Should I start over or continue?
Hey guys, I was recently brought to this community by a fellow grower who has a lot of experience and has taught me some things in the short time I spoke with them and I plan to learn from them but they specialize in photos which is what brings me to ask here to get further opinions.
So, I have two autos growing in 5 gal smart pots outside in my balcony which has plenty of light but there are spots of shade I can move my plant to when/if I have to and if it is raining hard, it doesn't affect my plants due to the top of my balcony having a roof.
That being said, my plants have been stressed due to my dog (Darn German Shepherds! lol)
2 maybe 3 days after my seed popped out of my coco medium, he dug out the entire seedling with some coco medium and tossed it on the floor on top of the medium. Luckily he did this when I was nearby so I was able to put it back in with fresh coco medium (From Canna) and adjust the perlite ratio to make up for what was lost. He did something similar to my other plant but he didn't take it out, he just slightly shifted the medium and my plant went from being in the middle of the smart pot, to being near the edge. I quickly adjusted it as well.
Some background information: Germination began May 28. on May 31 they went into CoCo Medium, June 2nd they popped out of soil and a couple days later my dog disturbed them, they have not been disturbed since thankfully.
That being said, today marks 8 days from when they broke soil and I feel they are just extremely small for their age and I am at a point where I am not sure if I am wasting my time with these plants or if I should buy different seeds.
As for watering, I am using Seed to Stoned feeding schedule which is the Lucas Formula. I don't know if I am overwatering or not but I am just keeping my coco medium wet/moist for the most part and the most runoff I get when I feed is 10-20% no more.
Currently I am growing AKxCritical Mass and Cheese which I ordered from True North Seed Bank, genetics are from Canuk.
My next plants will be 3 Pineapple Express autos from Barneys Farm since I read great reviews for it so once these plants are finished, the next set of seeds will be those.
I will attach some photos of both plants that I took earlier today. The one that was uprooted and thrown to the floor is actually growing the best of the two, double the size of leaves actually.
