I am on the 3 Day period and haven’t received the notification to top up my grobo.I checked to see where the water line was and it is just below the High fill line so I’m not too worried about topping it , but I did notice that the bottom of the coco pod had expanded quite significantly and looked almost like it’s falling apart cracked and what not in several areas I wasn’t sure if this is okay it’s my first time working with a coco pod. b I know I’m only on day 3 and there’s quite a journey ahead I didn’t know if this was aconcern. My coco pod is quite moist not soaked besides the bottom when I lift it it it had like two drops of water come down from it I wanted to make sure I didn’t have the Pod soaking I’m trying to keep it damp and prevent over watering
Sounds like your alright I got the same jitters my first time too lol… the cocopod is a little weak when it is wet so try not to keep opening the lid as that will constantly move it and possibly rip it… I did that and my grow still progressed… hell my current plant is from soil and a cocopod I cut in half and the plant is now sitting in the water cuz the cocopod ripped apart and if you check my last few pics you can see everything is fine !!
What are you growing ? Can’t wait to see why you have in store
@chris_barfield I am growing gorilla bomb @David_mendez mentioned that he too is growing the same strain and that it hit the lights twice and I need to train my plant was his advice its a sativa dominant hybrid .I’m a little nervous being my first time growing but this forum is an excellent resource with individuals like you and @Azuri and of course let’s not forget @Stephen. I’m sure I will do great I’m definitely going to post pictures obnoxiously at every step of the way to get an idea of what I should do when I should do everybody is so helpful so I know it will be great!
I think the notification pops up day 5 doesn’t it? I wouldn’t worry too much about it if shes still in the pod
I think so @Todd.grobo, the very end of day 5.
Hey @alucard, this thread may not pertain to your unique situation, but its’ got some useful info about the coco pod. Hope this helps! Coco Pod- - Miscellaneous - AllGrowers Forum | Hydroponics, Harvesting, Cannabis, and more
Our Notification came on Day 4…
@SilverGrobo the notification came up right as day 5 was starting for me the particular strain I have gorilla bomb has a longer grow cycle than other recipes maybe that why it pops up on a different day not sure🤷🏽♂️ but it’s all good
It looks like it was sent Nov. 30th at 10 pm. Followed by the ‘Your seed should be popping’ notification Dec. 1st at 10pm.
Did you get those notifications?
Yes I did! @Stephen
Nice, I was just going to ask this same thing. Hit day 3 today and was wondering the same about the notifications.
So im on day 3 going into four with no signs of life yet to be noticed. Using a growers choice gelato seed and the generic hybrid recipe i guess after reading all of these posts i shall continue to wait may have to germinate this seed first im guessing if i dont see something soon.
If after 5 days she hasnt popped, definitely feel ok to gently take a peak under the piece of pod cover you put in place and see if shes tangled up or sprouted. If not cover her back up, she may require longer.
I personally have had them pop on day 3 and everything up to day 10. After 10 days, I throw them out and start over.
HeyTodd! thanks for the advice from the pro! I wondered if messing with it to take a peek would hurt thanks for clarifying that for me for sure!
I pulled the plug on the coco pod just couldn’t take it and sure enough I just need to develop some patience I seen real quick a root type piece that definitely didn’t look like what I dropped in the hole lol at any rate I stuff that plug right back in and closed her back up. Thanks for all the advice again this forum is great!
Did you take a picture as mine grew something, but after 5 days nothing came thru the top. It turned out mine twisted in there and was not growing up. I put in another seed I started in wet paper towels first and had growth that could be seen in 3 days.
No i was so scared to be in there i just got in and out , however it looks as if there was a little piece of white just barely breaking out or just have broke out seems as if it is still deciding on a direction to take maybe from the looks i can only hope it goes up and then roots straight down right? I will be sure to be on the watch
Day 5 looks like im moving right along so far no roots showing in the bottom of the coco pod yet however did catch this beauty trying to shine!
