Planted germinated seed help

  1. Alright.. so i germed a seed and planted the seed today and it popped the surface hours later. I planted it about 1/2 inch down and since it popped i put it under light. The taproot looks exposed? I really dont want to screw up what seeds i have left..

  3. Should i keep it in light or darkness until the leaves come out? I dont want to screw up the taproot
     
  4. I usually sprout my seeds in my kitchen. At night I don't have lights on, so really it's up to you. It will sprout in the dark.

  5. Your tap root is under the dirt digging its way down. What you see is your stem to be. Keep it moist and keep the lights either A, off or B, ambient. Good luck

  7. For sure, just mist it instead of literally watering it, for now anyways.

  8. Heads up, weed roots do not like light. I’d recommend using duct tape on the sides of your cup.

  9. Once a seedling emerges from the soil it needs light. Keep the soil uniformly moist, like a wrung out sponge, not heavily soaked. You can put a darker color cup over your clear cup to block light to the root zone. When yo want to check the root growth take the darker cup off and examine the roots. When the net-veined roots reach the sides and bottom of the cup, transplant into a larger container. There is also no reason to pre-germinate the seed before planting. An overnight soak is plenty before planting.

  17. Keep those cfl close, like 2-3” away. It will grow into the light through the day so check in on it if you can. This will keep nice tight node spacing which is key to high yields.

  20. She looks happy. She should hit a nice growth spurt in the coming week once those roots spread out.
