Hi again all .. ( told you id be back hehe !! )

Could you wonderful growers please kinda point me in the right direction i.e. : Your top ten must kinda do ..... should really have ..... if possible not necessary kinda thing, i have Fem Skunk. I understand the basics having had a little time to read the posts on here but unsure on Order of Play so to speak . Also i wonder if someone could tell me what " topping " and " flushing " is as those two words keep popping up and i aint sure what they mean and any importance, if they are important ?? .... Peace Out All ....

topping is where the growing tip of the plant is removed. this has the effect of redistributing hormones to the other side branching growing tips making the plants shorter and bushier. flushing is the process of giving just clean water for the last week or so in the plants life to help them use up any stores of nutrient that could lead to harshness in the finished product. as to an order of play i would suggest you wait now till the middle of september to start so you dont have to deal with the heat and you can be ready for the festive period at the end of the year.

topping is usually done to control height and is done with a pair of clean sharp scissors. all you do is cut the top off the plant just above the the node you want to go down to. if you ask uncle google im sure he will show you pictures and videos that can explain better than i can.

Thanks Cowardly ...... appreciate the info .

All in place now equipment wise .... setting up as we speak to start germination . I read somewhere spring water in a glass is a good way to get the seeds going ..... is that right or are there better ways ??

i would do a lights on test first to see what your temps are like before germinating anything. if you look on here it will give you the wet paper towel method that works flawlessly.

when the lights are on you want somewhere between 75f and 85f. they can handle higher temps if they have access to enough water but i would try and keep the temps down when they are small so you dont run in to problems.

that will help you with the pictures.
the yellowing is a sign that they are starving hungry as you've not fed them. if you are going to repot them now would be a good time to do it. the fresh soil will help as it will have fresh nutrients in it but they will need to start being fed very soon. read the directions on the bottle and start with a quarter of the dose recommended and build the dosage up from there over a period of time.
