    Saturday I transferred my seedling into my grow tent (dr60) with a 300w led light and into bigger pots also and the leaves started to drop down and look quite sad but this morning they seemed to have perked up a bit, any advice please

    Agree^
    you could be doing a whole lot worse.


    ..... did you water thoroughly after the transplant?

    IMO
    They like to be watered in the first time then i let them dry the top a bit before i water again....

    They look fine though continue on:)

    Yea what nafydad said :)


    Nutrients at this stage are tricky as a new grower.

    In my opinion you didnt over fert it or you would see the tips yellow ... so thats good you didn't nuke it :)...

    They look like they are a little droopy probably from transplant (watering thoroughly with ph water and b vitamins helps this )

    Should be fine to give her 1/4 strength nutes with no added crap.

    If it where me i would make a very light 1/4 strength or less nutrient mix with some b vitamins. Ph and water it till the coco is EVENLY MOIST. Not sopping wet cause the young roots still like to breath .

    Now if your pots where wet id say they where drooping from overwatering ... funny how that works..... its all about the roots being moist but still able to breath

    Hope this helps I've had some Jameson lol

    Optimal temp: 64F
    Optimal ph: 6.2-6.8
    Optimal humidity: 65% veg 50% flower

    Invest in a hygrometer, a ph meter and never overwater. Thats about all it takes.

    Magnesium is a very important nutrient. Try adding epsom salts every 3rd watering.

    You definitely don't need to feed them when you transplant except for the exception of things like kelp, superthrive, or B1 products to minimize transplant shock but even those aren't necessary. If you just transplanted they'll have a while before they need to be watered again. When you first transplant make sure the pots are very thoroughly saturated to be sure that there aren't any dry pockets and then don't water again until the pots are much lighter from the water being used by the plant and evaporation. Watering any sooner will start to drown the roots which is just as bad for a young start as letting them get too dry.

    Well ive done it for my self and poured 1/4 strenght nutes on a baby seedling and didnt fuck up a thing..
    Shes still going...

    And i was sure she was going to show me some burned tips.

    Kelp b1 and superthrive are not needed but can be extremely helpful in lowering plants stress and good for the roots (kelp)

    Coco can be pretty inert but i like a target ph of 6

    Sorry i like to give easy to follow tips with out all the details to confuse peeps.

    Cause ive seen many get lost in the details and end up in the plant help section :)

    All just my experience and oppinon in 15 years worth of this

    Im not a phd

    Just my 2 :)

    I start seeds in soil like roots b2 which only has rock dust and worm castings and don't need to feed for a couple of weeks if not longer depending on the size of pot. I used miracle gro twenty years ago when I was sixteen. Never again.
