Currently 4 days in haven't popped yet. 

4l seemed to be touch too much water in 16l fabric pots. 

Switching back to 3l as I progressed from 2l to 3 finding it didn't produce any runoff 3 might be sweet spot

4x4 ft

Lighting

Photon LED 480w from "London Grow"

Hey @silentbutdeadly224, I’ve been growing in soil the last couple grows, but did my first one in coco and that was about 6-7 days before it popped it’s head up, so wouldn’t necessarily be worried if I was you mate. When you watered the 4L into the pot though mate was that before or after you planted the seed ? Sure you’ll get the coco growers commenting they’ll know better than me, happy growing though mate 👍

@gelert after man. Did 2l of water with plant start for both first time and used a watering can. Then didn't see run off so changed I think 2nd or third time to 3l then saw some run off. Then with 4 bottom was soaked but may have been collection as have fabrics pots on pot stands so they don't get drowned.

@silentbutdeadly224 right ok mate thanks for the info, they don’t really need much water tho mate while they are still waiting to pop,(there’s a great germination guide on here I used, after I killed 9 seeds on my last grow 😆), coco will dry out faster tho so would still hold on before doing anymore seeds as they could still pop up mate 👍 also do you have anything acting as a humidity dome over where you planted the seed mate (could be a plastic bottle cut in half), that would really help keep the humidity high, happy growing mate, you’ve done the hardest step and started growing, it’s all downhill from here mate, though there’s always a bend in the road you don’t see coming Lol, but that’s why we have Percys 😆💨👍

@silentbutdeadly224 yeah mate doesn’t need much at all to get it going, i now put about 100ml in the centre of the pot, place the seed in and cover it with a plastic cup or something, if the surface starts to dry out you can give a few sprays, but don’t really need a lot to get it going mate, the seed can also slip if watered to much (this also happened to me on my last grow lol), but wouldn’t really expect it to be up after four days, tho it could be, but does no harm to at least give to the week mark before trying anything else. All the best mate and keep us updated👍,Percys really is the best place to learn mate so ask any questions you have, you’ll always get someone who has a solution, happy growing mate 💨👍

Good luck with the grow. How deep did you place the seeds? A common issue can be getting them too deep however, you do not want to go digging around looking for them unless you are SUPER careful. Germinating seeds are very fragile at this stage.

Hey everyone. Quick update righty has just popped I'll update ya as we go. Got a new fan and filter which cost me a small fortune in next couple of days. So far, so good! Now lefty needs a go! Left them both a chance to dry. Seems to have worked. Will either water tonight or tomorrow depending on how dry we're looking.

About a knuckle deep

Something I learned very long ago that still holds true for nearly all seeds, no matter the size. Plant the seeds in a hole that is only 2-3 times as deep as they are in diameter. A very common problem new growers have is digging too deep and essentially digging a grave for the seeds.

So to update. Second has now popped too. All looks good so far! 

Not sure when to switch over to my Canna nutrients and what ratio etc so probably going to use their feeding schedule on low feed starting week 2. 

Or should I continue what I'm doing for another week until they're a little larger?

One looks a touch droopy. Think it needs some extra watering. 😬

Looks good. You should water till 10-20% runoff every time and keep the coco wet all the time. At this stage water in a circle around the seedlings making its roots grow to reach the water.
