How do my seedlings look?

    Hey all,

    Just thought Id pick your brains on these seedlings. I germinated them all early august and they went into the medium around Aug 7, some Aug 12. Some are in straight coco, some are in Sun4/coco mix for experimental purposes.

    I had issues with stretching on some of them, as you can see. The light was only a couple inches away so im not sure what the cause was.

    I just started a weak nute feed a couple weeks ago, 1/8tsp of GH gro/mic/bloom per 2L water.

    I use lemon juice to get the PH around 6.0

    How do you think they are looking? We are 4.5 weeks in. There is 2 Green crack fems (theyre in solos) and the other 5 are some hawaiian seeds i acquired.

    Should i bump up the nute feed a bit now? they look a bit pale. Ive got them about 2" under a 4bulb t5 fluoro.

    When do you guys transplant from small containers? (Ex. Solo cups)
    Also, do you think my T5 2' 4bulb is sufficient for veggin?

    they look good man, ill be honest here when i first started here i measured my water ph like crazy and i'd add vinegar/lemon juice to bring it down a bit.

    big mistake on my end!!!! i just add dolomite lime to my soil mix and now i just water straight from tap or mix my nutes in a bucket, never check my ph now.

    i wasted my first year fighting with ph. dolomite lime makes it simple.

    as for transplanting i usually wait till the canopy fills the cup (your one looks just about ready)

    and yeah that light is fine if you keep em short, and if they are pale green almost yellow they need more nutes

    Cool man, thanks.

    I'll look into the dolomite lime! Checking ph is a step i wouldn't mind getting rid of.

    I actually rarely checked it when I did a couple coco grows last year but this time around im trying to put in more effort and dial in the plants.

    I bumped up the Nute feed tonight on the biggest one. Will transplant it soon, I'm thinking into 1gal then eventually 5gal.

    I usually tap the cup then pull the plant out upside down, checking to for solid root ball.

    transplant from solo not long after the leaves grow outside the 3" diameter of the top of the cup.

    For 4.5 weeks those sure do look small though. Are you not keeping the T5's right close to them?

    Can I assume your on an 18/6 light schedule? Or even better 24/0

    I've heard dolomite in coco is a no-no?

    They look healthy but a bit small....from my experience it looks like you may be watering a bit to often.....be sure to let them dry out good between waterings ....overwatering will also slow your growth to a crawl ...they like and need that bit of dry time....GL

    Don't let your coco dry out, asking for salt build up

    You can let it dry out almost fully in early seedling and veg. That is how you expand to a huge rootball

    Yes I've had the T5 very close to them the whole time... Within 3". And yea 18/6.
    They've grown a fair bit since I last posted, I'll grab a pic shortly!
    I agree, they seem small...kinda why I made this post... Not sure what caused such a slow start.

    I'm new to growing but my most recent plant I just topped and can already see growth, but a few weeks ago (when it wasn't going through stress) it stopped growing for a week, at 3-4 nodes, I overwatered because when It finally dried out overnight one night it made up for the week lost, guess the roots were chasing the little bit of water left lol still learning, hope they grow big and stinky man GL

    Here's a shot from today

    May be small, but they're healthy as hell. They'll explode when they get a grip in some new pots!

    Thanks guys! I have been careful not to over water and have slowly been bumping up the nutes.
    I've just been feeding them an weak mix of GH gro/micro/bloom. Just 1tsp/gal of each
