Looking good there. Keep that little one healthy. They help you when you're grieving. For real.

Sawyer, nobody ever expects anything like this.  That's what makes the shock so sudden.  I've been there, times three.  The only thing that kept me from "joining in" was knowing that my doing so would cause many people the same kind of anguish I was going through.

 

Stick around...if you need to hear a voice, man, send me a pm and I'll get you my phone #.  Take care of yourself...

K&G, thank you, and thank you everyone. I do appreciate all the concern and kind words. I've been around death all my life but suicide so close to me is new. Like everything else it will get better. 

No new updates on the ww yet, just a waiting game now. Slowly comin up.

I got a few bucks worth of gift cards and I was trying to figure out what to spend them on that could help my plant, going through amazon. Any suggestions? I have about 60 bucks to spend. 
I haven't really looked at much or considered my other options, the only thing so far is a 75w led light that I thought might be cool to add with my cfl's. I'm open to any suggestions.

Right now its squishy because I watered last night. I usually let it dry before I water again. Before I would spray the top with water kinda like rain but I was worried it wasn't getting deep enough

Let it dry a bit more which actually encourages the root system.

Alright I will try that. I was just worried it would hurt it if it went too long without water. I'm still a noob.

PB is right, when you let the soil dry out it does a couple of things. It actually allows a little more O2 to get to the root which is good but what I feel is even better is it forces the roots to not only stretch but also to form more of the smaller secondary root tips to grow off of the main roots. What this does is promote a more vigorous growth above ground. You see the bigger the root mass the bigger plant. Also, those extra Little root tips help for greater nutrient uptake. It seems counter intuitive but works great. I now treat my plants a little rough at time and they always seem to reward me. I will be doing it throughout my grow and will attempt a few VIDs for a better explanation when I can.

That's interesting. I never knew that, thank ya. I'm just worried it won't recover? It seems like it hasn't grown much at all for a while. Next time I'll stick with my jiffy pellets and soil.

Every time I come on here it seems that I learn something new, that's why I like it here :)
I'm hoping my little seedling will pull through, it looks kinda rough right now.

The only seeds I have left are auto skunk #1, auto amnesia, and two reg jack herer. I had a fem skunk 1 but I lost it somewhere lol. I would be okay with running two autos. From the jack herers I've seen, they get huuuge and I don't think I could fit them in my little box unless I LST'd the shit out of them lol. So unless I can find that skunk 1 i guess I'll pop the two autos if this little guy dies unless anyone wants to see the jacks if it's possible. I really wanted this WW to work out :/

the WW is a mighty fine strain, I quit using jiffy plugs because of how acidic the peat is to the seedlings, they get a tail and straight into the dirt they go. hope that helps

Im hoping it will pull through. I've always heard great things about it. I'm not so sure about this seed starter.

Well, brother, I'm sure hoping that WW comes back and grows nice and hearty for you. The White Lavender I'm running has Widow genetics and they're getting big, thick, and heavy. So I sure hope your White Widow comes back and gives you a huge yield.
