Giving it a go once again

I did have baggies over them up until they sprouted. They aren’t drying out, and they aren’t drowning

The top 2 on the far right row, are the ‘slow’ ones. Far left bottom is 1 that withered away. Far top left, you can barely see the seedling sticking up. It still looks like it’s on day 2. Not growing at all, but not dying either.

Amnesia Lemon White Caviar Runtz …is the one that withered away immediately after sprouting.
.
2 White Runtz White Caviar x Runtz … is the top left cup. Day 2 growth still. Also top row right, same strain. (Stunted growth)

Monkey Slapz far right 2nd from top. stunted growth also.

All others seem to be doing fine, guessing about a week away from transplanting to 5 gal fabric pots.

Damn, you got no problems… all them cups and only one dead, doing good. For my summer outgrow this year I started a candy store seed. I did it about the same time as all my clones. I also started two other plants by seed at the same time. The candy store popped up popped out one set of leaves installed for three or four weeks. It was way smaller than the rest of the plants and I did not have very high hopes for it. But it eventually started growing and when the leaves covered the top of the cup I put it in the ground. It wound up being my second largest plant. And that’s pretty big. I can tag you over to my journal if you would like and you can look back and check it out.

Update…

17 days in the solo cups so far. I’m a little concerned about the plants leaves not standing straight out and looking proud. They look a little droopy, semi claw like almost. . When I put my hand under it at plant height, it’s not hot by any means. Temps…low 70’s, humidity about 56% right now.

First leaves are turning yellow as well. They are in Happy Frog soil and have been watered by plain RO water so far. I’m using a small squirt bottle and only give them 10-15 drops of water at a time. Right at the base of the stem. Plants have never been ‘flooded’.

They are going to be transplanted (when time) into FFOF 5 gal fabric bags.

Nutrient time, or stick with plain RO?

thanks!!!

I used some Botanicare Grow at 1/2 strength, and watered them all pretty good. Now to sit back and see what happens.

Looking much better after the water.:):):slight_smile:

I was afraid I’d overwater the seedlings and kill them. All I read was ‘Number 1 problem in growing from seeds is too much water’. I thought I overwatered them at first. I had one wither up shortly after I watered it, or so I thought. I guess I was wrong…

I’ll get some more photos soon. I’m an ex photographer, and I have all the equipment for some great photos. Color corrected, of course :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help!!!

Man, you would have thought I fed them liquid Viagra.

They really liked the nutrients and extra water.
It seems like they grew a good bit over night. I’m going to start adding cal-mag to the water as well. It’s not going to be long till transplant time. Another week maybe…

thanks!!

Happy New Year!

Everything is looking good here.

Bought a new Hanna PH-TDS combo meter and calibrated it yesterday. I previously had the Hanna PH meter, but ithe probe dried out from sitting 8 yrs :frowning: I never fooled with TDS before. I guess I’m going to need to watch a video or two.

Since it’s been cool, I re-routed my air cooled hoods exhaust into the tent to help with the cold spell. I only have 1 600 watt HID going now for the new plants. I’m going to fire up the other 600 watt HID, and the 2 new 440 watt LEDS, just as soon as I transplant into 5 gal pots. Sure hope the heat isn’t going to be a major problem this early.

I have neighbors pretty close by, so I’m a bit concerened about smell. I have serious doubts about my big 8 yd old Phresh filter working properly after sitting so long. I have a while to go before I have to worry about that issue.

thanks!!

Shit Prey, you still a puppy…lol Got my first apartment when I was 17 too, back in 1969, went to work for MOPAC railroad as a machinist apprentice, then two years later Journeyman. Quit the next year, couldn’t stand that place. Roundhouse full of diesel smoke 8 hours a day, no machine work, just taking those HUGE diesel engines and everything else apart and fixing them. One brake pad weighted 80 lb. and you had to hold them up with one hand and put the retainer clips on with the other. Made REALLY good money but still not worth it to me. Made $9.87 an hour in 1969. Turn 71 this year.

Gettin old lol…

Well you certainly look like you know what you are doing! Good looking little girls for sure. I have heard (never tried it) that you can bake a activated charcoal fliter in the oven and re-juvinate it. But I also heard that it makes a hell of a stink lol. (The good kind you like, but a dead giveaway to the neighbors).

Will be following along for sure.

Make sure you have lots of holes in the bottom of the Dixie cups, (4-6) and water till it runs out the bottom and then wait for 2-3 days and do it again. It depends on how much water they use, I water mine like that when the coco pulls away from the sides of the cup.

@rixx also start picking up the cups and feel how much they weigh. Do this all the time especially when you water. Depending on the media your using its a little different. But this way you get used to how they feel when thirsty and how heavy they feel when you water them. Then as you do this more watch how the plants look when there drying out and when wet. They droop and or pray. And then you get to the point you can look at the droop or prayin and tell of they need water or not. So i usually touch the soil then pull on the pots to feel the weight.

I have been checking them by the weight. Now, some of them are going dry in 28 hrs or so. Some a little slower. It’s happy frog soil in the cups, it don’t take long for the soil on the very top to go dry.

I bet I spend 3-4 hrs out there in the tent. I don’t smoke in the house, so I tend to hang out in the tent. I try to keep a good eye on them.

THANKS!!

I read a little about baking the filters. The filter is pretty big, too big for an oven. It looks like it’s sealed. When I get more time I’ll take a closer look at it. I don’t know if it can be emptied and refilled with new activated carbon? I need to do some more research. Thanks for the suggestions.

Yeah I think they should make em all so you can just buy a new charge for them in a permeanable cloth of some sort so you don’t get the charcoal everywhere. Would save the cost of the housing and the weight of shipping it. Now that would be a great business for someone with the means to do it. Start a filter company that has a slip in charcoal insert that can be taken out and replaced, just order a new charcoal bag for your filter size !

Plants are taking off… sucking the water up in less than a day now. Almost a foot tall already. It’s now been a month since they went in the cups after germinating.

The small ‘runt’ (front right) seedling is finally taking off. It’s about time :slight_smile:

Tomorrow might be the day I transplant…No sign of roots peeking thru the holes yet. Think it’s time? Or should I wait a bit more? .

thanks!!!

They look good. It’s been a big change in the last 10 days. I think if you want to transplant them they all do fine except may be number four. If that one’s just starting to come out of shock you might not want to mess with it yet.
