August 2020 Grow Challenge Journal

I have always vegged my seedlings for around 8 weeks so I decided I should start my seeds today August 7th. I am growing three strains all from ILGM. 9 seeds in total. 3 are Bruce Banner by ILGM, 3 are Black Widow and 3 are Skywalker OG. I've planted all of them into rapid rooter plugs and the plugs are placed into 18 oz party cups filled with a 50/50 blend by volume of coco coir and perlite. The mix has been rinsed and buffered, but I also chose to water in with a dilute solution of water and cal/mag. In the past this has prevented any signs of cal/mag deficiency. The input and output EC are currently both at 0.4. Hoping for 100 percent germination.

Nothing new today. It's been 24 hours since popping the seeds into the rapid rooter plugs. Tomorrow morning I will take them from under the light and remove the little pieces of rapid rooter plug covering each hole and see if theres anything happening yet. It normally only take a few days to get seedlings going this way. At a minimum I will mist the cups with the same 0.4 EC solution of water and cal/mag just to keep the plugs evenly moist until the sprouts appear.

Beginning of day 3 since planting the seeds. Checked down inside the rapid rooters and I can see germination on at least half of them already. Guessing the sprouts will start appearing tomorrow.  Just gave them all a small amount of cal/mag and water at 0.4 EC to be sure they stay hydrated as its been very warm the last few days.
