    #4595524 - 08/29/05 05:44 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

ive got a bunch of little pots with germinated seeds just beginning to sprout up in a mix of 60/40 coir/perlite. i have larger pots to transfer the good ones to, and big-ass pots for the final transplant. anyways, i know a good amount of this grow will be improvisation and will be a learning experience, but id like to list out the materials im working with and maybe get some opinions from the more experienced growers here since this is my first grow.

ive currently got: coco coir, peat moss, fine vermiculite, perlite, and bloodmeal & worm castings on the way. ive also got horse poo available that i might be able to use in a tea or something.

so with those above materials, any tips you vet growers could give me? :laugh:

(and yes, i know about overgrow.com :wink:)

thanks

lol i know. :wink:

they are outside right now so they can get some good outside air to help em sprout up, but once they get an inch or so big they will be moved inside.

any growing tips?

yeah, put them inside before they catch the borg and start flowering due to the light cycles

you know you cant start plants outsdide then take them in, they go buggy and turn all cobwebby and spotty.

once you get the borg inside resistance, is futile, say goodbye to all your plants, even the legal ones

okay, i went to walmart last night. they didnt have shit for lighting. the best they had was a 100w spiraled flouresant. so these guys will be with the 60w Cool White for a while longer. i bought one of those little clip-on fans to give 'em a breeze to help strengthen them up.

questions:
what could be the problem if my little sprouts are looking sort of weak, like where they dont stand up straight, just kind of lay down in the dirt?
how often should these young plants be watered?

thanks.

fucking dammit. my plants look like shit. they are wilting and just laying down in the dirt. plus i just discovered little gnats fucking everywhere. damn why cant i just grow a simple plant! im starting to feel like a failure. at life.

damn i dont even care if i grow mediocre shit i just want it to fucking GROW. and honestly just some shit that i can smoke. out of about 12 seedlings, only one looks like it has a small chance of going somewhere. blah blah blah feel sorry for me.

k im prolly going to have to find a different spot to grow 'em, and invest in some better shit.

pick up some incandescent flouro's... those spiraly ones! 3 of those surrounding a plant about 2 inches away will grow you like an 8th or more of dank chron. search overgrow for some flouro grows.

How far from the lights are your seedlings? Sounds like they have stretched, then fallen over from being too far from the light. You want those fluros only a couple of inches above the plants.

right now its just a real shit setup. but im starting to realize the major flaws in it, and hopefully ill soon get to the skill level WHERE I CAN GROW ONE DAMN PLANT. :tongue:

but anyways, the light isnt above the plants right now, its off to the side. its just a 60w Cool White bulb too, and i think it might have actually burnt up some of my plants. but you live and you (painfully) learn.

thanks for help so far you all

homie let me recomend that you read the over grow faqs, and the join www.cannabisworld.org its a much more controled comunity than OG, the gnats you saw were fungus gnats the larvae ate your roots and sucked the life right out of your plant. trust me OG and CW will make you grow like a pro.

another note, normal light bulbs are SHIT they produce about 2% light usable by plants CFL or compact flouresent you know those twister bulbs they produce a much hier precentage of usable light and produce alot less heat at half the wattage. also growing 1 plant from seed is a horrible idea as you have a 50% chance its going to be a male which doesnt produce any bud.
