Welcome brother. Glad your here. Looking forward to the grow Sent from my FIG-LX1 using Tapatalk
owes are pumped! me too! soil prep is underway for beginning of november germination✌️
So I officially got going on the 2nd of November, seeds scuffed, placed into paper towels, accidently skipped the pre-soak, but have not seen any negative impact. Added a bit of h2o2 to the water that I wet the paper towels with.
Germinated along side some cbd strains, jalepeno’s, tomatoes, chillis & cucumbers.
Cbd’s were first to pop, then the cucumbers then the choco’s. All choco’s have been planted into my seedling mix which consists of cocoperl @ 50/50, some dolomite lime, worm castings & compost then watered with plain RO & a bit of kelpak. 2 of the choco’s have broken ground now. All germinated indoors & under 24hr CFL lighting to get them going nicely. All under DIY humi-domes for the first few days, once I see the first true leaves I start acclimating them, by removing the dome for a few hours at a time & within a day or two the domes come off completely -this is where I have struggled in the past but I’ve been working on my germination method & I think I have it under control now.
4 days into their paper towel soak, gave them another 12 hours after this pic, added a bit of heat to get things going a bit quicker.
then into my germ mix & have 2 poking their cotyledons out as of this morning!
Peace for now!
Get rid of the domes. Those babies grow best when they are exposed to their environment from the beginning.
Im struggling to keep the climate in the sweet spot for seedlings. I don't keep the domes on for long, as soon as I see the true leaves I start removing the domes, typically 2-3 days from when they break out from the medium they're completely off. I also exchange the air twice a day. I'll start acclimating the chocos tomorrow though, as of now 4/6 are out the ground.
Quick Germ Update:
1 seed didnt make it, something in the medium chowed it, i think, found a bunch of flying ants in the medium & no taproot😱
Remaining 5 are all germinated & growing nicely.
