Early Stage Help

Hello. I started these on the 25th with prebuffed Cyco CoCo Perlite mix. Misted them until they sprouted. On the 27th the coco was completely dry so I did their first watering until 20% run off came out. I added some Canna start with the water. The readings for the water were 6.0ph PPM: 400ish and EC: 0.6. (Got the Bluelab Conductivity Pen the next day so didn’t measure EC or PpM prior to using it, however I did recreate the next day and those were the readings.Runoff was the same at 6.0ph) Since then I have kept their domes off and lightly misted. Today the CoCo is starting to dry out again. I have made a new batch of nutes at 5.8PH EC:1.1 and PPM: 770 using around 7m/l per half gallon of Rhizotonic and about 10ml/half gal Canna Start. Should I water again with this batch of water. Should I stick to misting with the dome on? At this stage should I soak the bottom of the pots? Hold off on adding nutes? Also one of them is slightly bent. Which is why I am worried about watering. Any help is appreciated.

I use a spray bottle , 2 sprays at the base 2 more in the dome I use, twice a day.

Okay cool. That’s what I’ve been doing. Minus the one watering. Would this water interfere down the line? Or would signs be apparent already? Also, at what stage would I introduce a full watering cycle with feed?

Feed will start soon I think in Coco.

Right according to the chart it calls for it in seedling stage so I really wasn’t sure. But with them being so delicate at this age it seems that a lot of people hold off on anything but PH water this early? From what I’ve seen anyways. It seems like a lot of things can be beneficial at this stage but also be a ticket for a failure. Better safe then sorry I guess. What is a good indicator they will be able for feed?

Can’t really tell you, I’m a soil guy so I wait 4 weeks, but I know Coco you need it sooner

No worries. Maybe someone can chime in. This is my first go at this in any form. I’m more worried about it being too dry. It just seems like they came to a halt considering they were so explosive the first couple a days. I’m probably trippin but hey. Lmao

Do you know why this would be a sign of? Anything? It’s slightly slanted and the leaves look a little bright? Idk. I’d just like to catch a problem before it worsens.

could it be growing toward the light

That’s what I thought originally so I flipped it 180 thinking it would bend the other way if it was the light. It didn’t seem to have any effect. I will rearrange to see if it changes any but as of now it’s still crooked.

Again this is my first time so I’m probably over concerned. Cheers.

i don’t think i would worry about it, you will probably want to behind them over a it grows anyways

Yeah your right. I will be training these when they are ready for it. I did just rearrange just to be 100%.
