    Hello, i'm on my first AeroGarden grow, yes im a newb and i need some help.

    I am using the AGv100, my plants(3 of them) are 1 1/2 weeks along, and the first set of leaves have turned yellow, not my second node though, just the first set of leaves have turned yellow for all 3 plants. I have not put in any nutes yet, i have the stock AG lights on top and a 65watt plant reflector light a foot infront of it. This light throws off alot of heat and its the third day i've had the new light on it(i really think this is why they changed). Now, where im growing is a little hot and humid, and the water i first used was out of the fosit and i didnt let water sit out to get rid of chlorine, could these reasons be why my bottom leaves are turning so yellow? I do not have any pictures at this moment but if anyone has any idea what i could do and what the problem could be please feel free to give me advice. Also, i transplanted these from soil after their 5 days of sprouting.

    those are just retard leaves, they always fall off, the new leaves are sucking the water and life out of them to grow. don't worry. A lot of the leaves fall off.

    Well my peppas is sure looking sick. Only 2 out of seven germinated and they little stunted looking things that are leaned over and looking like they are fixing to die. I reseeded all the sponges where nothing grew. Guess if they grow I will have plants of different ages in there. They are in distilled water with no nutes. Only thing is I got the gizmo on the tomaters and peppas setting and the pump dont seem to operate very often at that setting. Wondering is they need mo water or anything I could do to cheer em up? Thanks.

    Okay whew, thanks guys i appreciate the info. One more thing though, will you guys look at my setup (i know its nothing special) but the light is what im worried about. It's a 65watt plant reflector? I picked it up at walmart. I just want to know if thihs light and the stock AG light is enough until flowering? heres a pic

    the first set of leaves (cotyledon) always turn yellow and wither as the seedling grows more nodes and sets of leaves
    ---wish you luck with your grow :)

    I hope you have Some other light source. The one you have isnt reall good. Im not sure but I dont think It will make them grow at all. The box said makes plants "look" better. That word look makes my think it wont do much for you. plus its only 65w not enough to do anything.

    Okay guys went to hope depot and check this out. I have 2 100 watt cfls hooked up. Is this going to be enough? And also, now my 1st node is turning yellow at the end of the leaves on all 3 plants. I put in 1/4 ts of pure blend pro grow nutes last night and they have gotten yellower. I have my lights running 24/7.

    Not sure about the light. I guess if your not looking to get muvh in the end its ok. It all depends on the situation. I know I would hate to get busted for some half ass grow room that only gives me 1/4oz a month. That said, do some reserch see what you can do to get more light bet keep in mind more light=more heat so you may need to adress that. I have lots of money invested in my grow but its an investment. Doing the math with cost on equipment power use ferts ect. Ill save 5 grand a year. I smoke alot so for me its worth it. If you dont smoke an oz a week or more id just find a good supply to pick up a bag now and then. Growing is lots of work to do it right and it akes an outlay of cash up front. As far as the yellowing... I want to say its the ferts in the soil. seeds have all they need for a week or so and then you should only feed very lightly. You have no controll if the soil has ferts in it when you buy it thats why im ot a fan of it. Hope this helps.

    we have plenty of light. dont listen to this dude, people have flowered with less, he thinks if u dont have a huge expensive grow set, u wont be able to grow anything. WRONG! im doin with bare minimum and succeeding u have seen my plants. this dude obviously didnt do his homework.

    All im saying is you get out what you put in. If you dont want much in the end then 200wwatts is fine. Like I said If you smoke an oz or mere a week you will not be able to supply yourself with what you use with that set up. why risk getting busted for some tinny grow? do it right or dont bother.

    I would listen to docD. The more light the better for the plants and therefore the better the yield. Also your plants could be "light" due to lack of light. I suspect however you need to start lightly nuteing. I'd try 1/2 strength "Age Old Kelp" as a follier spray and water fora week (along with the increased light). GL HH

    So thats your advice to a newb? That's horrible. And also, who says im in risk of getting busted? This is my first grow and i see my plants growing just fine the way they are. I still plan on buying weed and growing it, i'm not starting to grow so i can pay the bills at the house, its recreational.
