First seedlings

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by 3rd Stone, Nov 15, 2002.

  1. I've got a 6 sq/ft grow room with mylar and 200 watts of "Gro-Lux, Wide Spectrum" flourescents (supposed to be the best flouros out there). I started with pop-up Peat Pellets and 8 bag seeds from some very high quality smoke. I'm hoping for 2 or 3 healthy ladies to make it thru to the end. So far after 5 days I've got 3 broken thru and about 1 to 2 inches high. What I noticed is a single taproot has broken thru the bottom and coiled around a bit. Is this normal? Should I transplant already?
    Also what is the best potting soil to get? One that is high in nitrogen or one that is high in phosphate? I already bought Shultz's "Moisture-Plus" potting soil with the numbers .08-.12-.08. Is this OK? Speaking of fertilizer, what is the best fert to use during the 3 stages of it's cycle(seedling,veg,flower)? I do know to use a super-bloom formula or something that is high in phosphate during the flower stage but what about the other two? How often do I fertilize?
    This is my first time growing and I want to learn from people out there actually doing it. Thanks for any and all help.
  2. Yes, Just pop the pellets and seedling into your growing containers and watch! good luck
  3. I forgot, don't use any ferts for the first few weeks ok, then you only need to fert about once a week, no need to kill them with over fert! Containers ideally need to be 3-5 gal capacity ok.
  4. What kind of fert do you recomend? Shultz? Miracle-Gro? Peters? Should I start with one that is higher in nitrogen content?
