From 9 seedlings to 6.
Unfortunately the strain I was most excited about has died due to my own mistake. The Alien Rock Candy.

They needed an environment with higher humidity than the others and couldn't handle it (I'm guessing). They seemed to just collapse.

That or the soil was too hot.

For my first grow indoors I can't be too sad though. I've popped a tangerine dream seed and it has already caught up with the others.

Still excited for what's to come.

Will add more photos tomorrow

Grow Questions

Seedlings yellowing and curled
2 out of 9 plants are looking weird.
1 has yellow appearing and the other seems to be curled.
My pH tester has stopped working so ive been using drinking water until I get a new meter. Do you think its a pH problem? Just seems strange that it's only 2 out of 9

Leaves. Color - Yellow

Not all seeds are meant to be, you will never get 100% perfect germination.
The plant in picture 2 looks ok, it will grow soon enough.
It always pays to plant some spare seeds, more than you intend growing, for situations just like this.
That way you can pick only the healthiest specimens to grow.
I usually plant, if I have them, 2-6 seeds for each strain I want to grow and then pick only the best example to continue with.
While this may seem wasteful, I do not want to waste 3-6 months growing sub standard seedlings.
This way you keep the seed distributors in business and are always only planting fresh seeds with the best chance of germination.
I learnt a long time ago that pinning all your hopes on a single seeds can lead to disappointment.
Obviously if you only have one seed there is little choice, but I prefer to have a minimum of 2 seeds for each strain I want to grow, well before starting the next crop cycle. It is the "6 Ps" principle - Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
Hope this helps, Organoman.

Great strain you have chosen, and so far it looks great! :ok_hand: While I have your attention, @bySunnyD on Instagram is giving away seeds soon, as a thank you to the followers. Check us out, some of our Autos have a full 49 day period! :alien::seedling::alien::tulip:
