Here we are on my 4th grow already. I've learned so much since the beginning of the year, but feel like I'm still very much a noob.
Popped a Strawberry Nuggets seed on the 1st of the month. I let her soak in water for 36 hours, until tap root shows, and then into a rockwool cube that has been pre-soaked in ph'd water. The roots shoot out the bottom of the rockwool fairly quick, usually within a couple days, so i like to place a handfull of coco below the cube, to give the roots something to grow into. Otherwise they expose themselves to the light and sit against plastic, both of which can't be good for young roots. After 36 hours in the rockwool, sitting in a warm spot, the plant has emerged. The first day she stands up out of the rockwool is when I start counting Day 1. I prepared another coco hempy for her, conditioned it with cal mag, and put her in by Day 2.
The first week in the bucket is usually slow growth and establishing roots. So not much changes above ground, but below she's growing roots like crazy. I give her a cup of water every other day, and by end of week 1 she should be reaching the hempy reservoir.
I was a little concerned that her cotyledons were curled under the whole time, and the first set of leaves looked wonky, but I've learned from my 1st grow that the first set can often look a little weird, and the second set looks just fine.
