On day 10 in soil with 3 WW autos, all are acting different. 3 gallon fabric pots straight from germination, soil (EcoScraps organic no fertilizer), no nutrients given yet, light about 32" from top of plants (1.5-2" tall), had the first small watering yesterday versus a spray. Ph water at 6.5 to the best of my meter knowledge and calibration. Had lights on 24/0 but switched to 20/4 once saw leaves yellowing. Have good humidity and temp control. Pic 1 plant 1 yellowing leaves, pic 2 plant 2 slightly less yellow but leaves curling up, pic 3 plant 3 looks great. Pic 4 from top clockwise plants 1 (temp/hum sensor), 2, 3.
They look normal to me.
Agree with above. New growth generally appears somewhat yellowish. You can give them some Superthrive at this stage with no harm but don’t nute em yet. Superthrive is vitamin B1 kelp etc use 3ml per 20 ozs of water if you choose to do so.
Thanks, just being paranoid I guess. Know a good strain for that?!?!
I agree with @MattyBear
They look ok to me
Thanks, I didnt expect to see yellowish. It’s hard to get a good shot of plant 2, but that one is particularly bothering me, most noticable on the right leaf, I’ve seen other threads references to the look being “taco” looking. Thanks for easing my mind
Started seeing some brown spots on the lower leafs on 1 of the 3. Being a first timer, I think I’m realizing what my first mistake has been 2 weeks in but dont think this is the cause yet. I was so focused finding some soil with no nutirents I got potting mix, with no soil to mix it with. Only thing I found at the large box store “EcoScrape.” What I’m seeing is it collapes slightly when watering, my mind says some root damage is easily to occur. Maybe im just overthinking that.
But the brown spots are what todays worries are. I noticed it drooping, im guessing it was thirsty. They got a 1/4 of the recommended nutes what from the manufacturer recommends (general hydro flora series) 5 days ago, the brown spots appeared this morning. With the exception of 5 days ago, all watering including today has been PH’d water at 6.5, they got about 1 1/4 cup. Any thoughts @MattyBear, @Countryboyjvd1971, @zsitchin, @OldSchoolGrower
It looks hungry! I’d feed at least half strength next time. Ph is in check too, correct?
If your referring to the water PH they get, yes. I get it down to 6.5. Dont trust my $15 ph pen, so I keep a calibration solution mixed and check it before each use. @MattyBear
Thanks @MattyBear, I’ll increase my feed on next watering.
Give em’ some cal/mag if none on hand, give em’ some Epsom salt. 1 tsp per gallon…
How did you like this soil? Is it a vegan water only soil?
