Very pleased to be able to come to the forum to learn, at present my plant germination rate and survival rate is not ideal, has died 11 seeds. Need some guidance, how to publish the forum picture? I think this will help my question!

Thank you Twox,

I have three germinated seeds were bitten by the ants bitter, the rest of the eight seeds did not normal germination, may be my lack of experience, only use tap water for 48 hours. There are three seedlings living in the outside, do not know how to take care of it

At present, I have a seedling in the room, has 15 days, but the growth is slow, the use of 30-10-10 organic fertilizer, 90W LED lights, but I do not know how to publish pictures to the forum, can tell me The

There should be a gallery tab at the top of the page.. There is a upload photo category that you can use to upload photos.

I would definetly try to keep the little ones inside until they get a little bigger, especially if there getting eaten by ants. The 48 hour comment makes me think your soaking your seeds.... Thats way to long. I don't even soak anymore. I use a wet paper towel folded over the seeds in a Ziploc sandwich bag.. Tap roots in 24 hours

I don't soak them either. A wet paper towel in a small take out box with the lid loosely on in a dark closet. Have a look after 2 days and if they haven't germinated give them another day. I'm going to soak mine overnight for the next grow and then do the paper towel routine for the fun of it.

Thank you for your comments, I will be used as a reference

What's with the plastic on the outdoor plants? You will drown them that way! The indoor one looks excellent remember to transplant to a larger pot before she becomes rootbound and a little advice on nutes... though the 30-10-10 will technically work, but that's a whole lot of nutrients.... you may burn them and when it's time for flower you have to drop the Nitrogen wayyy down (the first number in your N-P-K values) good luck I hope your plants thrive!

Thank you, this is my indoor growth of the plant, I cut the middle of the flower, it is said that this can increase production

There's a tiny bit more to it than that but yes, topping will produce two growth tips in place of the one you removed. When done tastefully it can and will, along with other forms of training, greatly increase your yield. Research LST plant training techniques. IMO based on seeing your outdoor plants, keep it simple! Grow one just to grow one and the buds you get from that are just a bonus to the knowledge you can gain through just one grow cycle. Knowledge is your friend and I can't give it all to you, you must seek it out and experiment because what works for some may not work for you. Your off to a good start, your plants are alive. Get those outdoor plants into the ground properly! If you leave them sitting in a clump of dirt in plastic the water will sit there and rot your roots and deprive them of oxygen, drowning the plant. Get the basics down and learns what you achieve and how with different training methods. Low Stress Training, topping, supercropping, just a few keywords to look up after you research the basics
(Feeding, lighting, watering, identifying deficiencies, etc)

How do you germinate your seeds? What method? I simply germinate my seeds in specialist seed and cutting compost and I have pretty close to a 100% success rate. Other people use the paper towel method. Seeds are natural living things and some simply don't ever germinate but to lose 11 seeds is quite a high ratio and there's clearly something wrong. I always opt to germinate how nature intended, directly in the dirt. It works superbly well with moist lightweight seed & cutting compost.

For DWC would you recommend doing that and washing off the roots and then planting directly into the hydroton? I've heard about others doing that but have never myself.
