Hi everyone!

I am starting 10 different varieties using two inch pots with seed starter mix from plantation products (something I found at meijer) and using a heating mat. The all the seeds came up in 4 to 7 looking good, after about three day Every plant had brown tips on the leafs curling under now about a week and a half later I've seen no growth. I checked the soil temp its around 85 to 90 I havn't used any fertilizers The water is good country well water. using 24hr t5 CFL light.. What is going wrong? what should I do? Thanks for any help

I would guess soil temp or the soil might not have the right nutes.

Have you checked the PH? I had a buddy and he thought the well water would be great, he metered it and ended up having to buy jug water at the store.... Maybe I am wrong just an idea. The only other thing I could think of might be the dirt I have heard that most "franchise stores" (mejier,walmart,etc) isn't good for growing marijuana.... Hope you can figure something out... Good Luck

I didn't even know T5's produced heat (anything noticeable).... Learn something new everyday =)

I think he meant the heat coming up from the heating pad...

 

T5s do produce heat, it is just spread out over a larger area, which allows it to dissipate faster and in less space (from the plant). They can depending on the number and wattage, get warm enough to heat a grow room.
