Shes the only one of 3 seeds that sprouted and she seems to be super slow :(
Just for comparison, my critical jack auto of the same age:

Both in same box, light, soil and no nutes (so far).


Hi man and welcome to the site!

What soil mix have u put the vertigo into man? Maybe the nutes in the soil were a bit too strong for her and has stunted her growth?

hi and thx :)
the soil -should- be okay, the upper 2/3 in the pots are seedling-soil (compo), only the lower 1/3 is regular soil (compo too). Both of them mixed with coco for better drainage.
Thats my mix for years and so far it worked good...until the vertigos :roll: two didnt germinate at all and the third is a slow starter but thats nature ;)
Luckily the CJA is enjoying all the love she gets and its only a testrun for the new minibox after all...

Hi Lochkaese and welcome to the support forum.

Here's a few questions to see if and how to help you out;
    * What kind of lights do you use?
    * At what distance do you keep the lights from the top of your plants?
    * About germination: how did you exactly germinate?

It seems the Vertigo is pretty wet. You could try to NOT water it for a day, or maybe even two days. Usually the plant will have a grow spurt when you do this. Too much water makes the plant lazy and will also develop a less vigorous roots system...

Let me know...
Cheers.

Hi, sry for the late reply :P

* What kind of lights do you use?

I modified my old motherbox and they started growin under 4x 33w cfl´s 6500k, right now they are under 2x33w 6500 + 2x33w 2700, in a few days i will change it to 4x 33x 2700k.

* At what distance do you keep the lights from the top of your plants?

Since its only cfl´s I keep them at a istance of only about 3-4 cm. I have 2 small fans circulating the air at the cfl´s so the temps are okay (so far).

* About germination: how did you exactly germinate?

I put the seeds directly to soil, every time. I dont like the extra step when germinating them in paper towels but these are my first autos so maybe next time i try the papertowel-method...
what do you suggest?

It seems the Vertigo is pretty wet.

Yeah thats because i take the photos when i take the girls out of the box to water them, so in most cases they are fresh watered in my pics...

the good news: 2-3 days after i took the pic of the small verticgo, she went into fullspeed-mode and now she looks pretty okay.
Here´s day 21:

some small burnings on the top, she stretched about 3cm overnight...

Looks like you pretty much do everything the way you supposed to... Looks healthy! Nice deep green colours, velvet leaves, 5 or more 'fingers' to a leaf... :)

Just the CFL's... YOu have any photo's from a previous grow in flowering? Would love to see how 2x33W works! :D

Regarding germination; I always drop the seeds in a glass of water. Just tap water. Not too cold and def. not hot.

Keep us posted!

Thanks.
