Ended up gettin some seeds because my cuttings guy keeps messin me about!
so ive got a few Qs
ive just checked on my seeds an they have cracked so ready to transplant soon ive got some 4x4" square peat pots whitch im goin to use filled we canna coco pro.
So ive had some tap water standin for bout 36Hour PH 7.6, what should i ph down to? or is 7.6 ok for seedlings?, i know you ph down to 5.6-6.2 when growin in coco should i go for 5.8?
also should i add a weak dose off A&B or rhiz or both i know the rhiz is for the roots so it should help but will it kill off my seeds if i add to early i was thinkin wate till its sprouted out of the coco an has its 2 leaves 1st.........but then that brings me to... your not ment to water coco with just water or you may wash away the buffers does this apply with tap water an will it affect me waterin my seedlings in the 4" pots....do i need to add or am i allrite with jus tap water for now?
so once ive got the above figerd:
should i soak the coco pro 1st before transplantin my seed,
i know how to transplant in soil is it the same with coco? u put seedling root up in a 1/2" - 3/4" hole an carefully cover is that right for coco or is there another method?
and finally will i be allright puttin my just transplanted seedlings under my 600w dual spectrum bulb or will it fry them?.....ive got a air cooled reflector an when the light is runnin theres hardly any heat from it you can touch the glass an its like semi warm an i can get it bout 8" from plants so would i be ok havin it like 12-16" away from my seedling?
and if the answers yes it will fry them,..... then im goin to have to sort another light out quick cos the 600w is all i got,..... and will my seedlings be ok till tomorrow before i transplant so ive got time to get sorted, the root has just cracked out a little about 2mm?
Sorry to go on abit but this is the 1st time ive grown from seed an my 1st time in coco(other grows NFT) so i need all the help i can get?
so please get in touch guys cheers
