Welcome back to the Coco & LED grow journal. A quick recap to bring you up to speed in case you haven't been following along so far. The entire CANNA line of products is being used. The plants, which are autoflowering White Domina, are a couple weeks in from germination; and after germing went from rockwool cubes, and then into soil while under two T5 lights, they got moved under the LED a week ago today.
Two days ago the plants were transplanted into the 3 gallon coco buckets. And they were given there first dose of nutrients (about 1/4 strength) with the first watering.
After experimenting with proper light heights, it seems that it might be best around 18 inches for now. If anyone has input there, it would be greatly appreciated. But wow, the girls have really responded well to the everything. I can't say for sure if it was the coco, nutrients, or finding the right height for the light, that made something click, but I'm sure each one had a role it making the plants respond. They're developing some nice, healthy, leaves and the stems are starting to thicken up nicely. I've got a couple pics here of one of them.
And an update, I had 4 seedlings. The runt I mentioned before didn't make it. I tried everything I could to save it but it wasn't meant to be. And the third one still hasn't done anything, no true leaves ever developed. I still have it under the light and moved it to coco with the others so we'll see. Keep you guys updated on that one. But for now, main focus is on the two that are thriving.
Thanks again for stopping by. I see the view numbers going up, but no feedback? Come on, spread the knowledge and help me out here! I'm still learning so any words of wisdom will be taken with gratitude.
That's all for now, update again in a few days. See you next time!
