Seedling - Water. Under Fluoros

A simple way to tell when to water a small amount of soil is to fill up another cup with dry soil and test each for weight. Its not abnormal to wait a week between the first watering in a water-holding medium such as peat. Water just before it dries out anyway.


If you want a free tip then use immersion feeding for the first few times at least. put the cup in a bucket of ph neutral water slowly until the top is moist then pull it out and watch it suck air into the medium as it quickly loses the water [makes it more certin to have an aerated and evenly saturated medium]. B)


If your cups arent drying out within a week then introduce some heat to them to help dry the medium out and boost root growth [25C is great].
