The shell I carefully got off with a pair of tweezers, got the shell a little wet and it came right off.. just worried the leaves aren’t open.. do you think they’ll open? Thanks

  2. I had my plant do the same thing but it just fell of a couple days later. [​IMG][​IMG]

  3. never pull the shell off. it builds the strength of the plant and i.think you are overwatering

  4. Give them a few hours and they'll look completely different

    Sometimes you have to otherwise the plant will die

  5. Probably the reason they are not opening is because the membrane inside the seed shell is still attached. Spray with water to soften it and gently pry it off with a toothpick. Good luck.

  7. Thanks guys, I feel a bit better now.. I did what you said.. sprayed a little water and gently pulled off the membrane. Worked great. This forum has helped me so much already.

  10. I highly recommend that you add about 30% perlite to your soil when you transplant. Good luck.

  11. Little update on the children, moved to a bigger tote, and upgraded my lighting to a 600w LED grow light and a 75w grow light. The 3 AK47’s are looking pretty good.. The pineapple chunk has popped, also a pure power has popped.. I lost the fruit punch Auto which sucked but I know it happens. 3D2BAB18-3361-4E05-AE5B-CDB1CDF6E967.jpeg 9D986253-3703-4EAF-9E5E-ECE17AA9B48F.jpeg

The 3 AK’s are taking off and now the pineapple chunk and pure power are looking good! I backed the light up to 18in and they seems to help a ton. I’ll keep updating
