That is one weird start Cali man. Why didn't you amend the soil? Time constraints? Laziness ? I was draggin' ass putting things back together myself . Gotta watch those falling CFL's bruh! That same CFL front rolled over this way not too long ago! Didn't hit anything though. Never heard of putting seedings under 12/12 . Can't wait to see the outcome of this round. What's up with the issues with the second round man? Is that like a first timer stigma or something? I'm pullin' for ya homie!!! Sorry I can't give any insight. I just don't understand why they say soil is easier. Maybe the soil was too rich or something. PH balancing in soil seems like a challenge. Good luck always Cali man!!!!
