You have a 15 gallon pot
enough fox farm soil to fill it
and some vermiculite

What do you do?

I like using the paper towel method myself, has yet fo fail me. Then putting the seed taproot first into a hole (in soil) no deeper then half a inch in a Dixie cup with drain holes. I like vegging under a two t5 fixture for a few weeks under a 18/6 schedule. Also it.is advised not to put more then one plant per pot.

Can one of you share advice [Re: Hawksresurrection]
    #775374 - 04/07/15 01:41 AM (1 year, 7 months ago)

Hey guys I just mixed like 25% pro mix HP with 75% ground loam  in 3x3x3ft holes it seems very soft and not clay like with a noticeable amount of perlite. Am I gonna end up with crappy weed? Can this work out well with a good line of organic nutrients or am i on the road to bammer?

PS. what could speed up flowering ive noticed from one of my friends attempts that they grew huge but didnt mature completely could this be a result of ground dirt. Or was he just impatient im not sure they would never admit it.

I put the special potting soil in there
got some stuff on the way but i put some verm on top
sprinkled the bottle all on top
bout half a cup deep
put the seed in
lightly covered that with verm
sprinkled half a bottle of bottled water over that til it was empty

put a empty container over that with a cfl light 6 inches away

How often should I moisten it?
I figure it'll grow once I turn the light off

I have a proper grow light,it's the most expensive thing in my set up but it doesn't give off much heat

I don't want to paper towel it if I don't have to, I'm worried about wasting time damaging the root that way.

How much time before my seeds go bad?

I've seen pictures of people starting a bunch of seeds in a single bed, but I personally wouldn't do that. I like using paper towels then to party cups.

Yea screw incandescent. IF you look around you can get big 10-15$ 60w 6500k CFL that fit in normal e27 sockets and are pretty good IMO. Though they are sometimes sold as photography bulbs that are meant for E26 sockets and the product descriptions will just say "fits standard socket" which seems intended to hide that they are talking about e26 standard sockets and not e27, though e26 can still fit in an e27 socket, they just have less threads and possibly might not screw into some sockets. It's usually not a problem, but just felt I should mention it.

The 60w are a great deal for 10-15$ since the 125 watt are 40-50$ at the cheapest and yu need a whole new type of socket. There might even be 100 watt cfl that fit into e27 but I'm not positive.


--------------------
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!

nah I have a 300 dollar grow light lol
the incadecent is to keep the heat up in the space

what I'm wondering is though why is this thing drooping?
I leave it and it seems like any light it can get it goes after...
I put a borken chop stick under it and tied it up with a string

it's probably like 3 inches high maybe with four spread leaves on top
it looks like it could blow over and die in an instant

You are killing it with too much water, too early of feeding, your light is too close, it's too hot, what else could go wrong?  When you overwater one day and your plant droops, then you think it needs more water which is exactly the wrong thing.  Oh maybe it's drooping because it's hungry.  Oh maybe it needs more light, better get that hot light right on top of this 3" tall plant.
