  1. So I'm using ffof mixed with 50% perlite for my seedling germinating now I'm using a 150 hps light how far should I have it when it breaks the soil an should I but it under the light before it breaks the soil?
     
  2. Use your hand as a warming gage; hot to the touch probably not good. Should actually be an inch above leaves...but you have to be careful with the heat.Sent from my SCH-R530U using Tapatalk

WTF?start with it about a foot away and go from there.Back of hand is a good way for when they get a little bigger.Mjhttp://forum.grasscity.com/index.php?/topic/1269823-This-old-Hippies-Organic-Garden.This old Hippies Organic Garden.
     
  4. What's your thought on the lighting before it sprouts?

  5. first you should go get yourself a metal halide instead of a hps for now so you can veg for a couple weeks.  Using a hps during this time will make brances stretchy and may have to do some tying up later on during flower time. So metal halide for veg and seed, hps for flower  As far as for height, with a hps at that low of wattage i would get it as close to plant as possible without buring the top. just gotta see what your limit is.
     
  6. hps wont make the plant stretchy, nodes are actually tighter, but it will grow slower.
     
  7. Thanks for all the input I'm using the hps for the whole thing I'll get some pictures up as soon as I can Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum

  11. Seed is planted hopefully a sprout in a few days
     
  12.  
    Treat it like a cannabis plant.
     
  13. Can I water seed be for it breaks the solid ?
     
  14. Sorry I'm getting here alittle late lol. Did you germ it in a paper towel before you planted it? Or did you go straight to the soil. Well any who you can give it water but don't soak it. Just make the soil alittle moist and when and if it pops hopefully it does. The same rule applies don't soak it or no if and or buts about it your plant will die. I'm not hating on any of the info acouple of the people gave you but just ask someone on here that you know is very knowledgeable about growing before you go out on a limb and do it. I'm on here mostly all the time helping people. If you can't get me hopefully you can get Snoop or marvajuana to help you. Oh and last but not leasy GOOD Luck Broski.

    No problem man I check in here on the site usually every hour or 2 unless I'm busy. But at the moment I don't have shit to do lmao I'm off work all weekend. So ill be popping in to check on any questions you might have if someone answers before me they answer before me there's tons of blades on here I'm not the only vet on here by no means lol. But if u happen to have a question and nobody has answered it by the time im on here ill help you out. Or hell you can get my number through a private message if you want to just incase there is nobody to help. But most of the time there is but its just a matter of how long it is till they check in on your thread.   :)
