FireBall's first grow

Mini fans circulating air in the unit will help dry the pod out faster. If you can set them on a low setting you can aim them at the pod as long as they aren’t blowing your little seedling around like crazy. I will say that’s probably one of the highest pods I’ve seen to date.

Edit: Temps are fine. You’re possibly going to have to move it back down when you go to early veg as the water level will drop. Wet pod during germ is completely normal to keep the seed wet to crack and allow it to start growing.

I have mine in a closet in the office closet doors never close, my wife keeps it pretty cool in the house im guessing that is keeping the Grobo comfortable on its own so far…. I ordered a water thermometer and a camera so i can keep better look in on her also have some fans on the way.

I also have the camera and water thermometer now I’m trying to figure out how post pictures on this site.

Well i cut my losses today with this little guy at day 22! Roots hadn’t gained any inches in days and they appear to be turning brown despite water temp of only 73…today I started over with a pre germinated seed the tap root was 1.5 inches almost when i put it in the coco pod this time i will make sure to pull the pod up once roots get thru and I have ordered some hydroguard too ….not sure what else could be my issue really…a tad frustrating but im pushing on!

That’s a GREAT attitude to have! Roots look ok to me, but the plant itself doesn’t look happy at all. My only other thought would be to do a PH health check and possibly submit a support ticket.

I honestly think I had a case of damping off just knowing how water soaked my pod still was early on. I did the PH and calibration all before planting with thoughts that I was good to go…also just completed another check prior to starting this grow…everything seems to be checking out on my end so maybe it could be the system itself. I will see how this one goes having pre germinated as i seen that being recommended….if that fails I know ill need the team at grobo then for sure lol…for now as a disabled vet all I have is time!

As I zoomed in on the picture from above, you might be correct. Lower in the hole of the pod, the stem does look restricted but a little hard to tell. For this grow, start with the pod about an inch above the lid. The pod will stay wet enough to help your roots and seed grow, but it will also help it start to dry out from the beginning.

As a fellow vet, thank you for your service!

Yeah i can remember reading in this panel of course now after the fact not to put seed so far down in coco pod, however when i pulled my seed out my little happy self just dropped it down as far as the eye could see in that hole lol!!! Which thinking back was rather deep… so unknowingly :man_shrugging:t5: ….

Its An Honor thank you as well!

2nd time is a charm for me hopefully! Day 9 of germ seems to be doin much better this time I allowed seed to pop in damp napkin for 5 days did not allow seed to go deep in pod cut pod down side to allow for easy insert of seedling. Got the fans now using the hydro guard too hoping to see a transition here now that im going into early veg in 2 days. Pod is dry, roots are long enough and drinking hope I didn’t miss anything this time :muscle:t5::pray:t5:

Day 5 early veg. Anyone know when the nutrients in bottles #4 and #5 get used? Seems as if they have never dosed. Do they dose at a certain time period?

2 Likes

So mine added nutrients on the third water change. I’m on day six early veg. And got a notification about roots from the app. I changed the water yesterday. Day five and nutrients dispersed. Hope it helps

Today I discovered after a scheduled weekly drain and fill yesterday that my nutrients numbers 3,4 and 5 are not dosing. Numbers 1 and 2 dosed accordingly for ph up and down with no issues. Today I opened a ticket and was advised to complete an additional drain and fill which I did however still no nutrient dose. I was advised to dose by hand but the amount was not provided. I seen on allgrowers that someone was doing 15ml of each so thats what I went with so we shall see. However the grobo team still plans to see what my issue is exactly!
