causing grief big time taking 20 x 2cb whatever the fuck that is!!! amongst other nasty shit. So my head is kinda full and i'm liable to mess up the grow.



    How do others feed their very small seedlings when they pop up. Mine is hand to waste watering but i've not got to the point of total saturation as yet due to small seedlings = small roots



    If anyone can help i'd be over the moon. These are a week since cracking and only just starting a second (inner) set of leaf.


    Am i overdoing the nutes or under doing them....

    Sorry to hear of your woes.

    I reckon you are overdoing it.

    0.2EC tops at your stage. If you see yellow then definately too hot. 5.8 PH.

    I use a+b along with rhizo, cal mag and liquid silicon. But as said very low levels.

    Dial it down is my advise. Less is more :-)

    Are we on about canna rhizo 4 mls per litre ?

    0.8 seems very small amount for entire grow, how come?

    Got any pics?

    You see, I use RO water, which helps. Starting at 0.4EC you have no headroom really with seedlings!

    I assumed they’d be in there larger finals being Autoflowers, I’d get some better light on them. Autos need all they can get from the off mate.

    Right ok, i tried with Stardawg again and dropped 4 beans to pop.

    2 opened and grew 1mm taproots, then promptly stopped growing anymore. After 4 days i had an inspection, the insides had all turned to mush, the seeds are fucked.

    So i complained and got a 5 pack of gorilla glue auto and a 5 pack of girl scout cookies free.


    So the new beans are in water as i write.

    The gelato's are not doing as well as i hoped, they seem to be really lingering....These have been up above ground for 11 days now but i'm greeted with what looks like a 4-5 day old seedlings.


    What the hell am i doing wrong.....



    Someone please talk me through their success as i feel like i'm having non,


    What i do - fill pots (1/2 litre) with coco, insert seed around 10mm down with root down. Leave for few days to pop up...then, Make up a litre of water with 2 mls rhizo and 0.2 EC coco A and B on top of my 0.4 back ground. Watering once a day but now doing twice....


    So just to ensure i get some plants i now have 7 seeds cracking ffs.....


    This is getting silly now man who grows huge plants and gets big yields can not even get a seedling to grow wtf? I remember now the last time i did this exact way of growing starting in coco, i had problems, but that was down to a new product called start, it wasnt enough and so i started to use coco Aand B and bam off they went in 1 day new growth all over. But this time is worse. No use of start just Aand B And i have now gone through, hhhhmmmm let me count, 16 seeds and only have 4 babies whilst waiting on the 7 to crack, i have wasted 2-3 weeks and my time.

    Really starting to wonder about my home, we all feel ill at times for no reason, and we are finding, any seed whether its veg for the garden or corn flowers they all seem to suffer until planted outside. No one smokes in the home and we are cleaner than most ppl. So i am just like fuck sake i just want some xmas weed grumble grumble.....lol and all i can smell is some old boy up the hill smoking ganga that i dont have.....


    Meh!!!! I am defo stumped, why so hard to get anything growing?????

    I can't figure that out mate, it all seems fine to me. Maybe try less feeds to let the pots dry out a little.

    I grow in coco too but start off in a standard seedling soil then move onto coco. Trying to balance the ph in small quantities can be a pain in the arse. Now I can just water and rhizo for the first few weeks, much easier.

    Yeah i dont get it either mate. I usually do the way you do, start in soil then switch to coco in big pots. But these are autos and i didnt want any issues with nute absobtion or anything (just incase) as autos can be funny about their roots.
