I got about 15 seeds and started to germinate them about 4 days ago. One of them is already germinated and the "white thing" (sorry not sure what its called) is comming out of one of the seeds, so i decided to would be a good time to gather equiptment. I'm thinking i'm going to grow them outside but i'm going to get them started inside. I'm planning on using cfl's to grow them at first then put them outside. What voltage should the cfl's be? Also, i'm quoting this from the Germinating 420 thread "Your potting mix should be loose and not too lumpy. I plan on just using WalMart soil, its all good. Dont add fertilizer yet it should have what it needs for about 24 days. Your choice of pot is optional... I recommend something at least 6 inches deep, and be sure and check for lots of drainage holes.Party cups with holes at the bottom are my choice for now..cheap n easy.. Fill your pot with your soil, water it well, and set it aside to drain. Do this before you start messing with your seeds. Once the pot has drained 10-15 minutes, take a pen, a screwdriver.... anything small and pointed, and make a slight depression in the soil in the middle of the pot. Your seeds want to be planted only about 1 inch deep.... no more. Transfer the germinated seed into the hole you made very carefully... this is the moment you are most liable to damage your sprout. Use careful fingers, or a tiny spoon to move it... do not squish or roll it around... just move that baby. It will be beneficial if the root tip lands pointing down, but I hear that moving them around too much is more dangerous than letting the tip point sideways. Just be careful... this is not a step to do when you are stoned . Cover the seed with a bit of loose soil, and stop. Never pour water on a planted seed.... this is why we watered and drained the pot first thing- the soil should already be wet enough. Cover the pot with something to keep moisture in..such as baggies as shown down below. You are trying to keep the dampness in, as you will not be watering an unsprouted planted seed. It is fine the way it is You are trying to keep the dampness in, as you will not be watering an unsprouted planted seed. It is fine the way it is. Set your pot your growroom, hopefully already set up!. Leave it alone. While you are waiting, there is a lot going on. Cannabis sends out a taproot first... your little root tip is growing and getting settled in before it allows the sprout to break ground. Check your pots a couple of times a day, but do not water them, and do not poke them... leave them alone!" I'm going to plant my germinated seed today. Once its planted and NOT sprouted should i put light on it or wait for it to be sprouted first?
