  1. First grow, white widow [FONT=&quot]feminized seeds ,help needed.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]This is my first attempt at growing. Please see the attached photos. I germinated the seeds using the paper towel method which appeared to have gone ok. I initially had my seeds under a little plastic [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Propagator [/FONT][FONT=&quot]and they made rapid progress. However when I relocated the seeds to my grow room which I had planted in fibre pots (see photos) and placed them under my 125 watt CFl they appear to have stalled. The only think which has happened since I move them to under the light in the grow room is they seem to have started to grow at an angle.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I purchased the soil from a grow shop; I'm really not sure how much water I should be giving them. I know I should only water them when they are very dry, but I don't know how much water I should give them? I'm currently only giving each plant approc ¼ cup of water every other day.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] I'm currently using the 18/6 timing for the lights. I have an extractor fan and a fan at the bottom of my grow space. There is also fresh air entering my grow room which you can see to the right of the photo.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]You can also see the bigger pots I'm planning on using, when should I transplant the fibre pots into these bigger pots?[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I have also noticed the tips of the little leafs have started to go yellow. The temperature in the grow room goes from 17 [/FONT]Celsius [FONT=&quot]to 28 [/FONT]Celsius [FONT=&quot]throughout the day. The light is approx 6 inches from the plants. The seeds were planted into the fibre pots 9 days ago. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]When my plants are ready for the flowering stage I will transfer them to the flowering area which has a HPS 400 watt light.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Thanks in advance, please help.[/FONT]

  3. Hi
    thanks for replying to my post re my ww. I planted my seedlings into the bigger pots. I just made a hole big enough in the big pot and dropped in my seedlings which were in their fibre pots. i covered most of the stem with clay.

    The seedlings really do look as if they have not grown at all in the last few days. And they are under a cfl 125 watt. I have an hps 400 watt ready but I thought I wasn't supposed to use that light for at least another few weeks. The cfl is within 6 inches of the plaants, and temp is usually between 20 and 28 day and night
    I would really appreciate any help, with my ladies. the plants are 11 days old..

  4. Hi

    Thanks folks for your advice and assistance with my first grow. Since I posted last I have noticed each of my three plants have developed another two leaves. I moved the light (125 CFL) closer to the plants and I have re-arranged my pots so they are closer to the light. As the pots are quite large it's difficult to get them into the perfect position. I will certainly pick a smaller pot for my next grow.
    I will continue with the 18/6 lighting and water only when required. I have nutrients for seedlings when should I start including this with their water.
    Thanks again for your help, I'm sure I'll be back with more questions!
