-Fox Farm Ocean forset soil.
- 2 Green House Seeds Super Lemon Haze (All seeds femanized)
- 1 Dinafem Seeds Shark Attack (fem+free)
- Dinafem Sweeds Sweet Deep Grapefruit(fem+free)
- 1 Reggie seed my friend gave me
- 2 cfl bulbs. Not 100% sure about the specs(will add picture)
- A germination dome
- Heating mat that i keep under the dome
- Thermometer that usually reads 75-82 degrees (did drop to 69-73 for 1 night accidently tho)
So i started with my reggie seed about a week ago. Did the paper towl germination and everything went well. Popped Regina into some rockwool and gave her some 5.8 ph water. She sprouted pretty well. Then a few days later(this is when i started a real log) Feb 2nd i planted 2 SLH and the Shark attack(Shakira) into the FF soil. The grapefruit never germinated... .
They all started off pretty well, i thought because i didnt know better but after looking at my plants and everyones pictures, my plants look like giraffes. I started giving them all 18/6 of light and initially had the lights maybe about 6 or 7 inches away from the time they sprouted up until last night when i lowerd it down to about 4 inches. I also dropped a magazine on Regina and she suffered a little tiny dent in her stem, i hope that doesnt kill her either. Regina started to droop the day after and because she is in rockwool i figured she was thirsty and probably hungry. So i watered her and gave her FF grow big. i measured it properly i believe, and since she is my free test subject i added General Hydroponics Rapid Start Root Enhancer just to see what it would do to her. Today i lowered the lights to 2 inches because i am unsure if they will die from stretching.
Note: I kept the dome covering them the entire time. Not sure if i was supposed to take it away or not this early.
Any advice would be appreciated. I also plan on getting C02 pads tomorrow to help them. Im also bracing myself for intital failure and started germinating 3 more SLH seeds. I also have a 4x2x5 grow tent i plan on using later with a 600w hps/mh light set when they get a little older. Didnt want to throw them right in there.
