I Can't Figure This Out
Hi all, new user here, long time reader. Hoping for a bit of advice if anyone has any insight on the issues I'm having.
I've had about 8 good runs, mainly from seed, got some good clones once, but haven't had too much success since. I generally have issues 4-5 weeks into flowering, but nothing that does enough harm to spoil me from hefty crops. I always considered my strong suit the seedling and veg stage, but lately that doesn't seem to be the case. I've started a few separate batches over the past month that all have for the most part failed(about 30 seeds and i have 2 plants that are growing ok).
I've been kicking myself for what I presumed were problems caused by me being lazy, but now on my 3rd batch of seeds(my sweet money) I'm at my wits end.
The seedlings basically get two sets of true leaves(less than 2 weeks in) and then show leaf tip burn, rapidly yellow then basically cease growth.
At first I thought the soil was too hot because it probably was(FFOF for seedlings...lazy!). I tossed the seedlings when they pretty much stopped growing.
Next batch same thing, but I used a generic, weak soil mix bought from the garden centre, which they use to start all their vegetable seedlings. Ph is always between 6.5-6.8 when watered, no feed given because I never have and not had problems.
3rd batch. I give up. I bought miracle grow seed mix... I just want some seedlings to survive! Alas, same thing.
My temps are good, they're in a closet under 2 fluorescent tubes, humidity fine, fan on while light is, door open so it doesn't get stuffy.
I'm clearly not good at being concise, but any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated!
