First week of my first grow! Each week I will have updates, comments about what I did and what I think I could have done differently, etc. I welcome any and all feedback, questions, comments or laughs at my expense! I have listed a bunch of the core components of the grow below.

Sprouted the seedlings using the paper towel method. Placed the seedlings in the RapidRooters (which had been soaked in PH balanced water and then squeezed to remove excess moisture) and turned on the light when I started to see the tops of the seedlings.

I initially placed the light about 36" from the seedlings and they looked like they were stretching so turned down the light further and placed it closer to the plants. In my excitement, I should have let them grow longer in the Rapid Rooters or better yet put them in Solo cups with some coco around it to allow additional growth before transplant. In any event, I soaked my Coco and Perlite mixture in a light nutrient solution 24 hours before transplant and moved the seedlings into their final home on day 5 (see final two pics).
