Growing bud

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by leotatted, Aug 11, 2017.

  1. I through a weed seed in some pot just to see if it will even grow. And it did. Ive just had it in a pot. Today i went out and bought a 40w CFL light after almost 2 weeks of it growing. I want to keep it alive. What else should I be doing.


  2. Getting it out of that bowl, adding more light, and burying that stem. You want a pot with drain holes, if that doesn't already have them. Cannabis doesn't like constantly wet soil.
  3. I'm also new. On my first grow.

    You should get a pot with holes on the bottom so the water can drain out. Also, the light needs to be closer. The plant is stretching/reaching for the light.
    This happened to one of my seedlings, and it tipped over, bent, and died because it couldn't support itself, being as tall as it was, and because I didn't support it like you did.
    Idk a whole lot about lights, so make sure you get an opinion on that, too.

  6. Okay ill add an extra light. And be careful on the watering. Ill also add more soil. Thank you for the help.
  7. Yeah i just added the light after almost 2 weeks. But i didnt know it was going to grow. So if it dies ill pop another seed in and try again with help im getting from this online forum. Thank you.
  8. You're the one that needs to leave. This is a forum that's for helping beginners. If you have a problem with beginner questions, go to another forum.
    He came here to learn. How about sending him one link (even, instead of being a dick?

  9. It'll be easier the second time, if it does die. Cuz then you'll know what to expect. After my seedling fell over, I planted my next seeds deeper then that one.

  10. First thing you need to do is put it in a pot with drainage and add 50% perilite. you can get it anywhere that sells garden stuff probably. If you don't do that it will almost die for sure. Then, move your cfl 2 inches away from the top of it. Now, don't water again untill it's a little bit dry. That should get you trough the next two weeks

  11. i wouldn't just add an extra light but i would put the lights about 2 or 3 inches from the plant to prevent anymore stretch.
  12. I just traded the pot. I hope i didnt shock it. If i remember, from shocking my other plant, i switched it carefully. And i will add more soil to also help support and hide the stem.
  13. That's a good idea. I'm not sure what kind of pot you used, but one that's open at the top, and not curved, is easier to transplant then the bowl shape because it just slides right out if you do it right.
