    Default First Time Grower - EXCITED but also worried

    Hey folks!

    It's great to be amongst such a vibrant and helpful community I've been reading the forums throughly and taking notes for my first grow (Stress Killer from Royal Queen Seeds).

    The seed was germinated from 13/01.

    Hopefully someone here will be able to shed some light, I have just transferred my plant from a smaller pot that looked like it was doing pretty well, but today I noticed what looked like the root pushing itself out (which I didn't get a picture of unfortunately), but you could see the stem wasn't holding very firmly in the soil - I have since transferred this to it's final fabric pot.

    Some things I thought might be the issue:
    • The pot itself was too small and caused the seed to push itself out of the soil.
    • The light was far too high (was basically as high as it could possibly be).
    • The pot was far too dry.


    I have since lowered the LED light (which is a 100W) to approx. 18 inches, have watered well and added a bamboo stick for support until it regains its strength.

    Temperature wise, I'm maintaining a lovely 28-30 degrees on 18-6 cycle.

    Hey mate welcome to the forum, I can't give you much info as to why but I can say that this does happen sometimes.

    Hey buddy.
    Welcome to the Joy's of gardening lol

    As said this does happen from time to time.

    If you have any soil left over you could top up the pot which will sink the little lady further down which in turn will support / Stabilise her.

    Good luck

    Thanks for all your replies so far! I'll top up with a little more soil to give her the additional support - will update here on progress too

    Peace

    Greetings brother, in order for your daughter not to grow too tall, you need to keep your light as low as possible and while doing this, consider the heat falling on the upper leaves. Do not fertilize for the first 15 days, just give Ph water and humidity should be %70

    Hey Folks - checking in at the 2 week period, things are looking good, we've come a long way and it's been really amazing to see her grow - she looks healthy but was naturally feeling like she needs to be pruned but would really appreciate advice from more experienced friends here

    I'd be in no hurry to start stripping her yet mate, she's doing good.
