These are 4 818 headbands that germinated in 2 days, put in rock wool, came up next day and this is day 4. It was close to 80 first 2 days but I got the AC rigged in and it has been 70 last 2 days. Are they stretchy??? Also when should I put them in soil? When riots start to come out bottom of rock wool?

Yeah they're a bit tall, you got them close enough to the light and some air movement in there? You'll see roots soon.

Had light about 3' up but moved it down now to like 18" I was trying to ease them into the light and keep the temp right, got it dialed in now. Light is about 18” now, got ac ducted in on temp control on 70 and holding pretty steady and humidity on a control pretty steady 50-60.

I'd turn off your co2 and not waste it now. There isn't much point yet. Let them grow some adult leaves first, at least a few nodes worth, and switch on the system when you go to full strength veg nutes around that size.
With air flow and intense light the stems will start to strengthen and the stretch will stop.
You're headed in the right direction : )

Gday Nugs420 I wouldn't be to worried about being to legy in rockwool I often split the rockwool and pull the stem down to the bottom shorten them up , I know there will be people saying you shouldn't do it but I do it all the time and have never had a problem , I think with the density of rock wool the stem pushes up while the root is trying to push down , seeds always start leggy in rockwool cubes in my experience , good luck with your grow

Word thanks, I started with the light up about 36" as I didn't want to cook them but I have everthing dialed in with the light right down about 8-10" off the little girls and they seem to be liking that better, I'll add some pics later on today to see what you guys think.

So here’s how they look today, they seem to have stopped stretching, rigid leaves are growing so pretty sure doing all right there, but what do you think about the oddball second pic? I germinated same time, it was the last one to pop and first leaves look funny, almost like the seed didn’t wanna split away? Seen this before? Please advise. I know they are not the greatest pics sorry.

You can always bury them deeper when you out them in pots where the stem is more sturdy. Wont hurt them.

Also just looked and I have roots on the 4 just barely popping out of the rockwool. In the past I have run pro mix hpcc but have been hearing coco is all the rage now. What are you guys thoughts on coco vs Pro mix?

Well I had to shit or get off the pot so I went with Promix as I have used it with decent success in the past. Should I go into smaller containers, so cups for example) or should I go right into the 7 gallon pots they are gonna live in? Thoughts?

I use promix with very good results. No issues plug and play. This part of Cali, most commercial growers use promix for the same reason.

Wow they've come a long way! And that zip tie hoop is pure genius... further proof that 96.5% of problems can be solved with zipties, duct tape, n wd40!
