  • Seedling/sprout question

    G'day All,
    I recently struck a seed using the paper towel method (can't beat it!), and when I was transferring her over to her new home, I noticed something unusual on her root..
    I am just wondering if anyone has seen it before, or knows what it is..
    She has broken surface, so it doesn't appear to be life threatening at this point.
    When i first saw it, I thought, 'root cap' or similar, but the colour looks similar to a mold or something like that..
    Anyone know what it is, will it affect her, etc.

    She will be planted into a bubbleponics system in the very near future, and this has root conditioners/tonics in the mix.

    Any help/ideas is muchly appreciated.

    KR,
    Damo.
    ..still on paper towel.. ..resting on perlite vermiculite mix..

      Hey BlueDe, welcome to the forum! It looks to me in the second pic that the taproot already grew beyond the dark spot, so I wouldn't worry about it. Show us pics of the seedling!

          Just look at her go!

          Thanks for tips, my first bubbleponics grow, so when i saw it i was like, "oh great-dramas before the roots get anywhere near the good stuff" lol!

          I will keep updates rolling, but for now, all systems are G-R-O-W

            Was just discussing this on another thread with someone else: if that shell doesn't come off, drop a little water on it, and nudge it off with a toothpick or tweezers, very gently.

            Isn't she adorable...

          Yeh. She's not in optimum conditions as of yet; growing with the indoor vegies under 130w 6400k cfl...
          ..until she meets bubbleponics and 400w MH.

            Love the avatar!! So friendly with his hand out like that!!

          I am finding that the freshies i pull out from under the cfl (was using a 14000k) respond brilliantly when i dump them under MH, and this girl is stuttering a little under the current 6400k.
          Most notable, is the stem length (longer under 6400k), and the leaf growth hasn't been as quick..
          ..mind you, they are under 24/0 with cfl, then go to 18/6 in the halide room.
          Treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen lol
