So I'm calling this grow 1.5 because I'm still in the process of growing my first plant! But I'm starting to more little seedlings and I'm going to be doing the 50/50 coco coir to dirt mix instead of my initial plan to just use super soil. 

ANYWHO

Lights - 1 mars hydro eco 49 (102 watts) and 130 watts of CFLs .one plant will be under the led and one under the CFLs

50% Soil: pro mix mycorrhizae pH .Ingredients: 

  • SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (65-75%) 
  • PERLITE 
  • LIMESTONE 
  • WETTING AGENT 
  • MYCORRHIZAE - GHA297 TECHNOLOGY 

50% coco perlite mix. final pot size will be 7 gallon.

Seeds - my buddy Gave me some randoms out of his weed (pure kush he calls it) so they are plain ol' mystery seeds! 

1 plant will be in my 2×4 tent with my other big plant and my other in the closet of the same room about 2×6.

I will be using the general organics nutrient line up and some grotek kick start for seeds .

thursday, October 4

I started off by using the grotek kick start at 1/4 strength and I just lightly sprayed each rooter until they were a bit TO moist, and then just squeezed the extra water out. I then planted the 2 seedlings and put them in an ice cream bucket under my sink for about 24 hours. I then  went and bought a tray and dome and put the rapid rooters under the mars hydro light.

The seeds popped out of the dirt on October 7 but they weren't picture worthy yet! But I start my day count the day they come out of the dirt. 

Unfortunately I accidentally deleted the 1st couple of pics for the one plant. But here's the other!

I think its doing amazing considering I planted it 4 days ago! The other one is about the same not as tall and it came out straight

On Monday it was looking pretty normal a few inches tall .On Tuesday morning I came back and the root was sticking way out of the bottom of the rapid rooter! It was so wild haha so heres an illustration by yours truely!

Sunday, October 14

the 1st day of week 2! 

So right now the seedlings are actually just in 100% of that pro mix I mentioned, i started a little bit before I decided to do the coco and soil. But they are only in 4" peats right now .

I'm going to be transplanting the plant AND the pot because it's a peat pot .I'm a little unsure of this method, how long does it take for the pot to break down? 

So far no nutrients have been added accept the rapid start and I did some daimond black and 1/4 strength maybe 4 days ago .I haven't done any nutes yet because I burned the one a bit with the daimond black. But I think they are ready for nutes!

First,

I love the write ups! Please feel free to post everyday or several times per day. There is no limit and we love it!

Second,

I don’t think I can remember another grower ever posting an illustration for their plant! Just awesome! 

Third,

seedlings look good! Pics are a week old- so hoping the last week has been good to them. 

I look forward to following this journey to your first harvest! Thanks for sharing!  ?

Looking good. Try to take pictures under normal lighting and they will look even better  ? !

I am really glad you started your journal too. I really think there is no better way to learn how to grow than to keep a journal and receive helpful feedback and support from the community. 

To tag me, you have to put a dash, dr-coco. It is a pain, so I am going to try to change my username so that it can be just drcoco (no space)

Looking good @jeezusjuiicee I usually start my seedlings under cfls for the first couple weeks but looks like you're doing just fine. I think they grow faster under the cfls forthe first couple weeks imho. In regard to the peat pot it won't "break down" as you would think. Having it in a peat medium will only prolong decomposition. But the peat will take a very long time to break down to the point of decomposition in a peat medium and overall you will still be growing half peat and half coco. Promix isn't technically soil.

Nice write up. I post stuff a lot too so no worries mate. ?

No wonder I couldn't tag you! Haha. And about the lighting... I know I know the 1st half of my 1st grow I was taking it out of the light to take pictures .but then I got super lazy and stopped xD I'll start doing that again for the new ones! And thank you @chefomj I wont use the peat pots! Glad to have you here 🙂

Sorry about that it said the page wasn't working and didn't realize I posted that many times. My bad, I tried deleting them but don't think I can.

I am trying to imagine the reaction... I'd probably get mugged

Yeah, that was odd - may have been my fault. I tried to delete the duplicate comment probably at the same moment that you did.

I also just did a little update that may have triggered the problem in the first place.
