Anywhere from 58 to 70 days depends on a lot of things. Strain, grow environment etc.
Your light is too close and you are watering too often. Research both subjects...Hi,
7 Bubba Kush seeds from CKS. All popped. Planted in soil, indoors under a ViparSpectra 300 watt LED. They popped up fast once under light, but now two of the seedlings have yellow leaves, and they're all growing slow. Please let me know how I can help them improve....
It's been one week under the LED light - which is about 12 inches above plants.
No nutes. I water them morning and night with collected rain water as they look quite dry.
Temp 68 degrees.
5 planted in jiffy peat pots. 2 with yellow leaves live in small clay pots.
All plants are about half inch tall.
Window in room is cracked during the day for air.
24 hour LED light cycle.
All thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Hey ya'llpost ahead Kelsey, will try to answer
Oh my goodness thank you so much. I'll def do that! I really hope that my light is strong enough. I did totally buy it off eBay. It's kinda crazy because I haven't smoked weed in probably two years or so.... it's crazy hard to find around here and you might get some dirt weed for around $20 a gram. I'll lower my lights this morning and try to post you some better pictures! I got my Northern Light strain from nirvana (after a nerve wrecking month) and you won't believe it but I got my Medicine Man off...wait for it.... freakin Etsy [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Thank you Nick your the [emoji378].comThis should go without saying, but first order of business is to make sure your grow's secure. Correct me if I'm wrong but Texas is one of the least lenient states when it comes to marijuana. So, secure your grow; make sure it's discreet (don't tell a soul), and, this is important as well, enjoy the experience. Most people who try growing find the process tedious and lack the patience to continue on.
On to the grow shindig
Can you tell us more about the seed's genetics? If bag seed, what kind of flowers did the seeds come from?
A foot seems pretty near for such a strong LED grow light, and for such small seedlings no less. I would recommend getting a different setup for seedlings, something small like a 100w> CFL setup in a bucket like my seed nursery.
How often do you water if at all? From my experience, and I live in the tropics so I reckon drying ain't as quick as the climate there in Texas, I usually water once or twice a week for seedlings, or up until I feel the medium is drying up---but not bone dry. Watering can be a beginner's deathknell in growing. Some growers and most unstudied growers would translate love for a plant as watering---not saying anything's wrong with that, but the cannabis plant should be approached differently than other plants. Cannabis seedling's roots need oxygen, and having the medium too wet deprives the roots of an abundant source of oxygen.
Plant #2, the one you're holding. Is that its stem right behind your finger there in the photo? If that's the seedling's stem then it shows stretching, a seedling's way of saying it isn't getting the proper light intensity it wants. Place all plants under a light's intense gaze, and not around it.
The seedlings do look small if they germinated July 3. Most vigorous vegetative plants root and establish just a week (if in final pot), matures enough for flowering a week after its first month.
That is all for now, and I hope this helps! Do a grow journal instead and post the link here, I'd be more than happy to subscribe and, if need be, guide the grow along the way.
