    And so it begins!

    Good luck buddy some advice from someone who just harvested his first grow yesterday be very aggressive with trimming keep in mind weed is a weed and weeds are harder to kill than the terminator though be smart and don’t do it all at once I feel like my grow was hurt most by just poor grooming and also have fans blowing directly on the plants not around them this will thicken stems thicker stems can carry more nutrients and poor grooming leads to poor light penetration I believe these two things hurt my grow most don’t let it hurt yours

    Good luck. Looks like your on the right road. You might want to get the temp up a little for germination.
    looking forward to some updates.

      Think spring when it comes to germination. Warm soil helps big time. With autos I plant seeds directly in the final pot. Autos are finicky and don't like transplanting. The less you mess with them the better. Keep the soil moist not soggy and in a week you should have some seedlings pop up.

      @PLeaf this is why I creep comments I didn’t know autos hate transplants one possible future fiasco averted

      PLreef yeah planted in their final pot as I heard they don't like being transported. But cheers for the advice!

    *An early update*

    After a stressful first night for the seeds, from the tent being very damp with water droplets building up on the walls and roof of tent due to the soil having been watered and situated in my garage (Temps below 20 and humidity topping out at 86%)

    I have had to relocate but hopefully this wont have stressed the germination process? But currently set up and now have an average temp of 26 and humidity at low 50s

        Well if that does not dim i would raise it now and get the tiny sprout a chance to grow upwards you can always lower it later. Don't let them dry out water real gentle else you'll uproot. Some folks use just a mist for these but you can't do it under lights that are on. Good luck and congrats on your new babies. Gotta be ontop with those lights be safe

        SoOurbudgal The light is dimmed on at 50% at the minute, shall I turn the dim up and send it up higher perhaps? And yeah ready for a water tomorrow I think (got a few gnats flying around from house plants so don't want to encourage the blighters aha)

      Watered last night with a slight dribble of water with a splash of PH down around the seedlings and just checked today, the plants have some slight yellow speckles on now and one baby leaf that is growing through looks slightly damaged.

      I have not fed any nutrients yet and cannot test the pH of water properly as I only have a cheap pH water tester (waiting till payday to get a better one)

      I am growing under a Mars Hydro Ts1000 LED light currently sitting at 21 inches from soil at roughly 80% dimmed. **Edit i have raised to 25 inches now at 80% dim.
      I have cal-mag at the ready so would it be worth putting a splash of that in with its next feed for the time being?

      Temps are currently 25c and 55% humidity
      Night is 19.8c with 50% humidity

      Any tips muchly appreciated thank you!

        Good start. DON'T splash pH down or calmag directly on soil. Put it in the water you feed them.

          Yeah I've been putting the pH down in the water and giving it a good stir and watering from a watering can with a flower head on. This was the plan for that cal-mag but haven't fed them anything yet

        Just a little update for everyone. They have been sprouted above soil for just over a week now and are starting to get their first three finger leaves coming through

        Hi all, hope everyone is well! Just a little update on how things are going so far.

        Both plants are roughly 4 and half inch tall and 18 inch away from the light. Started half strength nutrients on 25/04

        Currently on Day 23 from sprout. Both plants are looking decent. I have started a slight bit of LST so lets see if i've done it correct and nothing too bad happens haha
