I do the 18-24 hour soaking method, then I transfer to moist paper towels. I do not use heating pads, as of now.

My organic soil mixture

Okay I didn't have time to input my soil mixture but now I do! 

Initially, my plants were in 40% happy frog and 60% HP CC (for aeration and better drainage)

My organic mixture for the pot up to 1 gallon is as follows:

Blood meal

Kelp meal

Bone meal

Bat gauno 

Azomite 

Langbenite

Dolomite lime 

I also have terp teas to supplement along the way with liquid seaweed.

I was generous with all the ingredients except langbenite. It will be generously applied in my last pot up to 7 gallons. It is extremely high in potassium. 

When i transplanted my seedlings to the 1 gallon, I coated my roots with Azos (beneficial bacteria).

In my last pot up going to coat my roots with Dynomyco (Myco). 

First time growing organically. Certainly a challenge. Hopefully what Im doing, works 💪😁

Okay its a slow start 🐢

My plants are growing but very slow. Im okay with that.....they are healthy and thats what matters. My humidity was low so added my humidifier for a rH boost. Its sitting at about 56%. Temps are perfect considering how cold it gets. 72-76°F.....heater cuts on at 72°F and shuts off at 76...

My assumption is, growth will pick up once roots are established better. Its been 28 days since drop in water....so theyre still trying to figure out life lol.

The top looks dry because I added more soil on top today....underneath is the watered soil. Both are great! Including my little Nemo who lost a Cotyledon. Was scared she wasnt gonna grow as fast, or at all. But she's good!

The serrated leaves are my fault! I burned them by leaving fertilizer on the leaf smh....but theyre good 👍

A Rookie discovery 😒

So, I found out why my Veg tent growth is so slow.....

I usually check temps an rh when lights are ON.....but never when they go OFF. Which is backwards thinking sort of. 

Lights on....temps/RH is perfect....

Finally looked at my govee readings for the past two weeks.....sighhh.....when lights go off my temps reached a low 60°F most days......some days 58°F......what a shame.......its been like this for a month! 

Problem fixed...had to make a few adjustments to the tent. Cranked up heater and slow exhaust out of tent down. I also daisy chained my flower tent to my veg.....its working perfectly. My veg tent now sits at 79°F when lights are off....the adjustments were just made TODAY. HOPING TO SEE MASSIVE GROW SOON!

Here's a pic of my plant from last update til today

Plants are working on 6th node! Waiting on pH pen to arrive.....I wasnt planning on measuring my water this organic grow but I think I should. My leaves are showing some pH issues.....or it could of been my environment 🙃 either way....Im getting both under control!

Light intensity

Sighhhhh I forgot Im operating my light at 50% and height 2.5ft away 😑 which could also be contributing to slow growth.....cranked it up to 100%....will dial back to 80% if I see curvature in leaves....

Gotta get it together quick! 🙄
