Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself. I have just planted 6 germinated seeds a few days ago using fox farm frog soil and perlite. (Late in the season, I know) They've just sprouted and I got a twin seedling I think .I'll post some pictures later. I'm growing them outdoor in south east NC. Any tips for this stage for a new grower?

Week 1: Yesterday I tried to pull out the twin with a spoon and accidently dropped the baby girl. I'm left with 7. The first two are 'Ak47'. The last two pics are unknown. I just stabbed more holes for drainage in these pots as an attempt to not over water them.

Looks good! Just make sure it's light before you water again. And completely saturate! looks like you got it tho

Hey 2bad!

Thanks for the advise, im constantly torn between wanting to water them because they look dry on top and not too moist about an inch down and not wanting to over water. Is there a better way to know when to water in this stage?

Literally lifting the pots up after watering and remembering how it feels that's how most people do it. I do think you have the hang of it though.

Get yourself some fabric pots. Once your seedlings have some size to them and are ready, transplant them. Yes, autos don't like being transplanted. Hence the reason I prefer photoperiod. These girls were all started inside (mid MI area) in March and were into solo cups and in the greenhouse first week in April. Put in fabric pots beginning May and have been out in the open 24/7 since. You're using good media and perlite. Fabric pots lessen the opportunity to overwater just as long as you don't go overboard. You're off to a good (albeit a bit later than perhaps ideal) start. Good luck!

Thanks man, I will be getting fabric oits very soon. Quick question, do you worry about neighbors smelling your plants at all at that stage?

Smell is always a concern. Right now, the odor is quite low and unobtrusive IMO. We've all got fenced yards, and our prevailing winds out of the west usually keep the odor down. Truthfully, we've got plenty of wildlife around, and skunks get hit by cars around here with regularity, so it's not been a problem thus far for me.
