heres some of mine at 2 weeks in.

10" pots i think there a bit big for seedlings, i potted mine up to fast though.

normaly you'd start them in little pots and buil up, it allows the root to fill out and the plants grow bigger, i think?

anyway, thought id post that so you can tell where your up to, as this is my first grow too.

the big one in pic is 3.5 weeks old and the small ones are 8 days old... Germinated them in water for a night then transplanted them to 3 inch pots under a floresent light in hotpress and when they shook the shell left them a day and put them into the bigger pots...

sorry thought you said 2 weeks, hewres one after 4 weeks, so yeah they look a little small.

sorry but not sure what your prob is. could well be the ph, but the leaves dont look to have lock out?
have you got a fan blowing on them? how far away is your light? are you growing them in the right kind of soil?

i would have put more soil in the pots and i would try turn the van away abit so it is not directly pointing at the plants..and raise the pots off the floor a few inches..and sort the ph..

are u sure u are not giving them 2 much food the roots might be drowning causein slow growth..

i am no expert but worht a try..

Someone said to raise pots off the ground.. Can u tell me wat this does?? Only giving them 1/2 the amount of food than wats stated so I don't think so.. Will move fan and too late for soil but will no for next time...



Cheers!!!

i think its because the floor will always be colder and for better air circulation.. is there holes in the bottom of your pots?? try have the van so the plants are still slighty moving but not pointed directly on them..

how much water do u feed each plant? do u feed them every day?

I water them every second day and feed them every 4 days.. Feeding them bio buzz grow and that's all... Yeah holes in pots.. Will take better pics tomorrow.. They seem to look good otherwise..just they don't seem to be growing as fast as they should and the stems seem pretty weak!!

hey marty, hes using a 600w hps mate.

im not sure but arent flouresent lights supposed to get close to the plants like cfl?
when i had seedlings under a 600w hps the light was 25" away and got it down to 20" after a week.
so what im saying m8 maybe get the light closer as i think 20" away from a flouresent will waste alot of light.
again m8 im no expert im on my 1st grow myself but it might help.
goodluck with ur grow man%3ceed%20leaf

lol, yeah his second post says he got a 600hps.

was thinking about that cause you said they grew quicker when you did em under yours.

do you think that 2/3 weeks under the blue lights then hps for rest of veg, would be better than just the blue or just the hps?


Posted By: TheDeparted
Date Posted: 07 April 2011 at 00:55
not sure m8 as i havent tried that yet but i can say that the rate of growth under the hps was easy twice as good.
from i put them uner the cfl to finnish veg the growth has slowed  but not sure if thats more to do with me under feeding them.
if i had the option i would start under the cfl then finnish veg under a hps before switch.
ive done this with my fist batch and they look good but its down to ur set up i suppose and what suits u best.

gonna pick up a cfl tomorrow. already got the shade from last time.

cant afford a hps cause if i could id just get a tent light and fans for 210. gonna veg em under the cfl then get saving for the rest.
