Hello fellow blades my grow is finally on the way (A.K.A Bad Larry's guess why?) and is looking promising... A few questions tho for reassurances sake and some much needed advice. sthg to bear in mind where i live grow products are very hard to find, and usually lack proper instructions, so i have a few things coming in from over sea's namely some proper nutes for flowering and whateva else i really need i started from seed with 5 greenhouse SLH. only one seed managed to germinate effectively within 2 days it sprouted with a very healthy looking tail and now we are 12 days in and its looking good besides the lower brown leaves (check pictures). the rest of the seeds were left to germinate for a little longer with little to no results!! ! WTF, 1\5 ? that's really disappointing. so is that somewhat of a typical germination rate? i used the drenched paper towel and a plastic bag method and then switched to a cup of water after to increase the germination speed; zero luck. but atlease its feminized seed so while realizing that only 1 outta the 5 will be actually growing, i got my hands on some local seeds, generally (mids/highmids) not sure of the quality yet but they are native to Sinai, which probably means this is what MOSES used to smoke The grow space is still taking shape, some things are missing such as good ventilation so i'm opting to flush the room with fresh air every 2 days or so.. till my vent system arrives. the plan is to keep this as the veggie room and have a slightly smaller one with complete light isolation for flowering using a 400w HPS some environmental data: Temps: Between 21*c - 29*c (there is an AC in the room so temp is regulated easily and accordingly) Relative Humidity: 30% to 65% Nutes: using a diluted granular N P K (19 19 19) for now till i transplant then i think ill try to increase the Nitrogen Intake and add some more trace elements Medium: 1/3 moss 1/3 perlite 1/3 vermiculite (however the vermiculite i found here was grounded and very fine not rocky and granular like most pics) Lights: for Veg: 2x 100 watt FLO (3 cool 1warm) on 20/24 cylces pH: water: 6.8pH, soil mix: 7pH, water+nutes: TBC, pot-at-root-level 6.8pH This pic was take yesterday as i noticed the lower leaves are looking very bad?? is it identifiable, i'm still a noob but according to my readings is it an "immobile nute deficiency"? or is that normal cuz i noticed the pant sometimes sheds is brown seed color from the lowest nodes There is a picture of the soil medium after a few waterings and u can see the perlite turning slightly green (sortta like Algea) so is this a point of concern cuz it kinda looks like rot??
