My seedlings are too damn thirsty
    #608886 - 02/10/12 12:17 AM (4 years, 9 months ago)

(edit) Sorry I didn't fill out the full deal, theres not much more to my setup than listed.

I popped a germinated seed into a dirt puck yesterday. I soaked the puck for the required time but it dries out quick as shit. I covered the intake fan that was blowing directly on it. Am I gonna over water the seed trying to keep the puck moist.
2x18 watt cfl
Computer housed
Temperature 73.2-75


Thank you

No need to cross post man. 

Like I said in your other post, just transplant into a larger growing medium, i.e. dixie cups, or grow bag etc.

Yeah I was gonna take the other one down but I forgot, sorry.

Cool man thank you. How would you suggest I get the inflated puck into a solo cup of medium? Fill the soil in around the whole thing or remove the seed? I feel like that would be fatal..

I've gently removed the cloth in the past to assist slow root set on the slower ones before placing in soil. I haven't had any issues with this, just be careful, If the roots are showing through, then no I wouldn't.

are you in a cold climate?  It's likely the moisture from the puck is evaporating from the dry air in your house.  Personally, I always sprout my seeds, any seeds, in high humidity.  Even if it means sacrificing airflow (I basically treat them like cuttings

I though it looked like a pretty good deal as well.  I know I paid a little bit more than that for mine.

That things awesome. Yeah I live in Georgia but it's winter so the humidity is way low. I transfered to a solo cup of soil and it is doing much better. There's ALOT of air going through the box that it's in. Is she going to suffer if I cant afford to get one of those soon?

just close up the box some way until she gets rooted.  You can even use saran wrap
