Hello fellow farmers, March is upon us and spring is knocking! That means it's time to prepare for this year's outdoor grow. 🌞
The makeshift nursery is set up in my grow area. Fluorescent shop light hung under my vanity MacGyver style. Tray with tall dome. Environment is pretty well controlled barring crazy weather outside, like sub zero temps. This is the same room my Auto is growing in, she's in the closet.

Will be using 4.5 inch nursery pots to start since I'm short on space currently, and because10 fit perfectly in a tray. Last year I started right in the one gallons and it worked well for me, so I'll need to remember how to water tiny pots, maybe I'll weigh them. I will be using the dirt my male was in for his month of life before he got ended, which was FFOF
that was fed once, I think, I'll have to check my other diary to see if I fed before or after he dropped balls. Made a little divet with mostly plain peat for the seeds to start in, just in case the soil is a little hot. Pots currently absorbing water in the tray since the soil was bone dry.
The seeds all got dropped to soak this morning, in a 1 to 1.5 mixture of hydrogen peroxide
and distilled water. I may change the water for plain water either tonight or tomorrow morning after the peroxide does its thing.
The following is a description of the strains I *HOPE* to grow and how the seeds looked, not that that says much, but sometimes it does lol. All are feminized as far as I know, I don't have space to start and kill regs.
