SWIM's first grow
    #664659 - 04/02/13 02:58 PM (3 years, 7 months ago)

Let him know what you think.



2-3 weeks from germination. Not on the most rigorous light schedule, but light is given about 18 hours a day on average. Once germinated in a paper towel, these were put in a coco coir/potting soil mix for a few weeks. This picture is a few hours after transplanting them into large pots. Light is not the best, a 65w flood light. I see some stretching I think. Sorry the picture quality is not the best.

4-6 Update:

Both pics are the same plant as in the very first picture. More soil was piled up around the stem after it was transplanted to a smaller pot. It is receiving much more water and the light was moved to within 6 inches.

5-27 Update:

New light. What do you think?

Well Its like a double edge sword. Like you put them in smaller containers as seedling = Dirt will dry sooner.
Bigger pots= longer to dry plus you should water all the soil.But U save the plant any stress tranplanting if your not any good at it

Okay wait, you don't even know the size of his containers, or his watering schedule.  Don't jump to conclusions man.

    #664713 - 04/03/13 08:10 AM (3 years, 7 months ago)

I prolly would have buried it a lil deeper...but then again the stretching could be due to the flood light. Id get the cheap cfl's if i was on a budget. Somethin around 6400 or 6500k.

More info on the light please...brand? Temp?

Edit: 2-3 weeks seems way too lanky...

Heh, so flood lights do work..unless its an hps flood light which is weird. That being said, that plant is obviously reaching for light, and is way too small for 2-3 weeks.

How many holes are in the container? How big?

50% coir is waay too much IMO. You might as well treat it as a soilless mix

I tried the seedling mix from FF and after it dried up for the first time, it wasn't absorbing water well at all, and it only occurred to me because there was Much more runoff then from the other cups(with ffof/perlite). So if I didn't have anything to compare to (like op) I would think its good. I remember i had to use more then a gallon of water to get 2 in of wet soil. In a Dixie cup.
Just saying maybe he waters enough, but there's not enough water for the plant, cause it just goes down the sides of the container and out.

It all depends on what kind of light.  Most flood lights aren't HPS.  And an HPS is and HID light, not really a flood light.
