    Grow #5 Has Been Frustrating

    So, since I last checked in, my 3 seeds from Paul all germinated and poked up through their peat pellets successfully. What I've done in the past, since I grow in coco/perlite, is to water only with a little bit of cal-mag added at first. I've always used general hydroponics nutrients, and I did some research to find out if there was a shelf life on them. All I could find said no, so I used what I had from my last grow a couple years ago. These little babies have struggled to stay alive, and grown very little, so I decided to try new, different nutes. I ordered "Foop" nutrients, and my girls sprung to life. They are a month behind schedule, but looking healthy. One of them has a tiny stem, and I hope it gets stronger because it's struggling to hold up it's new growth. Anyway, that's my story. I'm not planning on using stuff that's been sitting on the shelf for a while!
