After all the trouble to get the darn things, it pays to invest some effort in to the grem'ing process.

Put down the Posted Image



You know my method, right ??

Boil tap water 5min.
Due this first, so it can cool while you do the other stuff.

Bleach sm. container(s) 10% solution.
10min.

Soak beans in Hydrogen peroxide 3% for 1/2 hour.

Raid First-Aid kit for gauze pads.

Dump bleach sol. out, rinse with the boiled water(cooled).

Clean big tweezers with iso alcohol.

Use tweezers to place gauze in containers.

Wet gauze with boiled water(cooled).

Remove seeds from H2O2 with tweezers, place on gauze,fold gauze over seeds.

Add a FEW drops of H2O2, a little bit only.

Seal containers, place in warm area, under 90F for sure.

If you want to peek at them, clean the tweezers with alcohol and use them to unfold gauze, don't put anything not sterile in container, watch what you do with the lid when you remove it.

from putting them in a pot of soil/less (whatever) mix. Make a depression with my thumb drop in seed brush soil/less mix ontop of seed push down "just right" keep damp and facing southeast toward morning sun watch them pop! keep in direct sunlight and wind at all times the wind stimulates the production of a growth hormone which increases the size of the stalk and overall vigorous health the growth.. i put a fan on our indoor girls to make them "dance". It really makes a difference! Of, course, I can only do that for part of the year, the rest of the year, we use Tet's method. :frown: Indoor girls are very fussy! GAAAAsmiley.gif

No it is not totally legal and if you did that you would go to jail, I mean smoke it on the street. Just like in some legal states, you must be a med user and grower to grow and use here,as well. There are strict guidelines here for that and all things must be met as well as a doctor's referral is necessary.

Peace and Welcome to GreenPassion!

Don't Panic.
Just from what you said I’m sure you’re giving your plants too much of a good thing. The directions on your nutes’ are geared toward more typically grown vegetables and flowers. Cannabis is, you know, a weed. It evolved to grow and thrive in conditions a lot of other plants wouldn’t survive in, but if over feed or over watered it’s too much for them to handle.
First thing is to relax, if their color is good and you don’t do anything to ‘em for days they’ll most likely be fine. They are after all a weed and therefore very hardy and hard to kill. You probably want to flush ‘em well and wait a few days to let ‘em dry before starting again with nutrients at ½ strength or less.
I would recommend you go to the Newcomers Questions, fill out the Grow Questions Template and post some pics to let the experts here help you help your little ones.
Good luck and don’t give up,
gv

Also if I'm using a double florescent should I go 24/0 or 18/6 which is better? How close should I have it to the new babies? Is heat good or bad what's a good temp?

First off, little seedlings DO NOT need any nutrients until the first round coloidal leaves have fallen off. Use the most bland, basic soil to plant seedlings in, with no fertilizers added to it if you can find it. Otherwise you risk burning the bee jeezes out of them. Less is more!

Also if I'm using a double florescent should I go 24/0 or 18/6 which is better? How close should I have it to the new babies? Is heat good or bad what's a good temp?


Depending on how new they are. Slowly get them as close as you can to the light with floros. Put your hand under the light. As close as you can. You are trying to see where the sweet spot is, where that light goes from warm to hot. They want to be warm, not too warm, but where it is just comfortable for your hand. My florescents are cool enough the plants can touch the tubes, but different lights have different hot spots. Once you figure that out, you will know what your goal is for them. The sweet spot for temp is 78f .

Peace

I germ'd my seeds in Jiffy Peat pellets. Got 100% germ. I put them staright into 10" pots under multi spec HID light. I have been misting them with 6.0 water 2nd day. Temp 77 to 79 degrees humidity 31 to 40 %. I'm afraid to put too much water. Don't want to drown the babies. When should I start adding more water and how much? I'm using Fox Farm soil. I'm a severe back pain patient trying to avoid surgery as long as I can and don't have a green thumb. Any and all advice would be appreciated.

Brilliant thread and the links provide clear and concise information for the beginner grower. Some of the threads offering information on how to start growing are too word heavy. I'll definitely be reading this as a reference when planning my own grow!
