Did I fuck my cacti up?
    #4605064 - 08/31/05 08:51 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

ok well i had just planted them and was bottom feeding them.. with just like cotton serving as a wick.. after 1 day i noticed that the soil was pretty soggy.. so i removed all the water and they are currently just sitting under grow lights.. about a foot away from the plants.. do u think they will be ok? or are they already ruined from too much water.. possibily burnt from being too close to the light.. need some tips.. thanks

What kind of lights?

I've got a few pedros under HPS and I only water them when they start to look a tiny bit wrinkled. I've been told that pedros will tolerate wet feet but most other trichs wont.

When you think it needs water, wait a week.

them = seedlings
or
them = cuttings
?

you could easily torch seedlings from 12" away with a hot light, but if you're using fluorescents, you could move the light even closer. cuttings can handle a brighter, hotter light.

they are seeds.. not sprouted yet.. idk im using 2 agro lights i bought at home depot.. 80 watts i think maybe?.. sounds about right 60-80.. so as long as i continue to let them dry they should survive? or do u think they are already dead?

let it dry out and the seeds SHOULD be fine, but you might do them some justice by backing the lights off about 6 inches.
