1st-time grower here. Any advice and wisdom from others is greatly appreciated.
I have four plants right now still in veg. They are about 3 months old. I don’t know too much about any of this stuff and my plants look real sick, so I’m looking for help to keep them alive.
The plants are fed usually every 1-2 days depending on the temp. and soil moisture. They receive the following:
Foxfarm Big Bloom (diluted in 1 gallon of RO water) every other watering
Molasses (diluted in 1 gallon of RO water) given 1x/week
Liquified Kelp (diluted in 1 gallon of RO water) given every 3 weeks
Pure H20 every other watering
They are potted in Rootpouch grow bags (5 gallon). I’m wondering if this size is too small for these plants?
I have some fungus gnats, but not very many. I also put a layer of sand on top of the soil to try to discourage them, but it doesn’t seem to get ride of them completely. I don’t know what is considered too much of an infestation, or if it’s ok to have a few gnats here and there.
For one of my plants, some of the roots seem to be popping out of the soil and are brown which indicates to me some type of fungus issue, but again I’m just guessing.
any help??? Thank you in advance!
