    Hey guys I just planted 2 ak48 feminized and one sweet deep grapefruit feminized in 18oz solo cups with jiffy organic seed starter mix waiting to transplant into ffof. Currently they are under a Mars hydro 300 full spec led. One only popped its seed casing off yesterday and looks [email protected]&&'d one popped its casing off but never turned up (or green for that matter) but one was doing well. Till now.. It's on its second set of leaves and is starting to look droopy and has dicoloration on tips of first leaves I'll attach pics. I have calimagic, should I add some next feedin? Overwatered? Need to transplant? Need your input please?!? Thanks guys stay lifted

    Had similar issues with mine not getting out of seed casing. A set of tweezers work well to pry it off gently.

    How high is your light from them? I stay about 24" for the first week or so with my 300W LED... Could be slight burn at the leaf tips as first light hits it, new growth comes in when light is off.

    Just my first thoughts...

    You could def be right. I had it about 16 inches cause there was no real heat but something told me (besides you. Lol) to move it up about 6 inches. Hopefully that's the prob and not overwatering. I've never used this jiffy organic seed starter stuff before. Thanks for the input man

    Most will tell you to use something better to start and I wont argue... Im looking into the plugs for my next grow..

    That being said Ive use it as well, usually 1/2 full organic jiffy pots that go right into the soil... I use those so I dont have to deal with the fun of trying to get it out of the plastic solo cups, which usually ends in a mess of roots

    poor roots reaching out to dry soil all the way around their container. be good if that soil was flourishing with
    beneficial organisms and breaking down organic compounds for the plant to use.
    I water the soil completely, allow it drain through container holes and repeat when its dry and never have an issue.

    I have ffof.. You think I should maybe switch it on over? Unfortunately I had to wait for amazon to deliver my fox farms so I had already popped em in this organic jiffy..

    i think when you water you need to do it thoroughly and only when your dirt is drier.
    when I see roots in the bottom of a cup I transplant into a larger container and backfill
    with more dirt.
