In a cool, dark place at least a week or so. But the nutes will sink to the bottom and stick to the container walls somewhat.

Also, the ph of the mix might change over a couple days.

I've used Advanced Nutrients and Canna--Canna holds up well for 1+ week (a/b+zym, with rhizo and boost its a little less). Advanced will form lots of solids and leave a bunch of solids on the bottom as well as coating the walls of the tank. Canna doesn't do that, I can go a few weeks without scrubbing the tank with canna whereas Advanced will need soap/scrbbing almost weekly to stop the mineral buildup on the tank. After a few weeks of not even scrubbing the Canna tank it will have a very slight coating of solids that washes right off--Advanced practically needs to chiseled off the plastic.

I also use only a 5 gallon bucket as my res tank to avoid any long term problems--only ~10 days of res max, 2 days worth when its in peak production in week 5.  Canna told me to avoid using an airstone because your pumping in molecules that affect pH, bacteria levels and whatnot. They advised me to use a waterfall type agitation for a minute every few hours if I needed to satisfy my urge to stir the tank. I used to do that, but then i got tired of washing the pump so I just said screw it--I think it works a little better by not stirring at all.  This is a standing, non-recirculating tank using blumat auto-watering.

Even when the pH and PPM's are matched, the AN solidifies much sooner and makes a huge mess. My point is that its generally about a week, but some do much much better than others. Basic solutions tend to last longer than when you load them down with additives. Just get an appropriate sized res tank so as to not over-mix a shit ton of nutrients that sit.

Are you watering slowly until they start to drip? If not how?

How often do you water?

yes I am watering it slow. its like every 2nd or 3rd day that I water.. I check the soil everyday. I will stick a finger in about a inch or two and if it is still damp I will leave it be

I dont think you gave them enough I just poor the water really slow and all around the soil to make sure its all wet.How i feel that I watered enough is i pick the pot up before i water and after you do this and see the difference.As for run off not really good indicator of well watered because if your soil is real dry like mine .It will run down the sides and not even get all the soil.

Mushroom the thing is, that depends on the size of the container. So if the containers are so small that they only need 1gal for 12 of them, then you should have transplanted them a while ago (3-4 leaf sets). Containers that are big enough for 12x 3-4 leaf set plants would require more then a gallon of water.

So how big are the pots(/cups?)?

Well first of all, I only see 6 plants:confused: and these are old pics?

But yeah, no way a gallon is enough for even 6 of those. I'm guessing they're 1 gal pots. I got one (around same age) in a gallon pot that I transplanted like a week ago, watered a half galon, and haven't watered since.

You shouldn't have to water those for a long time man.

ok I just watered the plants used two gallons of water this time

here is a couple quick pics i took





k i noticed that some of the leaves have a light yellow spot here and there.. also i started to notice some of the leaves are curling a little and the leaves seem a little dry...

for this watering i added 1ml of liquid karma , 1 ml of Botanicare cns17 veg feed, and 1ml of Botanicare pure blend tea.  I know it was not much but was not sure if these was still a lot of nutrients left in the fox farm soil sense the seed only been about 2 weeks. so figured i would start off light and next watering i could add more if the plants don't respond bad to it

No need for nutrients yet man.  Just Karma.  Also I would give each of those pot a half gallon each.
