2nd Grow, no sprouts whats wrong,?????
    #686469 - 09/27/13 01:08 PM (3 years, 2 months ago)

ok so back on 9/12/13 I soaked 9 premium vendor seeds in water for about 36hrs or until the taproot came out.
On 9/14/13 they were planted about 2 cm down in soil (60%verm/40% potting soil seed starter)the lightly covered.
they have been misted almost every day and been watered about ever 3 days or as needed. its an indoor grow with 24hr HPS lighting 600w about 4 feet away from the light, there is plenty of air circulation and the room is around 84F.

Its almost been 2 weeks since planted, should I be more patient? does this seem strange to take this long for seeds from cali connection and Mr. Nice?
should I be doing anything else or what am I doing wrong??
:shrug:

totally stumped...
thanks for reading

dont soak your seeds in water. get a paper towel, get it wet, fold your seeds in it, put it in a zip lock bag and check it every day. if viable theyll crack in hours to a few days.

stop misting and watering so often. if you can see its wet by looking at it, dont touch it! stick your finger in the soil and little and feel.

84 is pretty hot. especially for seedlings. if that 600w air cooled?

i germinated 2 seeds recently. wet a paper towel, put in a zip lock bag and put on top of my T5 setup. they cracked within 18 hours. planted in soil after the shell was completely off the seedling. watered the pots, and didnt have to touch it for about 5-7 days because the seedling isnt drinking much. its also sitting in a room at about 72-75 degrees, 2.5 feet under T5s. just relax on the watering and try to bring the temp down.

exhaust fan, air cooled hood, and/or a/c
These are a few options.

You're downing the seeds dude.  You should't be watering them at this point.

2cm down is pretty far, when u put a seed in the soil it should only be covered in 1 seed's height of soil. my buddy just did his first seed run, put a bunch of seeds that popped in a paper towel and only took the best. I tried to warn him that some of the holes he was making was too deep, but he insisted they'd be fine... well quite a few of his never reached the surface.

You don't need a lot of light for seedlings, when they're just coming up they can be under a 26w CFL and be fine for the first week or so. Your temperature should be to where you don't need to water them for about a week+ at first--no drying of the medium because the plant won't take that much, but the hot/dry air might dry them out. Seedlings don't like heat waves.

Thanks guys. Sadly still no sprouts.
Might try the remaining seeds I have. With the tips you guys gave. Thanks.

So I did move the plants to a 6500k desk lamp. 78F. With a small fan blowing at them for air circulation. Is the fan a good or bad idea. ? Don't want mold. But need air circulation.

You don't need the fan right now, that will help dry out the soil and make you need to water it more often. It might not be a problem with most soil, but the stuff I use tends to dry out too quick when I have a fan on it. Wait until they're an inch or two.

So with the new seeds either use a wet paper towel in a ziplock until they start to pop or go directly into the soil, pointy side down, but no more than 1cm deep. Remember that you only need to have the seed covered with a seeds depth worth of soil. Keep them away from the extremes for a few days.

Did you break up that soil to see what those seeds did ? you might be able to replant if there not dead yet.

Wait it's bad to pre soak seeds for 24 hours or so before putting them in a paper towel?


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

not really needed unless you have tough seeds. A lot of these little tips and tricks are not always needed, but because they're in a book people think they have to follow it if they want the absolute best--Solutions to problems you may not be experiencing. Good seeds should sprout in a paper towel no problem.
