    Default First Time Grower

    I started by soaking the seeds overnight in glass, and germinated them using the paper towel method. It took about 2-3 days for the seeds to germinate, I initially planted them in egg-crates and later on transplanted the seedlings into solo cups. I used a regular organic pot mix. Summer Sunlight duration 14-18 hours. Watering them from a pond water.

    The seedlings started to blossom but the plants did not increase much in height.

    Now I've transplanted them into bigger pots from the solo cups. I'm worried about the size of the plants as the height is low.

    suggestions and advice are always invited.

    Looking good, I bet you been having some cold nights? At least that's usually the case when you get a really well-developed little tiny plant. If they spend most of their time indoors your light could be a little bit low also.

    I'm going to scurb along with hotshot

    Nights are regular summer nights not cold at all. Though I've a feeling its because of the tea which i added to the grow soil at the seedling stage or maybe because of the strains. They are getting 12 hrs direct sunlight, growing outdoors.

    Well they must not be happy with the soil? They could or should be a little further along it might be lack of nutrients in the soil or it could just be too compacted and hold moisture too much. Are these auto flowers, or photos?

    The soil is clayey and black does seem compacted and as a result holds too much water but drainage seems to be working fine. I transplanted them today to a bigger pot with organic compost and garden soil. I'am hopeful things would improve within 3-4 days. These are photos i think, to be honest these were randoms seeds at hand which I germinated.

    They should start looking a lot better real soon then I think. it would be interesting if people started selling autoflowers as streetweed, I guess they probably are I've seen guys doing it on other forums. But yeah, photo periods are going to give you plenty of time to figure things out.

    Should the young plants be protected from excess sun?? they are being watered regularly to keep the roots cool and the plants seemed to be green and growing. I'm just curious since its the summer and the temperature is high should I keep the young plants under cover or some shade?

    What are they temps you're worried about? With pots that big you shouldn't require water very often. Did you get a new soil? Still looks very heavy to me.

    I guess what I meant was unable to hold much air. But if they're drying out every day then you're getting plenty of oxygen in when you're watering.

    I've had no problems with 102° f, I think I've gone up to around 108 without any issue.

    Although, this one was on autowater four times in a 24-hour.

    Im more confused with is it the right time to move them to newer bigger house or should I wait few days. Is it that a bigger pot promotes rapid growth, because since I posted them pictures plants havent grown as such they were few days earlier and been apprehensive that maybe the pot is limiting them.

    I know I'm far from it but around when could I expect the pre-flowering stage wherein I could establish the females from the males. They sprouted around Mid-April though did have a rough start with my watering so I was just curious about when.

    And also any suggestions for LST or pruning??
