First grow transplant from soil

We live in the deep south us and are having issues getting any seeds from suppliers. We have been trying to get old seeds saved to pop for over a month. We have been soaking them and finally got three seeds that we’re looking good, we put one in the grobo and two in solo cups. Today I went to check and we got a sprout.


Hopefully the other two will pop up also. How much should we water the one in the solo cup and if the other ones dont pop, when should we tranplant this one in the coco pod for the grobo?

Thank you for any advice.

I would have put the seed directly into the hole made for it in the coco pod so its roots can grow down. @chris_barfield is the only one I know who transplanted from dirt to grobo. Check out his posts

U should transplant ASAP. Ur tap root isn’t too far along. Depending on ur tap root length ull want to poke a hole deep enough into the coco pod. I haven’t done this yet so Chris would be the man to really answer this. As for solo cup grow I would cut holes in bottom and sides to allow air flow. Once roots start pooping out the bottom u can transplant to larger pot

Why are you having trouble finding seeds? Every seedbank I’ve seen or dealt with ships to any state.

A bit of clarification.
Three seeds soaked in water all looked good and were popping. We put the best looking one in the grobo and the other two in solo cups, only one has sprouted so far. The first sprout was at 6 days and I still hope to see the other two sprout also.

As far as seeds every place I look requires bitcoin or a cash app that works out of the country (can’t get them to work). We have the bitcoin finally but still can t spend it yet.

Any suggestions on seed banks would be greatly appreciated especially If they take regular currency.

Seeds can take upwards of 10 days to pop. I pulled a bent one out at 11 or 12 and straightened up np

I got mine with debit card from truenorth

I used Pacific Seed Bank from Sacramento recently. They take credit cards for some items, but they take up to 20 days to ensure it’s going to clear. You can also send a cashier’s check/money order or have your bank wire money directly. If you go money order route you even get 3 (random) free seeds.

So sorry ovie, not looking great but, you don’t have to give up, many have come back from worse. Have you put in a ticket to see if @Stephen could offer some help? For now I would take those two yellow leaves off and try not to have any dampness in your grobo, your pod seems too wet but it could be the pics. Its possible dampening off but your middle leaves still have life!
