Good, I see you have found the journal page in our forum.

If those little girls have roots it's time to move on up to the east side. Mix your nutes at half strength of what is suggested in the grow manual and fill your reservoir as indicated in your manual. Put your larger rockwools right into that solution in your reservoir. Let them soak for a few hours. after they have soaked put your babies and the little rockwool into the larger rockwool. (Tip: punch out the bottom center of the larger rock wool first. This will help the roots to grow faster and reach the reservoir). Make sure your air stones are turn on. Make sure your timed water is turned on also. You with me? Go ahead do it now. Take some pics and report back here telling us what you have done and ask any questions that come up.

Peace and love brother. It's like riding a bike. I'm your training wheels, you will not fall, I promise.

When are you going to move them into the grow side of your box. They really need to be over that nutrient solution so the roots strive (grow) towards the water. By hand feeding them and quenching their thirst you are not enticing them to grow. They have to be a bit thirsty to seek nutrition. I strongly suggest you begin their next stage of like. Procrastination at this point will become detrimental and your plants may suffer. It's like children, you have to let go little by little so they can grow and become all they can be. In the beginning, it's hard to understand the fine line between caring and suffocating concern. Be brave my friend. show your babies the world and let them be them. Peace and love.

That's because you are probably over watering them. They have no reason to search for water on their own. Transfer them. Get to the next stage of life. It's time. The roots will be attracted to the bubbles the airs tones create. It will be a bit slower because of the fact you didn't punch the hole out but they will still reach that water. It's what they are designed to do by God. God is the designer, you are His gardener. The plants themselves will grow unless you get in the way by feeding them to the point they get lazy. You want them outside playing in the yard and not in the house with a bag of flaming hot cheetos and soda pop. You control the environment, God has the growing planed out pretty good. So understand that, you're their caretaker, not their maker. Let them be hungry for life. You just provide the environment. Peace and love brother.

hey so tomorrow I should start Half nutes or give it one more week and less water let them mature a little bit more So the root can look for water, I remember the root came out of the 1 inch rockwool quickly when it was sitting on the tray and the tray had some water at the bottom of it

Yeah, you shouldn't really have water in that tray but I'll help you with that next time if you like. Transfer them tomorrow with half strength nutes. Go ahead and put enough nute solution into your reservoir so that the water level is about one inch from the bottom of the baskets. Put your neoprene covers on the baskets being careful not to hurt the plants. This prevents algae from growing. Also be sure to cover any holes you are not using so no light penetrates into the reservoir. Make sure your stones are bubbling and that your water rocker switch is on. Peace and Love my friend.

Oh, my bad. You will see a plug for the timed water ... be sure to plug that in. It will come on once a day right before the lights come on to give your babies a rinse and a taste of life. It just gives them a kiss good morning. It won't be on long enough to soak them. It will encourage them to seek (grow) the reservoir solution.

Yes I am crying out I am in need I would love your help please so tomorrow I’m going to start germinating the seeds in a glass of water i’ll let you know when I start and I’ll take pictures even starting in the cup of water I think I’m gonna do seven star killer’s that should be perfect they’ll probably be ready and I can add a few clones with them i’m so excited they say I have three cycles of nutes I just hope I don’t have to worry for at least six months

Do you know how to install the water pump in the reservoir ... refer to your manual as often as needed.
