Seedsman Grow comp 2018 Chem-Bubbly

Hi folks ok just starting the 3 Chem-Bubblys today as i want to get the autos running and due to health i want to at least make sure i grow some plants ,i am in and out of hospital for the next few months oh joy so it might be a bit between posts ok but bare with me .

 

Ok to the plants ,they are going in a mix of seed & cutting compost and vermiculite as a starter ,i think the pictures give you the idea of how thye will be started but i am just popping them in the soil with a little jelly pot over to keep the moisture in , they will be under 125w cfl for the first week may be 2 again depending on hospital and me .

Ok all good luck in your growing and most of all huge thanks to Seedsman for the comp and the free seeds and other goodies

Stay safe

Well just a little update , i planted them after a soak in GA3 and then put under lights with little tops on to keep them moist but only 1 germinated and she is not looking that great either ,this is the first time i have ever used GA3 and well not sure i will try it again ,i pre saoked the seed then popped them straight in to potting compost and this is the result and like i have said the one i got up does not look great very weak and weedy ,i will put more on if it lives if not i will be throwing 3 others in the grow 

stay safe grow well

Ok, now seeing the first photos, maybe the substrate seemed very dry at first, as i said in pm that's why I always prefer to use wet napkins, popping in substrate can give problems depending on the type substrate, when doing a soft watering the first time, water it could "slip" on the substrate, thus not being sufficiently wet... wishing best ressults!!

yah, yeah, no worrys, only saying because those threads reaching lot people and i preffer to offer the best info about germination issues.. I personally have tried this with 100 seeds ... also because of my work I have seen germinations from many growers, and the success rate is much higher when we contrast both methods, so I always take advantage of these situations to emphasize this for possible viewers..

Well folks i guess i will have to start 3 more seeds so will be doing another grow thread ,as i stated 2 of the 3 never grew and the 1 that came up was so weak , i will not be pre soaking in GA3 again and will be going back to damp tissue to germ .

The 1 that did germ has finally given up the ghost but it did struggle to get going and even to pot it's shell so i figure it was a runt 

Thank you anyway @J Trich for letting me try these i will sow 3 of the others you gave me
