(this info was taken from MSA)

Sooo the start has happened I popped these seeds into a glass of store bought still water on Sunday the 1st of December and after 18 hours the little buggers had all dropped to the bottom!! As a newbie this gets me very excited (feels like step one is completed)

They were then placed in between two moist cotton pads and placed inbetween two plates on top of my ps4 for a little bit of warmth while I gunned some okes on call of duty they were left there until today which we will jump to in a bit....

Tuesday came and I decided to mix a bit of a soil for germ as my hometown doesn't really have much of a variety when it comes to these kinds of things. Really just your potting soils which burnt the heck into my last seeds for some reason or other

Soils contains a mix of a light potting soil I managed to nab from a friend of mine that does a lot of propagation for a seedling shop in town.... Seems to be ok as this little guy below is one of the two from my last plant that actually survived and they were the only to in his soil.

The soil also contains perlite, peat, root starter mix bought from the store (not sure about this one) and some vermiculite.

So really hoping I havnt cocked up my soil.... Anyway let's see what happens as today the 4th of December all the seeds where showing decent taproot so they have been gently set with some mychrozae in a solo cup filled with soil and drainage holes drilled and a cut off plastic coke bottled put over each one as a make shift humidity dome.

Photo is a bit dark but that's one of the girls starting to show some life!

Soooo here's to holding thumbs and hopefully getting the best out of this grow.

Tent was supposed to arrived today but was delayed so the girls don't really have a home yet

Please any advice or info would be greatly appreciated as I'm a complate noob to all of this..

Let's all show some love ❤

I’ll sit in. What’s your grow set up?
What I've ordered is a Mars hydro 2,4m x 2,4m tent with 3 Mars hydro reflector 48s for now while the girls are still small. Current grow room which is temporary is set up with a 1500w (Def not true) Led with humidifier and extractor system which will all be moved to the tent tomorrow after install...

Not sure if this answers your question at all?

Feels bigger inside than I could have ever imagined! Now it's just to hope that the growing goes well...

Update on the girls will be coming in a bit.... Very excited to go check how they have come along on the first 24 hours of being in soil.

Here's to a future of hopefully plenty successful grows!

So roughly 36 hours after being in soil all the little girls are popping their heads up and sending their best festive season greetings....

Slight problem I've encountered though is that one of the seedlings seems a bit shy and refuses to lose her protective gear (even with a slight tug) and the other seems to be held down with some sort of membrane and hasn't properly opened up yet....

II'm not sure if this is something I must interfere with or if I should just let nature take its toll and give them some time...? Any feedback on this little problem would be greatly appreciated
