URGENT post 1st flush help
    #11407448 - 11/07/09 09:57 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, so my casings are dry, theres not enough perlite in the bottom, but if i misted them it'd be fine, this is the problem i have.

I read that you should leave the pins that are in there after u pick the first flush.. are these just aborts and need to come out with the flush?

second pic is a close up, keep in mind both pics are post 1st flush casings, the mushies on them were small like these for instance

Not being coy, thats a different casing altogether but i wanted to show an example.. these are all from shotgun terrarium FC's.

- If i add more perlite will it solve some issues?
-I just got past consistent contam of my grow experience, im sterilizing my 50/50+ in quart jars. I pc for 45 mins at 15 psi.
- Are those just aborts and needed to come out with the first flush, which then should've been followed up with a recase, and put back into fc, because at that point i could've mistedthem again, and can i mist pins? its a toss up debate ive read on and on do it dont do it, CAN I???

Please shoomanites please guide me! im reading now surfing as fast as i can, i have another casing with those "pins" or if they are, "aborts" on them, and either i let them go or i need to pick them asap and recase. any post is so appreciated

you can mist pins, but don't go crazy. FAE is going to be very important for a re-hydration misting regimen.

the 1st flush dull/grayish pins are aborts. get them out of there, they're just taking up space and nutes.

You can fill the whole tray with water overnight to rehydrate the substrate, and then pour off any that didn't soak in the next morning.  You're also supposed to be misting a few times daily.  If you fail to mist, your substrate will perform poorly and the fruits will be small.
