I was about to say, damn i cover a lot more of the main stalk than that, (friend told me its just like their roots in a way, it doesn’t like being exposed, who knows ? Lmao) i put mine pretty close to where the beginning leaves would be, but leave enough space just in case some sinks when watering and i can add more. Some are in veg stage and have been for a couple weeks, wanted to keeep it that way for as long as possible and i have now others that are in atleast week 3 of flowering.. I’m wondering if I’m just not adding enough perlite to my mix. Which I is why i added the ME coco/perlite mix, figured if anything it will help it dry faster. some days i feel as if i need a skype tutor to watch do somethings done hahahah.I am simply using less soil but I am not vegging right now when I do I will use more. I am not going for big I am going for short and stout with heavy frost we will see what happens. Like I said just use less soil. If you look at my pot the soil line is very low only 4 inches of soil. I am in Happy Frog. Sorry about the blurple.
There’s someone on YouTube that does do one on ones for a price but damn. Other than this site, the tube, and maybe 3 other sites I’m going at this kinda blindfolded i guess u could say. Stupid i know but its always been my dream and the whole thing fascinates me.
