:point_right:Been 10 days since the first entry. Today is Day 11 and the seed has barely emerged from the media and is almost in suspended animation. I used a magnifier to get a closeup look and thought the seed shell could be hindering it. Using tweezers I was able to remove the seed shell halves easily, so that wasn't it. The cotyledon seemed to be wrapped tightly by the seed coat (thin membrane that surrounds the seed in the shell. I had left the plastic cup over the seedling and the surface stayed moist, I was afraid mildew could start growing there so on day I I started uncovering it for a few hours during the day and over night and kept it moist with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and the seedling solution. I inspected the seed coat around the cotyledon with a magnifier and used tweezers to try and dislodge the seed coat membrane on Day 8. I was able to move the membrane from the underside, but didn't push my luck because I would have had to apply a little more force and that could have uprooted the fragile baby. Today is day 9 and the cotyledon hasnt budged to open up, but it has turned green and the stem looks healthy, I will continue letting the seedling do the majority of the work to free itself from the seed coat, and inspect it closely. I hope it breaks free soon, otherwise this grow is doomed. I have had seed coats hinder cotyledons from opening before, but this one is the most stuck yet.

:point_right: I Started saturating the media with the week 1 schedule for seedling nutrients on the General Hydroponics drain to waste feed chart. I saturate the media to keep it in the proper pH range and to keep it moist and fresh. I reduced the pH to 6.3 to start dropping the medias pH from totally buffered range of 7pH that I prepped the media with, to eventually 5.8 target when/if the seedling becomes a youngster.

Don't put too much nutrients
Some are put too early
Why?
Bloom not necessary because not flowering just growth and root

@Bud_Good, I really appreciate your words, my friend ;) If you want, we can send you some seeds to make a diary. Send me a PM if you like that idea.

Sweet smokes!

@Sweet_Seeds, Sorry, didnt intend to be a jerk. Its kewl, I appreciate your opinion. It re-assures me I know what I'm doing. BTW, COCO has some potassium in it and minute quantities of magnesium and calcium and a high level of salt all of which get rinsed out before planting. If there is any left in the coco it is minuscule and unavailable to the plant anyway. Before planting I rinse the coco to buffer it. This particular grow I rinsed the coco not only before putting in the pot, then for two weeks every day with ph'd pure water and monitored the run-off. This was the last seed (of 4) that I got from Herbie's, the first three all sprouted a tiny tap root, and all of them stopped after that and didnt completely germinate. I figured the seeds I got were probably a little older so on the 4rth one (the one growing now) I used an H2O2 solution. The tap root got to 1/2" and was placed in the media. It emerged from the media but couldn't shed its seed coat. I tried to let it free itself on its own but after 4 days it wasn't so I assisted it. This is why the plant is tiny. The way the plant is going now I am confident it will thrive. the days on the calendar are not an indicator of the plants age. The plant was struggling. It wasn't struggling because I was adding nutrients. And once again I didnt give it a strong dose of nutrients. I used .04EC is and the recipe is FOR seedlings doing this method. and I alternated with almost pure water...literately 98% pure medical grade H2O. My wife has told my my diaries are too long for people to read all of the details, so this diary I tried to keep it a little more basic because its a waste of time putting every little detail on here for 3 or four people to glance at every week. I am confident this plant will be like the rest of my plants and be way above and beyond when compared to the average plant that gets rewarded in the sham contests on this site. I am glad Sweet Seeds is offering more contests and hope to see more integrity in the results. This is why I chose a sweet seeds strain to grow. I cant wait to try it out! A very intriguing mix of strains for this one! I appreciate you challenging the details of my grow here. I enjoy the discourse! :sunglasses:

@Bud_Good, Well, it was my point of view, and I was trying to help you. Sorry about that. The green colour in the substrate is due to high humidity. (And that's very bad for a seed). COCO has food for the first 10 days and I see you have used fertilizers at the beginning. Your plant is really tiny for day 26 so it will be a small plant possibly because it starts to flowering soon. But don't worry about it, It is only my opinion.
All the best!
