*****UPDATE*****Feb. 28, 2011*****UPDATE*****
Welcome back everybody to my first ever Coco & LED grow journal. It's the last day of February, and I just picked up my seedlings over the weekend. I have 4 Kannabia autoflowering White Domina seedlings that are ranging in age from sprouting up about 8-14 days, give or take since it didn't get recorded. The seeds were germinated using the paper towel method. When the seeds cracked they were put into rockwool cubes and placed under 2 T5 lights. Then they were recently placed into soil last week.
They have now been under my LED light for the past 48 hours, and for the most part I'm happy to say doing well. They are still in soil, 2 are doing better than the others and have responded to the light well. One still has yet to grow true leaves, but I'm thinking that it was one of the later to sprout. The last one, is basically dead, not sure exactly what happened to it before I got it, but it was super tiny when I got it, I'm talking like not even the first pedals grew all the way out. I came home from work today to find it laying down like it's lower vertebrae was missing right by the soil. I propped it up, hoping it can turn itself around. When I first got them 2 days ago, two had already formed first true leaves and one of those was starting its second set. Now, the one that was starting its second popped out its third today and the other is starting to push out its second.
I know I promised pics but I don't have the best setup camera wise and I can't seem to get my phone to focus in to take pics I'm happy with. Trust me though, they're coming soon. For now, you'll have to just deal with my written illustrations. But I do have two of the closet/light and seedlings under it; no close ups of seedlings yet, that's what I'm waiting on the camera for.
To all you helpful coco and/or LED gurus out there, any advice you can give is genuinely appreciated, especially looking for info on the following topics:
1. Light to plant distances for veg and flower
2. Best time to start using Rhizotinic? do you think applying a small amount might help to save my dying seedling?
3. Best way to transplant from soil to coco...should I just add in all the soil to coco or try to get as much off as possible without damaging roots?
4. I'm sure I'll think of some others later
As always, any friendly advice, helpful tips and pointers, and encouraging comments are welcome.
Thanks again for stopping by, I'll have another update soon.
