Hello to everyone and thanks to all in advance, this is my first post/first grow...i've been reading these boards for about 4 weeks now and found plenty of useful information, but my problem began yesterday or atleast i noticed it yesterday and i haven't been able to find the same problems on here or anywhere for that matter so here goes...
i was wondering about the 2 leaves on the very bottom of the plant that are yellow, is this a problem? (you know the 2 leaves that first grow when she protrudes from the soil) the rest of the leaves are green and seem to be in good health although the veins are a deep red color going almost half the way up the leaf
the plant is 10 days old from the time the germinated seed was placed in soil
Using 2 26w=100w(6500k) cfl on a y-adapter..hanging about 3 inches above the plant and it gets a 24/0 schedule
The plant is in a 8'' pot sitting in a box about 4feet high and 2ft depth/width lined in that reflective camping emergency blanket(resembles foil)
my water has a 6.5 ph going in ...havent dumped a ton of water in the pot to measure run off just incase over watering is my issue. I was watering 2 to 3 times a day(half a cup), i thought it was a bit much but the soil was getting dry and kind of hard every few hours, my last watering was last night but i've misted/sprayed the top of the soil twice today
Using 80% MG Organic Potting soil with 20% perlite mix
the seedling started in a 16oz dixie cup with the MG/Perlite mixture and just one 26w/6500k cfl then i transfered her to the 8'' pot about 4days ago when i noticed her roots poking out of the drainage holes on the bottom of the dixie cup.
i keep the temp around 78 but yesterday someone had bumped the therm' up to about 83 so i dropped it back down yesterday afternoon.
i have the MG Organic bone meal 6-9-0 shuld i need to use a little incase this is a defficiancy problem...all help appreciated
p.s. using the MG organic potting soil because i couldn't find the other mixtures you guys talk about at any of the stores in my area
