I'm actually pretty flattered you thought it was store bought . got me blushing over here.
Your right dude i apologize. First grow and all got me stressin lol take a look at this and tell me wht i can do
that happens when grown in a clear pot, every time
Its not in a clear pot.
Standard 5 gal dwc
pH is off, or you feed it too much too soon. Plant that size should only see 1/4 strength, Nutes. pH'd at 5.8.
Im at 1/4
Back your light off to at least 14-18"
Ok - I see where you're going with it and your concept is sound but maybe a little more pieces and parts than necessary. Take a peek at my super cheap DIY seedling bubble bucket. I clone first in an EZ Cloner and then pop them in here for a few weeks to get the roots nice and long. Then when I transplant them into the net pot, I can feed the long roots right through the bottom and it's good to go. No waiting for another week for the roots to show through. All light proof and all Home Depot/Amazon inexpensive.
Just some ideas maybe. You're on the right track
Nice bruv. I use mainly autoflowers at the moment
Still, any that I start as seeds go right in that bucket after germinating until the roots are long enough to transplant. super easy.
I have 3 auto THC Bomb going in hempy buckets.
The spotting has spread to newer growth. I think its because i yadnt changed the water in a couple weeks. Ramped her up to half strength an sensi and b52
At this small stage, especially being a bit banged up in the lower leaves, it's probably not more food that it needs, but less. Either it's got too much already or something in your nutrient chemistry is off for some reason.
You can forgo the sensi for now because there isn't significant dead root mass that needs to be broken down yet. Also, the B52 is only recommended after week 3 - for a healthy plant. Even then, personally, I would reconsider whether it's worth it to use, or if it's going to bump up your PPM past where the plants want. More stuff doesn't mean better.
I'd go back to 1/4 strength nutes and a root stimulator like Rhizotonic or similar. Leave it there until you get a good, healthy set of leaves out and in decent shape. THAT'S when they'll start using food. Then go to 1/2 until there's another good set of leaves or 2 - then maybe consider your other stuff.
A question though - what kind of water are you using, city, RO, bottled? And are you using any sort of ca/mg supplement? It could be a ca/mg issue...
RO water no cal sup.
I tried laying out my nute schedule based on the veg time of this strain
Bingo. You'll need that - that's what it is. It's a crucial micronutrient. I use CaliMagic but there are others.
In a normal outdoor environment a plant gets ca/mg naturally from the mineral content of the soil - as well as silica. In Hydro, there isn't any unless you're using a water source that has it in it. In most city water, there is plenty of it present to not need to supplement it. However, the other stuff in city water often makes it unsuitable for hydro use. RO obviously takes out everything, including the ca/mg, so you'll need to add it back into your mix BEFORE you mix the other stuff.
Silica is another good thing to add to your mix. It helps plants build strong cell walls and stems, and makes leaves harder for pests and mold to colonize. I use ProteKt but again theres plenty other. Silica supplements should mixed first - even before ca/mg.
So your mix:
- Things like root stimulators, and Sensi (non-nutrient additives)
Final ph adjust
Those schedules are sort of a perfect case scenario - for healthy plants. If your plant gets beat up for some reason, it kind of stalls it's growth as it tries to sort itself out - so, in turn, you need to sort of pause the feed schedule and help it get squared away. Once good growth has really taken hold, then you can resume it.
Understood hope this works thanks for saving my baby
you need a pH and EC meter ASAP. pH needs to be 5.5 to 6.1 EC should be maybe 0.5 ish. if you are just guessing, you'll never be successful.
