First Night is about the first time a person experiences darkness. When we sleep, our bodies go through many changes that prepare us for death. We have been asleep for approximately 14 hours at this point. Our heart rate slows down, breathing stops, and body temperature drops (this will be the last time for a while). While sleeping our brain goes into a deep state of rest where it is able to perform its best work. If anything disturbs the sleep cycle, we may experience disrupted dreams (sometimes called hypnagogic or hypnopompic states) and nightmares. Dreams and nightmares are often related to emotions, memories, and anxieties of the day. They can also be triggered by medication side effects and other factors.
The first day after germination is usually called the “first night”. This is probably due to the fact that this is when you first start noticing any changes in your seedlings.
As I said before, the first few days are kind of like a waiting game until the seed starts to sprout. You should expect some minor changes in the beginning. What you want to look out for is whether they have started to develop tiny roots or not. If they do, chances are good that they have begun forming what is known as callus. Callus can sometimes be quite hard to spot without magnification, but if you know what it looks like, then it shouldn’t be too difficult to tell. Basically, what has happened is that the seed has formed some sort of protective covering around it. This is to help protect the seed from being eaten away by something that might harm the embryo inside. So, now that you have a decent amount of time to observe your seedlings, try to start looking for these little root-like things under the surface of the callus. These are your true roots! First night
If your seedling does not seem to be showing any sign of developing roots, don’t worry. Just wait longer. There’s still plenty of time. First night
1. Grow lights
It takes time to establish a good rhythm between your plants and their environment. Lighting plays a huge role in this equation. In general, if you are looking at a first-night cycle, you want to start with some type of light that brings out the early stages of flowering (or whatever stage you’re interested in). First night
Watering should be done just before your last scheduled feeding. If you don’t have any control over watering, then your best bet is to water your plants before they go into the dark. That way, the plants will absorb moisture from their roots and begin to use it before they go into the darkness. This ensures that the plants do not need to expend too much energy trying to convert water back into food through photosynthesis. First night
Feeding your plants can be tricky. You may think that it’s best to leave them alone until they start to show signs of growth but, if you do so, you won’t get the big yields that you want. Some growers recommend waiting until the day after you’ve fed your plants for the first time. However, by doing this, the plant will have had plenty of time to metabolize its meal and will therefore become less sensitive to the fertilizer. First night
