I put the seeds on the plates yesterday. so now is just wait for the magic to happen. I hasnt deside yet how to do the grow.. Using lst to get many budsites or using a net. The tent looks very big in my eyes. Maybe it would have been enough with an 120x120x200.. If there light is to little i will get another light next month. But i will wait and see how it turns out. if anyone have any comments. Let me hear what u think...

Hi 1grower! Your set up is looking nice! So neat and organized, love it. Congrats on all those seeds popping for you too! You are going to have so much fun with this.
Can you rotate your pictures on your phone/camera or computer with your photo program before you upload? I don't think there is a way to do that once they are uploaded here.
I will be following along too. Have a great day :thumb:

HI 1grower! In the first pic of seeds, I planted mine with taproots about that long and they did great. The second pic, maybe wait a bit yet.
People have different ideas on how long to let those go. Just telling you my experience. :)
And I agree, +reps for getting them all to pop!

You will find different answers on what to call day one too. LOL
I called mine day one when the sprouts came above the soil. We'll see what others' opinions are on that one.
You have a wonderful Christmas too!:xmas:

Okey canna... I think i go with your opinion. Seems correct. :)

Today i put the seeds into the soil. I took away one pot so it would be more space in one corner to put a fan for air-circulation and to just have little more area later on when i need to fix and trix. I put the 9 TD and 7 AM. In one pot there is two AM so the one who come up first is the winner and the other ones journey ends there. The soil was still moisted so i just add a little bit of water with a bit of rooth stimulator (0.25ml/L) . Now is just wait and see when they will pop up from the soil for their first touch of freedom. I will set the ballast on 300w and hang it as far away as possible then slowly lower it down and bring the wattage upp to 660. I'll put some pics when they have coming trough the soil. Merry christmas

Hey... Today everyone of the seedlings have pop'ed up from the soil. Hurray! BUT i have noticed that the soil have sank down so there is about 1-1.5 liters of soil missing in every one of the pots. (Rookie mistake ) What i understand i could refill this after when the plants getting bigger. I think thats a better idea then just lift the plants up and put new soil under it then put it back on top? If think i go with option number 1... But if i thinking totally wrong. Please correct me ASP....

Good luck with your grow, seems like you are doing everything right so far - glad they have broken the top of the soil!

The same thing happened to me with the soil, filled to the top then when I watered it sank down and compacted.

I think it should be fine to add in the extra soil in a few weeks once the plant has a good grip on life :)

nice grow - I have subbed! Check out mine if you get a minute :)
