Germed an Auto Pounder with Cheese seed in 24 hrs via wet paper towel and zip lock bag. Dropped her in the soil and away we go!

Soil:

Fox Farm Happy Frog/Ocean Forrest 50/50 mix. FFOF was too hot for my seedlings the last couple of grows so will tone it down with some HF. Low PH was a major issue last grow due to bad soil, so have done some pH testing of the new soil. FFOF is 6.3 and FFHF is 7.0, so mixed together seems like a nice place to be.

Nutes:

Fox Farm Liquid & Soluble Trio, Cal/Mg juice, mollassis - Spent a few bucks to upgrade to Beastie Bloomz, Cha Ching & Open Sesame, hoping it'll pay off. Cal/Mg added to help with LED lighting deficiencies.

Container:

Airpot 5 gallon equivalent. Holds 3.6 gallons/13.8 liters of soil, enough for a potential monster plant.

Water: Bottled spring water & air pump - I'm switching to spring water from distilled due to a perceived lack of 'trace minerals' encountered in previous grows. Distilled water TDS is 0, Spring water is ~ 50ppm, and my tap water is 450ppm on a good day. The air pump is lesson #1 here @ AFN, so no big surprise.

Lighting:

The trusty LG-G04B96LED 300w Reflector LED. Actual draw 190 watts, 96 x 3w bulbs. Since the last MJ grow this unit has been growing my common veggie seeds with an almost 100% germ rate. I have only grown 24/0 and may switch to 20/4, but havent decided. You can check out my LED review for more info. https://www.autoflower.net/forums/f147/lg-g04b96led-300w-reflector-led-review-30783.html


I'm using a couple CFL's to get her going and help her stretch up and will eventually be removed.

THAT, my goat friend, looks like a recipe for success! :) So subbed.

I love my FFHF, but maybe root a round a little, been hearing of some gnat issues with them.

thanks dude, i've been reading that too a bit lately. I dumped it all into a tote and spent a few days mixing it by hand and removed a few sticks but luckily no bugs. I'ts really quite fluffy stuff.... felt kinda nice on my hands vs outdoor dirt.

Day 6-9 progression, haven't posted till now thinking she might fail but seems to be progressing ok. She popped some spots on the first set of leaves on day 5, am hoping it's light stress. Was giving her plain RO water in sparse amounts every day, then gave her 1/2 gallon of 7.0 spring water today with 6.6ish runoff. I removed the CFL's and the LED is 24" away in lower power veg setting. It was hot and dry in the closet for the first few days, but currently 78f 60rH. I had a clear plastic cup over her the first few days due to low rh. I might chuck in a soupçon of cal/mag in a few days.
