    MY FIRST PC GROW WAS A FAILURE DO TO POUR DRAINAGE! SO IM GOING AT IT AGAIN WITH A BAGSEED (TRAINWRECK) A BUDDY OF MINE GAVE ME.
    IM PLANNING TO USE FFOF SOIL BUT LAST TIME I DID THAT FROM SEED MY PLANT HAD AN OVERDOSE ON NUTES I BELIEVE WICH STUNTED ITS GROWTH.
    I STILL HAVE THAT PLANT ITS BEEN VEGGING FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND IT STANDS 1" TALL WITH A LITTLE BUSHY TOP (LOL)
    SO THATS WHY I DECIDED TO START A NEW SEED WICH IS GERMINATING RIGHT NOW WITH THE PAPER TOWEL METHOD!
    THIS TIME AROUND IM PLANNING TO BE MORE PATIENT WITH WATER AND HAVE CHECKED MY ENTIRE SETUP BEFORE I STARTED MY GROW! SO I WILL BE GOING 50/5O WITH FFOF AND REGULAR ORGANIC POTTING SOIL!
    NOW IVE ONLY HAD 1 SUCCESFUL GROW HOPEFULLYL THIS GROW GOES RIGHT I HAVE LEARNED ALOT FROM MY MISTAKES AND WILL TRY TO GET THROUGH

    Paint the inside of the CPU case flat white.

    Buy a temperature gauge with a wired "outdoor" sensor that you can wire inside. Reason being is that during flower you may want to know what your temperature are at night. Lower temperatures at night can help pull out colors you may want in your finished product.

    Sounds like a fun experiment though! Deffinately something I will be watching if goes well may just try one this next cloning session bongsmilie

    Hows it going poly! yea ima try it again with some good bagseed! but its been in the wet paper towel since wednesday afternoon and still no sprout!
    so i might put a new seed but still same trainwreck!

    idk where i can find those tempature guage things only ones i can find are fucking huge a waste of space!
    right now i have a little needle with a thermostat at the end so i made a little hole stick the needle inside the box and the tempature guage is on the outside!

    thats the one that has been vegging for about 1 month now lol!! thats all shes grown???

    Yea that's what im looking for too I can't find those tiny ones!?

    No lol it was a seed I found and put it in soil but that's all she has grown and I planted it on 11/28/12
    Better say it sprouted that day.
    I put her in ffof from seed so I think the over fertilized soil stunted the poor thing

    Thanks man.
    I got a question
    When the seed sprouts before I put it in soil I get the soil wet then throw the sprouted seed in less the half an inch in soil right.

    here is my question how exactly do u do all that everytime I do it when I go check on the seed again the root is all dried up and dead its the second time it happens but when I just germinate the seed in the soil it comes out good???

    your probably not burying the seed deep enough out of fear of damaging it.

    rapid rooters are the way to go with seeds.

    How deep does it have to go...
    Lol that's what she said haha

    i notice that the top of the soil is dry the next day..

    I put another seed in but this time just in soil
    I'm not doing the paper towel method

    not too dep but you got to make sure keep the soil damp if the top is drying out thats an issue, cover youi pots with baggies.(about 1/2" deep or about a 1/4 a thumb

    Ok so none of the seeds sprouted sucks ass lol..

    it it seems that the stunted plant has finally recovered lots

    Of new growth in it really bushy small little 5 leaf sets

    Will post pics once I get a chance so I might just grow this little baby

    Here are some pictures of my poor baby.
    I didnt think she?? Would have recovered but from the looks of it she is coming along the road of recovery.
    New growth beautiful leafs. She has been under 18/6 for 1 month and almost 2 weeks.

    So at this point should i just already switch to 12/12 or that month wont count in growth!
    Since its still the same size.
    I know most of you guys already through this thread to the trash. But it helps me learn from my mistakes in the future
    when i write about it! Thanks

    Come on anybody should I make a new thread?

    If anyone reads this help me out here please.

    My stunted plant the one that has just recovered if I try uncle bens topping technique. Will it dramatically stress it or will she be ok.

    Also I got a sprout on 1/11
    its look beautiful already =D
