Trying hard, but.....

Recommended Posts

Hi - I'm a relatively new grower and am becoming convinced my thumb will never turn green!

 

Am growing in a BCNorthern Lights cabinet (hydro) here in Brooklyn. First time with Sannie seeds - Killing Fields feminized. Have had trouble in past with growing from seed (this is my 4th attempt) and have experienced numerous crisis moments! First time out I was able to get some clones and had no trouble at all, but since then it's been a struggle with seeds and have yet to get to the finish line with a crop I feel good about.

 

Right now, I'm two weeks in from germination and my 3 remaining seedlings are about 2" in height and looking good. This time I'm trying to take a conservative approach with water and nuts, hopefully not over-doing anything.

 

the big question that's nagging at me right now: Given Sannie's instruction for a very short veg (1-2 weeks), does veg period start at seedling stage? In past I've always gone too long in veg, but don't want to make mistake in other direction! I've read somewhere that seedlings should be given 2-4 weeks, so what's the rule for when veg starts with KF seeds?

 

I don't know anyone else who grows, so I rely totally on the boards for advice and help. I now wish I hadn't started with hydro but I'm trying my best and keeping fingers crossed! I guess this topic area isn't right place to be asking questions right off, so apologies in advance.

 

thanks!

Welcome Ikiru,

 

this board will give you many know-how from other people, youre damn right here.

 

Im growing Killing Fields from seed to weed too.

Ive learned that seedlings will take their time, theyve got a inner clock.

You can take them 3days after germ into 12/12, but they wont flower after few days like cuttings do.

 

Flowering begins when you can see spiracle not when flipped to 12/12.

 

My KFs flipped to 12/12 at Day 11 after germ. But the first spiracles i saw at Day 31.

 

My grow

 

Sannie flipped to 12/12 at Day 3 after germ. And theyre flowered at week 4 too.

 

Sannies grow

 

Thats what i mean "they got a inner clock"....but iam a newbie too, so take the comment as a assumption.

 

 

nuff respect

Like someone told me ...if your grow gets 10% better each time your on your way :P

I suspect thats been a problem, usually i do not use nutes for the first 3-4 weeks, Over watering, poor drainage

Not having the ph correct etc will doom any grow

I assume it does......However my KFs did not strech that much from seed, Now when i flower some clones

Ill check back, and thats just my experience but For my Kfs Im letting it veg 8 weeks and then flipping it

Oh.........I do soil man, Perhaps you could try that? But i suspect if you read enough and get good advice and be patient and keep at it you will get it.

 

Me im skared of hydro.

thanks for warm welcome and feedback! I've got the tank filled with a 10% nut solution and one plant has already shown root growth out of 3 inch deep container down towards the water. Only concern is how short plants are, even though leaf structure is filling out. My experience with other strains is more height at this point. Again, thanks - and i'll repost elsewhere in forum.
