 Well here we go again. Ive germinated the seeds n put them into final pots yesterday. As u can see i added a bit of coco i had left over to the middle part about half of fingers deep so the seedlings can adapt to the nutrients slowly. So yea fingers crossed i should have a nice bit of smoke new years to see me through the worst of the winter lol. Any advice or tips mind, let me know guys please.

Great, mine were also sprouted in a day too. Looks to be a great start 🤞.

If you keep the cups on them prop up one side a little to allow a little air flow. About 4-5mm is enough to get some air moving. This can help prevent damping off caused by excessive moisture but still keep a bit of a microclimate around the plant. This helps harden off the seedlings a little getting them ready to be on their own. With the humidity in the tent at 85% you might not need those cups though.

Yea man thanks im doing ok atm. Im a bit scared to put anymore in cos of the mould towards the end of flowering. I did 4 plants once n had a little mould on the one plant, so a bit scared to put more than 3. Im looking at getting a new tent tho for nxt crop so il see wat i go with. I didnt ammend the soil lol i bought more, again i was afraid to chance it. Id hate to get halfway n then it goes tits up so thought get a new batch in. Hows u doing man u got anything goin atm x

@shirley-boi Yeahh that's fair enough, better to be safe than sorry although a filled tent shouldn't promote mold i would imagine you weren't circulating the air well, are you pumping the stale air out? defo wanna get that sorted before the next flower, I've been quite lucky I've never had a mold issue but had everything else go wrong lol so i probably push my luck more then I should with that!~

im on like my 3rd grow with the same soil now the amended soil really does workman you be surprised! as long you didnt throw it away never bad having more though xD i got a couple on the go atm but im forced to cut my electric so they gunna get really stressed 🙁 one was already struggling with root issues, so i cut the bottom of the pot and stuck it on another 40L pot. so got two stacked lol

The grow i got atm i didnt even remove the rootball from last grow and planted seed next to it and been fine they few weeks into flower now, they getting bit lighter in colour now but still been better than biobizz soil i got 

If your plants ever get lighter just chuck some charge and bio biz nutes and u good to go. dont ruin the budget replacing the soil each run xD test it first

@shirley-boi do you have a carbon filter?? where are you pumping the air from that? u should try get that as far away your grow as possible so you got a constant flow of fresh air, circulation is defo important before i had a tent i doing it under stairs pumping same air around was nightmare 🙁 

Yeahh i remember seeing your last grow look pukka! got me amazed with your lights at 100w to produce that like a 600w hps bulb :L x8 cheaper.

Yeah my plants loved the amended soil till mid flower then got a bit paler a few weeks in, just need to remove the rootball and give it good mix up with the ratio labeled, your want to get the re-cycle life for that though cant rely on just charge, or that wat you mean by booster?

My one advice would be start real small with the amount of water you’re giving them.

That ecothrive soil is pretty heavy/dense and holds onto water pretty well.

So while they’re small and until they’ve got a good few sets of leaves on them I would be watering with shot glasses and keep the humidity up. When the roots get going increase the water amount up slowly.

good luck man! I’ve grown some zkittle crosses before. Nice fruity smoke.

Yer man, at that stage the cups need to come off really. The breeze from the fan will help build stronger stems and the light can get to the leaves better too. Looking good Smile

Heres a little update guys. Cant believe how fast theyre growing. I didnt give an extra layer of soil yet as the tips on the leaves were starting to turn black, so was a bit paranoid it might have been the soil being too strong.

 Since taking the cups off it seems to av stopped thank God. So yea the temperature is 21°c the water is ph'd at 5.8, humidity is 84- 85%. Good 1st week so far exept the burnt tips.

water is ph'd at 5.8

That’s a hydro ph level Shirley-boi. Most growers shoot for 6.2-6.5 ph in soil.

As u can see guys the first 3 pics of 2 plants are coming ok after that little burn at beginning, but the 3rd one i haven't got a clue wat its upto. The leaves are wierd shape n looka bit twisted. Everything else seems fine for now tho. So a bit of a warning guys make sure u put a bit of something weaker in for the 1st 2 weeks or so so they can adjust and dont burn n cause damage early on. Fingers crossed it wont effect the crop much

 Just before taking the pics so the reading was wrong it was on 82 wen i went in there first. Ive got lights timed at 20 on 4 off n turned the lights up to 60% today from 45 to 50%. So fingers crossed next week will be as good as this one has been
