    Coco is some very advanced medium to start in. MagCal is a must and most has a shot of N to start with.

    Temps and humidity play a big role in young plants. They take in moisture through there leafs. Warm and humid 75-80 and 50-60RH

    Ya. I figure I really screwed this up. I kept temp and humidity right in the zones. Part of me thinks I either did not start with nutes soon enough and when I did it was too little.....Or I started nutes too early and burnt the crap out of em. I am going with the former. So I flushed and watered with nutes.

    Initially growth was very slow with no nutes. Went to nutes one time and saw the plants grow real quick for about two days and then all of a sudden leaves started looking dead near the tips and it spread from there.

    check your drainage. Give 1 tsp calimagic/gallon of water, make sure u are PH'ing to 5.5-5.7.
    Keep an eye on your NPK numbers and cut back on the micronutrients.

    Also, check how cold she gets at night.

    I am looking better. New growth all looks great and the death stopped spreading. I really worked on dialing in my temp/humidity conditions by adding a small thermostat programmable heater and a tiny little wand humidifier thingy.

    Figuring my problem on the white widow was both a calcium and nitrogen deficiency. The critical widow looked like cold, nitrogen deficiency and maybe a Phosphorus deficiency.

    At first I thought it was too many nutes cause they were so little. But there was no way. I gave them nutes 1 time and it was 1/6th of the seedling stage and at this point they were on there third node when they got such a little feeding. The grew up overnight after the first nutes. Then they started to look sick (cold), then I immediately flushed thinking too many nutes. Then they just got deficient. I think.

    I really don't know, but thats what I have been treating and it has improved.

    Transplanted into 7 gallon pots, 70% coco/30% perlite. Rockin' and rolling after a tough tough start. White widow is minutes from being culled. She just did not want to throw down some roots and grow. 20180102_173214.jpg 20180102_173214.jpg
