    I just recently realized that half the root ball wasn't getting moisture when I watered lol. Yesterday I gave her a bathtub soak in some h20 and a full dose of Biogrow to revitalize the soil bacteria and get some nutes going.
    Still getting used to this soil and I'm definitely going back to my home made stuff for better water absorption.

    Its the basics that get me every time.
    Cheapo moisture meters aren't worth the heartache for sure. She's a seed plant so I'm not too broken up over it, but is a shame for sure. She'll bounce back right as ☔

    Exact same thing happened with my soil. Is your mix peat based? I ended up using yucca extract as a suffocant to help absorption.

    Compost on top... stays wet longer, dries evenly. And you will have roots all the way to the top of the soil.
    Soil can be hard to dial, especially when trying new brands or mixs. Your plants should green up again, looking really good otherwise man!

    I'm using sohum living soil and I believe there is some peat in the mix.
    I'm considering aloe or yucca too at this point.
    My recycled super soil is done cooking so this shouldn't be a problem next time through.... Its funny, I feed nourish and dote on my soil more than my plant sometimes.
    Bought this stuff to get going ahead of schedule.

    If it’s lockout my money is on to much P common problem with most flower nutes. They sell it with all that P because people think they need it. I barely use bloom nutes anymore.

    When ever you see yellow plants around week 3 or 4. I’d bet my arm they’re using pure bloom nutes because that’s what the silly nutrient chart tells them to do :wall:

    I spent more that a few runs mixing bloom and veg nutes on my own. Then in talking with @Dr. Who he convinced me enough to test a run without bloom nutes. Now I only use a little here and there.

    There’s a video interview with the owner of dyna gro talking about scientific points and he flat out says the plants don’t need or want the bloom nutes. But we the consumers want it so the produce it. :roll:

    I’ve never seen them green up again. Yellow will stay yellow from my experience but I’m in soilless mix

    Yep yellow is permanent. At this point all I can do is monitor what's still green.
    Fortunately I agree with Dr who on the flower nutes and don't use em.
    Got a deficiency plain and simple LOL.
    Its about time I screwed one up, the last three grows were too easy.
    Ill always show my mistakes though, everybody learns that way, and I don't come off with a huge ego.

    Harvested my second pheno of tres stardawg at 12 weeks about a week ago 20171205_190303.jpg
    Super gross smell, chemmy rotten dead odor with a hint of overripe citrus. Tastes very old school. Buddy's thought I sprayed it with something lol and that's only with a 7 day dry

    Well said sir!
    Not much I could add.

    If someone really wants to include the bloom nute in their grow. Try it like this.

    Run the veg nutes for the first 2 weeks after the lighting time change. At week 3, go 50:50 veg and bloom. at week 4, go on 100% bloom and run from there.

    If you get yellowing problems from there.....I might say that the nutrient line is way to P heavy. Hard to say with out knowing the NPK of the line and how it's being fed.

    Any line can work. The trick is to know how to balance the ratio's delivered for the plant, at that stage of growth.

    I don't think anybody should be ashamed of their mistakes made while trying to improve their game. ☺
    besides Mr nice, shit the other plant in my tent is immaculate given the same conditions.
    which really baffles me.

    Yes I’ve run MNS SHIT before. It’s easy on the quicker side of things and sticky as well as stinky. It’s been a couple years. It was good enough for me to pick up 1 gram spring cleaning pack CHEAP

    Hmmm all I can say is I was disappointed but I can’t say it was the genetics. It might have been but it was 1 of the first 5 strains I bought with my first order and I ran them first. So I’m blaming the learning curve.

    My IG buddy spent almost 3 hours on line at the Emerald cup waiting to picking me (and himself) up some dying breed seeds. Got me some freeborn selections as well. Fun year coming up. Mix in AJ sour diesel AJ stardawg and chem D cuts I’ve just received. Mixing them together will be interesting.

    Not sure yet only that he only had 2 and I got them. Unless others sold out before my bud got there. I’ve got grape soda skunk pina and rootbeer bx2 in the vault already. So I guess it’s possible he had more?? Since I didn't want repeats? He’s busy floating around and I believe his buds are being sold at aficinados booth. He grew oil spill and rose Especial this season among others. I don’t know how they hooked up but he didn’t get the jars and white labels until last night. So he’s wore out and I’m not bugging him. Just happy to be on the train.

    I think those were cbd seeds but not for sure. Believe that’s what he told me but man if you ever make any f2s of his stuff I’ll gladly cop some. I want some of his beans bad
