Boom! First one subbed! You know I'm in :) Nice equipment. I know you'll grow some plants in here that will just be monsters! I can tell you've learned a lot between grow #1 and #2.

Thanks Asesino, I think I have, because I've always had the knowledge just no experience lol. Now that I am getting to put everything together I feel like I have the potential to do great things with growing. I have been thankful though that I haven't ran into many problems, so I can't say I've really seen that side of growing yet, however I do think its something every growing will run into at some point so I'm prepared for anything.

Oh wow nice seed order. The only seeds we have in common tho are the white widow fem. I will probably dip my fingers into the auto jar around March to have some outdoor plants up here in the mountains. Excited to see you grow those out though gonna be a nice grow!

Honestly tho I think the way people germinate is just all preference and how you learned to do it. Just my 2 cents haha

We use a glass for the initial soak. After they sink to the bottom we put them on a paper towel in a paper plate dome. Then we keep the paper towel moist but not wet so the taproot grows for water.
Also we don't use plain water. We use water with aloe powder and h2o2 to germinate. The seeds seem to like that better than plain water.

Is h2O2 just oxygenated water? And is aloe powder something you can get just at your local Walmart or something?

We got the aloe from a mazon. H2o2 is hydrogen peroxide. In a 16.9oz water bottle I use a cap full of peroxide and a teaspoon or so of aloe powder.

Alright I'm just gonna screenshot this so I don't forget and next seeds that I start, I'll try that method. Any tips for cloning? I just took two and used clonex and root riot cubes. I spray them 3 times a day or so with water and keep the dome and tray moist.

I didn't have much say in which strains we ordered because he's been trying to find these in the dispos for a while but I don't have any qualms with his selections lol. Are you going to keep the autos indoors during the spring? You know how tricky CO weather can be. I think we had a snow storm in the metro area mid may this year lol

What's the recipe and "science" for this solution, Canna? Thanks in advance :green_heart:

We got the aloe from a mazon. H2o2 is hydrogen peroxide. In a 16.9oz water bottle I use a cap full of peroxide and a teaspoon or so of aloe powder.
This is the recipe we use, and I believe the aloe and h2o2 feed the roots and stimulate growth.

When we clone, we take a cutting at a 45°, cut the tips off of the leaves, lightly scrape the bottom 1/4" of the stalk (that a where the roots come from) to make it easier for the roots to pop.

Then we take cloninex and a pipette and put some in the hole if the rapid rooters. Then put a little clonex on the part of the bottom you scraped off. Then put the plant in the rooter and spray it with a foliar spray, or water. In about 7-10 days, you should see roots coming out of the rooter. We also spray 2x daily either a foliar spray, or water.
