why so slow ??

by sreveo about April 27 - report

this girl is a Skunk #1.... First time I've grown this strain , but I have grown allot of Super Skunk , with much sucess. Well... believe it or not , she's 9 days old ! I have never seen such slow groth of any of my grows. I'm using light nutrients at seedling strength , my temps are good , and she looks healthy , and lighting is good. I'm just starting to get tap roots coming out of the net pots. Is this a strain thing ? Is this a bad batch of seeds ? I've never experienced anything like this before.  Any ideas ??

    I have noticed 50 percent of my Nirvana seeds go dorment at sometimes during the seedling statge. The bad genetics cause the growing tips not to grow.  I have been buying from MSNL and I am runing a 90 percent germination to flower sucess rate. I am done with Nirvan.

      for me personally, no. if my seeds pop, its almost guaranteed to see a harvest date. gotta have patience

      I had 90% success with Nirvana seeds once they start growing they shouldn’t go dormant if all the factors are in place

    9 days above ground? I dont think your too bad and once them roots start going shes gonna take off!

    Just now I realized that nirvana has the skunk 1. I'm definitely grabbing some of these!

    What kind of nutes/supplements your using in your bucket?

    if youve got roots dropping it shouldnt take too llong before you realy get off the ground! On seedlings in DWC i like to use Rapid Start by GH

      Do you top feed by hand when they are small like this?

      you could partialy bury the stem in hydroton for support if it gets too lanky and long. you might also check to see that your airstone is good and you have lots of oxygen in the reservoir/bucket
      @ Screwstick yeah i will use a 5 ml dripper/pipette

    Looks good to me, I think its like others have said its building a root system and its about to take off. Are you using Rapid Start and Hydroguard?

    As others have said! Once the tap root hits your nutes it will grow a lot faster. Are you using a root stimulator and hydro guard?If not you should be!

    I say that 99% of Nirvana seeds pop and live to harvest if things are done properly. I don't think it is fair to give Nirvana a bad rap just because you may have done some things wrong. I do agree that every once in a while you get seeds that are not viable, but i have been buying seeds from Nirvana for many years with only a few times the seeds did not pop. You don't see 50% of the people who buy seeds from Nirvana saying 50% of Nirvana seeds are no good. Anyway, i think the seedling looks good but may have a little trouble building a good root system, but it is not very old yet either. I grow in coco/perlite mix, and i give my seedlings a water, cal mag mix for their first week. I also put Mycos & Azos in the hole when i transplant them into final containers. My seedlings are only 4 to 5 days old when they go into their final containers. It could be a genetic thing, but you would need to get others who have grown this strain to chime in on that. I hope you find your answers.  Peace

    100% of the seeds I have bought from Nirvana I have harvested. I had some OG seeds recently that gave me a scare because they took so long to pop I thought they were bad, but perseverance always pays off.50%? What seeds in particular have gone bad? Do you buy feminized?
