Hi all, i've been growing for about 3weeks now and i've been getting some problems with the leaves and growth!!
1) i Have 3 plants growing and 1 cheese cutting. The one i put in a 4L pot and is growing massive every day (its a Persian Bud) the second one is a Persian Bud aswell but its not as big as the first one and i looking very strange?
The last one is a Big Bud if you can call it that lol Its the smallest one i have!
2) on my cutting the cut leaves were turning very yellow and i just transplanted into 3L pots, the Persian has a spot on it where its just dried it out and the leaves are turning up on the edges
I have a 300w CLF dual spectrum (red + blue) and its 6" off the plants
Pictures to follow
Any help would be better than nothing
What is the medium you are growing them in and what nutrients are you using first off?
Sorry for the late reply lol forgot how to get this page back up.
Im growing 3 plants in a mix of coco pro and perlite and my cheese cutting i just transplanted into just coco pro.
All the plants except the cutting are 3 weeks old but the one Persian Bud is a monster which is wider than my hand and about 3inches tall. The second one is a Persian as well but its half the size and the leaves have gone a bit strange?
The third one is a Big Bud but its not getting very big or tall what so ever!
The last one is a cheese cutting i had off a mate of mine which had already rooted but after 2-3 days the lower leaves started to turn yellow? i can see new growth but it looks a little greenish yellow? is this right?
Im using superthrive and starting off with a 1/4 strength coco nutrients A+B as of yesterday. Is it the right time to start them off on nutrients? I have no idea on how to keep the nutrients going, when to give it to them how often? When to just add water? When to flush or how?
I have the 300w dual spectrum light with the blue spectrum facing the plants on 24/7 and about 6inches off the tops of the plants but they dont seem to be growing tall as i've seen on other pics at the same age?
Please help me. as i need it big time lol

Bump. Any help would be great.......
No 2 plants will grow the same, each and everyone of them are different in some way. Your plants look pretty healthy for the size they are, the one you say is a little yellow, look at the tip top where the new growth is forming see the greenness? When they are very young do not add nutrients (under 1 week old) it may kill them. 1 plant where your hand is I would love to have 1 like it! Damn Fine Speciem. <g> It looks like you are using peatmoss to grow in, I use soil I mix up.
But your plants are really doing good, they need a little time and if you are feeding them the same and all the grow medium was mixed together and put into pots all the same, then give the little ones time to grow. If you have 1 growing good and all the others were planted the same way and more or less the same time you have done all you can at the moment, it's up to the plants. Sometimes they just don't make it (bad seed, who knows?)
Superthrive I know of it from long ago, grandparents used it (I'm 53 <g>), it's good.
Plants will at times have a bad place on a leaflet, it happens, if it looks like it is spreading then that is time to worry and do research.
If your light isn't too hot you can put it lower/closer to the plants, just put your hand under it and notice the distance when you feel it get hot, that will give your plants more lumens.
Plants go thru different "spells" concerning growth, some is slower some are faster.
Follow directions on the label for the nutrients. It should say how and what amounts to feed the plants, my guess without actually looking at them is that if they say mix it with water to feed them then it should also say how many times and/or time between feedings? Watering can easily be judge by sticking your finger in the soil, if it feels damp it is fine, if it feels dry it needs a little water and DO NOT DROWN the plants. Mostly if the leaves are pricker and/or fine looking without any droop then it is fine. It doesn't hurt it to dry out somewhat at times.
Don't worry about flushing right now.
