Let them reach towards the sides of the cup before you transplant otherwise you have a higher risk of damage to the tap root..especially if youve never transplanted with the split solo cup method..If you decide to transplant earlier than that be very careful to not disturb the delicate roots because that will severely stunt if not kill a really small seedling.Seven days later all popped and have started to put on their first set of true leaves. One Mexican Airlines crashed and burned so we're down to 2 plants in the 2x4. Probably better for airflow in the long run. Temps were a little low this week so I feel like they are a bit behind. I mean, a lot of people talk about transplant at 7-8 days. Maybe they will take off with the better temps this week.

there is no lack of nutrients in that mix... just top dress every so often. Its gonna probably work out really well!Happy 4/20! Today I’m mixing soil and filling pots in preparation for transplanting sometime in the next week or two. I’ll fill the pots about half way and give em a single spray of water if the material is particularly dry then fill the rest of the way.
Soil mix: 4 parts FFOF
1 part Perlite
~.5 Parts Rice Hulls
32 oz Build a Flower per 5 gallon
1.5 tablespoon per 5 gallons of Down to Earth Biolive 5-4-2 to offset the perlite and rice hulls lack of nutrients.

Oh yeah. I think I’m good. The scoop of DtE just adds a little kick offsetting the perlite and rice hulls lack of contribution to the mix. The BaF looks and smells good. Thanks for all the help. I’m really looking forward to this grow.there is no lack of nutrients in that mix... just top dress every so often. Its gonna probably work out really well!
I used to use just ffof and top dress with build a flower...I did have to stay on top of the top dressing and do it often to avoid issues... so then I started just mixing some build a flower in and adding some aeration like you have here, and it got a lot easier... Watering with organic black strap molasses is a good idea as well.. maybe every other watering. I use it more frequently but you really dont need to. If you dont have some barley straw, consider getting some..I generally mulch 2-3 times and bury the first mulch in build a flower when it starts flattening and top dress and mulch again.. the straw breaks down in the soil and the micro life really likes it.Oh yeah.

I missed this earlier..I sprayed an ounce of water into the soil then tossed a handful of rice hulls on top and spread them.
