Well, here we are.
First grow didn’t go well. (White Widow) Started strong, but ultimately I think I did the final damage last week in the post sprout stage while trying to move the coco pod up a bit to keep it from staying soaked. By doing that, I managed to stress the root stem and ended up separating the stem root from the seed sprout. When I tipped the Grobo plate upside down while removing, the plant just fell out. It looked like it was trying to reestablish a new root, but alas, she’s done.
New seed of Cherry Pie soaking as we speak.
Plant new seed a touch deeper. Going to shoot for 1/2”.
1a). Germinate using the paper towel method
2). Start coco pod up higher on the tray, about 3/8” above top to help reduce the constant soaking it was getting before.
- It’s cool in my house, and keeping the temps/RH proper-like requires some effort in the winter. Moved the whole unit to the main floor to help stave off the wild temp swings between lights on/lights out.
4). Small aquarium heater in the reservoir. Again, for winter time grow. Excessive Heat will likely be an issue in the summer…I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
All in all, the support here on the forums has been amazing. You folks rock!
OK…time to crack a few homebrews and wait for the new seed to pop!
