Just got a test kit and it looks like 8
I need to lower that soon as I can but I don’t know how, they say I can use lemon, citric acid
I put a dot of lemon to expirement and it went straight down to 5ph should I use lemon ?

Did you add mycorrhizae and dolomite lime to your soil mix? If not do it next run ;)

Make a nice light soil mix with organic compost/potting soil, perlite, vermiculite etc then make a hole to pot the plant, add some mycos to the planting hole, add plant and gently water in with a small amount of plain water 💦 You don't need to worry about ph at this early seedling stage and the liquid kits aren't particularly accurate so I'd refrain from adding anything.
I'd recommend reading about super soils in the grow faq section of the site and taking the time to make a good basic mix, it will pay itself back many times over 🌞

Today is day 5 she’s growing fast, I’m not feeding yet, I’m thinking of buying biobizz nutrients, grow, bloom and top max. When should I start feeding?

She’s starting to grow her next set of flowers
But I see a little dark on them in the middle, is that normal??
She’s growing fast and looks healthy, the other one struggled to get its seed of so I help her a lil

Hey @Stef420! :) I'd repot them asap into their final containers.
In a new soil mix you won't need to add ferts for 3 weeks or so, if you make a super soil you won't need to add ferts as everything the plant needs is all in the soil mix.
Biobizz isn't organic so it's not something I'd recommend (have used it in the distant past), it also means you'll be ph'g and measuring, adding too much and flushing etc
Organic super soil will yield more it's pretty much fool proof, aswell as being cheaper, better for the planet and the final product is a higher quality 🌞

I baught biobizz light mix soil it contains peat moss and perlite, I want to make a super soil mix but they don’t sell those ingredients here, I’m temporarily living in this small town, about 3000 people and their is nothing here 😡, their is some worms doe haha I heard they are one the best fertilizers, and germinated popcorn seed blending them up, strain it and water them, also alfalfa seeds, a simple compost tea ? Anything I can find without having to go 30 miles and pay 15 euros in train tickets ? Or buy in amazon?

It won't let me link to amazon where you are but search Fish Blood and Bone meal, the 10kg pack for 19euro is exceptional value :)
Vermiculite is inexpensive and is every bit as essential as perlite (search amazon: Vermiculite, 10 Litri) 9 euro.
You will also need the following as a minimum but I can't find them on amazon where you are, maybe worth checking ebay ;)
Kelp Meal
Dolomite lime
Mycorrhizae
It's worth the time and hassle tracking the bits down as you can reuse the mix over and over.

Hey guys so I went back to my grow shop to buy a 3.5 gallon pot, and I told him the first 3 seeds from paradise he sold me did not germinate at all, so he gave me biobizz nutrients for free!
Grow,bloom, and top max I guess I will be growing with that sorry sunshine I really wanted to grow organic but he gave me those for free and even if I did buy the stuff u told me it would be more expensive, trust me I reaserched it, I know it’s stupid u can’t get anything here, I don’t care if I have too to flush I will buy a ppm meter, just hope u guys can guide me thru a little, biobizz says their nutrients are organic, I will start feeding them slowly on week three, 0.5ml of everything but top max per gallon.

That was good of them to look after you like that, excellent customer service ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
To be fair you can't go too far wrong with the bio bizz line 👍
I'm sure you've got one of these schedules but I put I thought I'd post it here for ease o reference. You're right to start slowly with 1/2 doses, gauge how the plants react and adjust accordingly.
