They will right themselves if you baby them a little. With the price of some seeds, it's totally worth the trouble.
All these years I thought this to be 'normal'. Yes they will right themselves but I just ad more media around said seedling. It stands up fine after that..

The part of your post that confused me was you starting by advocating the use of glue on "any" screw "connections" in your grow.

You then said that you discovered a light had a problem.

At this point it sounded as if the "screw connection" you were referencing in regard to glueing, was a light screw connection, partly because of the story so far but also because "screw connection" is a term thats more applicable to electrical lamp connections than threaded fasteners.
Lets not start a shit storm brother.. I didnt say glue I said locktite.. the light was dying and coincidentally the light cord was somewhat loose.. sorry I didnt understand your post..

My Grow this time around is in an old basement 4'x3.5' shower stall. I lined the walls with reflective insulation, but, of course, the front side was open. I'm not worried about light leak/invasion so I don't need a real door for it, but it did mean a 'dark side' for any plant on that side of the shower.


I took one of my older, big, photography reflectors down and use it on the open side. It's light-weight, easy to roll out of the way, easy to wipe down and keep clean, and, of course, it is highly reflective. Makes a great 'door' for the stall!

Y r u not worrying about light leaks? Some Velcro strips and some panda film would do the trick.

Yeah, it's in a basement in an old, empty house, and the only thing that the basement gets used for at this time is growing, and I'm not perpetual at this time so there is no veg/flower division on time. So, when lights go out, they are OUT and it is black as can be down there.


But I WILL keep your suggestion on hand for when I DO go perpetual! Thank you!


Peace,

Oh, and using just the reflector at this time instead of sealing it all the way up allows much more/better air/heat/humidity exchange in the plant area.

Hi, Moonymonkey!


I, too, use split watering now since reading Dave Coulier's Afropip Durban Poison thread. I do pretty much as he describes - I bottom feed for about 30 minutes, then remove the plants from the solution pouring out whatever is left in the trays that they didn't soak up and quick dropping and tilting that plants when I lift them out to disrupt the PWT. While they are getting their heavy watering like that, I also lightly water from the top with a syringe with my Z7 1+2 in it and anything else I'm adding that day.


And you are right - they are up-taking and using a lot more water this way, and growth has been MUCH more robust since I started doing it this way!


Peace,
Maven

That's true, but for that to work, you had to have thought ahead to leave enough room in your container for more medium.

As seedlings begin to produce their own sugars and building blocks they will utilize these for additional cell growth, in addition to apical growth there will also be lateral growth (strengthening the stem).

Ever notice what happens when seeds are germinated and grown in total darkness? They’re leggy, pale, and flopping over. They’re using stored food reserves for apical growth, searching for light.
