    Thank you for replying. What do you suggest I do to get the excess Nitrogen out of the soil? Any simple tips you can give?

    Let soil dry out and only give plain water for the next three waterings. Letting your soil dry out is a must.

    get it out of the terracotta pot. those pots hold moisture and slow the rate that the soil dries out.

    Go pickup some fabric pots (smart pots) and only water it once or twice a week in soil. stick ur finger into the soil, and u should be down to the first knuckle when u first feel moisture.

    Peace and love.

    Thank you for replying to my post. The store near me right now doesnt have any other kind of pots available right now. I can order some but that will take a few days. Im my area where its being grown, the temp is around 85-87 degrees. It seems to be drying out pretty quick with the fan i have on it. I kinda have another issue going on right now too though. I just seen that i accidentally cracked/split the stem about an 1/8". That has me worried as all hell. Did i just kill one of these plants? Is there a way to fix it? If so should i start taking clones off of this thing right away before it dies? I cant believe that this happened and was too careless to have that happen.

    WAY to hot buckaroo. Turn that from 62-77 and u will see a massive boost in the health of her.

    If your home is running heat this time of year, odds are your indoor humidity is in the low 20's to mid 40's. This is too low for veg, it will cause transpiration from the leaves at a higher rate than the roots are able to uptake water., This will make u have wilty leaves, even if the soil is saturated. Its a really really bad situation to put her in. You need to have better ventilation... odds are it isn't that warm this time of year inside your living space... so find a way to get that heat outa there.

    Dont quite luv ya yet, work on it.

    Ok i will try and get the heat out of there. Ill try switching the position of the fan so it is blowing the hot air out, instead of having air blowing on them. I dont have the heat on alot just yet. I use a gas fireplace just to get the chill out. The problem im gonna have is keeping the hunidity up. Not exactly sure how im gonna accomplish that just yet. Since ive been giving straight water they perked up a bit, but they can definitely be better

    you have a lot of air movement and you're using a gas fireplace, i bet your relative humidity is very low. your root zone might be wet, but your plants are having to work too hard to transpire.
    get a small cool mist humidifier for your grow room and i bet you see a world of difference.
    that being said, it does look like you are over watering a little.
    lst isn't a problem, as long as you don't get ridiculous with it. as far as breaking a stem, as long as over half the bark is still on it, tape that bad boy up, splint it if you have to, it'll be fine

    try to keep it around 75-77 that seems to be the sweet spot for me yours may differ, also let the soil dry a good amount between waterings, two things new growers do is iver water and over feed, your having some deficiencies as well maybe lockout from the over watering i dont see too much nitrogen but icould be wrong looks like its lacking a micro nutrient to me

    I dont have room to add a humidifier. Im using a space that is 30" high x 29" long and about 20" deep. The best i can do is get the temp to about 77 right now. I can try a bigger fan but im not sure if thats gonna help or not. The crack in the stem is about maybe an 1/8" long n not deep. I actually electrical taped it up. The main stem isnt dying out or anything yet.

    Im using the fox farm trio and was on week 2 of the schedule. Not exactly sure what lockout is. How can i correct that? Just give it regular water?

    Run the humidifier on the outside of your grow space. It will raise the humidity in the grow area. I run one in the room where my grow cabs are. Went from low 30's up to around 50% humidity.

    Im looking at small humidifiers on walmarts site now. They have some small ones that should help out. Do you think misting the leaves when the lights are off will help out also?

    too much water can cause lockout, but also you should feed full dose you should feed a quarter then work your way up
    but yes just clean water phd water anyways lol but let the soil dry between feedings 2 or 3 times a week should be your watering schedule unless youre in tiny pots then you will obviously need to water more

    I wouldn't mist the leaves at lights out. Good way to get pm or mold.

    One of the cheap humidifier will work fine. Get the cool air ones not the steam kind.

    don't mist when lights are off. that way lies powdery mildew.... also, don't mist them under the lights, pull them out and let them dry off a little before you put them back under the lights, or the droplets can focus like a magnifying glass and burn little holes in your leaves.

    Not true. Mine were struggling. Blanket statements like that don't really help.

    I prefer lower humidity than most but once it gets low enough there will be problems.
