Hello all,

I'm getting ready to harvest my soil grows shortly and my next venture is an auto watering coco system. How should I go about starting seedlings if I'm going to be transplanting into coco?

Thanks

cool, how long do you leave them in there before putting into your final coco pot?
i dont' do coco anymore but for dwc, i like the seedling to get a decent set of leaves and roots that stick out of the rapid rooters. then into the hydroton.

I soak the seeds for 24 to 36 hours, put in paper towels till tap root forms, add to prepared and charged and pH'es coco in Solo cups and when they emerge water only as needed. They don't need much the first few days just keep them damp, at least every other day water deep. You want to establish the root system. I love Great White.
Rocky's method is foolproof, all base of germ rate.

Awesome, I'll probably end up doing that. How many days do you let them stay in the solo cups generally? That'll be the deciding factor of when I'll start them
