OK, so i just got back from buying some root hormone and fert from wal-mart. I wasn't exactly sure what to buy so i just got a couple things. I couldn't find anything that said "root compound" or "root hormone" so i bought some transplanting solution that promotes new roots. I also got some Expert gardener brand all purpose plant food. The NPK of this is 24-8-16,I also bought another thing of all purpose food made by miracle grow, the NPK of this one is 15-30-15. Which would be better for veg state? Also, Mutt if your out there, i made the humidity box you told me to. Should i put water in the bottom of the tray or some transplanting solution mixed with water?
Oh damn i didnt realize i was signed in under my roommates name, this is Bouq to clear any confusion.Sorry about that
I hope me and my roomate aren't bothering u guys with all these questions, we are just starting out, and i dont want to be "good" at growing plants i want to be "GREAT".
transplanting solution
.."Olivias"?? I've been useing olivias cloning solution for a couple of months, per directions, with satisfactory results.
24-8-16 is your vegging nute(ni-N), it being a chemical fertilzer, I would recommend starting at no more than half the directed dosage. Adding more is easy, getting it back out after adding too much, isn't.

Wiser words have never been said! After all these years, Hick, I think over ferting is the most common problem. You might want to make a sticky outta that phrase! Great Advice!!!!!!!!
