Now that it's legal to grow, I decided to try growing my own. I bought a 1000 W LED light and have set up my seedlings in a 2 ft high area and the light is approximately 9 inches from top of plants. If they ever get going, I'll move everything to a taller area.
Notice the two plants that are falling over. What causes this? They were sprouted using the wet paper towel method and have now been in the soil about 10 days. Notice how they are drooping over and twisty.
The two plants that are fairly straight and strong were planted directly in the soil about 5 days ago. They look good now but I'm worried the same will happen to them.
The two pots with nothing in them are seeds using the paper towel method. I'm guessing I damaged them in planting or something else. Given I'm 2/2 with soil sprouting and 2/4 with paper towel sprouting, I'll stick to soil sprouting!
To water, I'm using a spray bottle and misting them. I'm doing this every day, but if anything, the soil seems dry. But I'm really not sure if I'm over/under watering and this could well be the problem. The soil is FoxFarm Ocean Forest which the nursery recommended. I've added nothing else. This is in a garage so it's a little toasty (<80F) especially in daytime (southern california) and gets somewhat humid. There's no insulation in garage.
Can anyone tell by the pictures what is going on, especially with the two droopy, twisty ones? Please let me know if I can provide any extra info.
The end goal of this plant is suppose to be reduced anxiety and depression. Right now, it's having the opposite effect :)
Additional info: The light source is BLOOM PLUS LED Grow Light BP 1000W 2x2ft Coverage Sunlike Full Spectrum Grow Light for Indoor Plants with 336packs Samsung Diodes(Includes IR) which upon reading the fine print on Amazon is 90 W, not 1000W. Not sure why they have 1000W in title. I am a newbie so I don't know how far away from plants it should be. In a desperate attempt to save my babies, I've been putting them outside during the day for natural sunlight and breeze. No difference really. I've done this for the past two days. The limpy ones look even worse, the two good ones look about the same!
