If you put them instantly in your space box, it may have been that they simply dried out. I know you're not supposed to water it at first, but when I switched to LED, i give a teaspoon of water everyday directly around where I put my seed. and when it climbs above the ground, I try to keep the moist ring half an inch around the seedling. My LED's are quite hot, and combined with the fan they dry the top of the soil in no time. And looking at the plants in your space box, I noticed that your spacebox must be quite hot as well. Might be the cause of the failure.Subbed.
Want a race??
I am on day 5 at the moment of what i hope will be a quick grow. I am taking timing from when i put the seed in towel to germinate. Hopefully lots a small plants i will flip to 12/12 asap. Have put 29 fem seeds in a paper towel and so far have 20 popped and into jiffy pots. Nothing above ground yet.
Am hoping for better than my last planting. Got 22 popped in that one, but only wound up with 7 plants as the rest just never made it above ground. Not sure why but if i have a repeat of that will have to give serious though to technique.
Anyhow, was going to use spacebox with the LED but may use tent and 600W light. Bit depends on how many plants i get to use.
Anyhow, good luck with the new grow.
High Amy I shall do it when I'm back home after work if you don't mind waiting a bitHey K - could you share some info on your installation of the extraction fan please? I’m thinking I’ll use 1 or 2 computer fans I have still in packets to pull air out of my little diy closet that I’m starting to prepare for my winter grow. I like how neat n tidy yours looks
And - just tying yourself to a nice relaxed once a week update doesn’t mean you can’t hang out in here and chat in the meantime-between time
