@Eppie02 well whatever your doing seems to be working. What are you using for your water source? Tap/RO/distilled? Are you adding anything like cal mag?
Whoops - i can’t keep track of time and didnt realize i could just look right on the journal LOL - I’m coming up on 3 weeks** not 4 - so yeah she sprouted 2 weeks ago from yesterday!
@TripleB I’m using Trader Joe’s RO water - i haven’t PHed it
@Not2SureYet I’d be interested in any advice on watering as well as it continues to vex me 6 months in.
@Big123 should be around soon. he has this down to a science. He uses x ml of water for so long before he increases it. Watching his grows helped me to stop over watering. I think he only uses some thing like 15 - 30ml when watering around the plant when it is young. It is hard training your brain that when these are tiny. You are more often than not, better to under water as to over water. The reason I point to him is he is in soil too. I am in coco and water a little more often than soil growers
Yes, less is more when they’re little and it comes to water.
I ended up using larger containers than described in 1sr post.
Quick update here - I hadn’t watered her since my last post in the 13th! So 10 days but she showed no sign of being thirsty. Just gave her a drink and she seems to be super happy still!
Question for you all - what’s the best technique to water without getting the bottom leaves wet?? I tried to lift all the leaves up but now she seems a bit off center now??
I have found trying to water slowly helps, looking great
I used jiffy pot as well. Do you recommend breaking up the peat when transplanting to the permanent pot? Thanks
@Eppie02 Slow and with a long spout watering can. That’s how I do it
Wow!! I see some beautiful buds starting to form! Does this mean I’m officially in flowering stage?!
I’m still using a 20:4 on off light cycle, think I should scale back to 18:6? It’s an ILGM Blueberry Autoflower for reference!
Uh oh - think somethings going wrong.
Things I’ve done:
- Put full spectrum light on (bloom and veg together)
- Went from 20:4 light cycle to 17:7
- Watered on 5/23
- Just watered before the photos
Please let me know your thoughts, if this is normal, should I leave those leaves be?
Do I turn it back to veg light? Maybe try just bloom?
You’ll see the last pic the majority looks great still. Just those bottom leaves for now
Hey! Thanks for the tag. Not great at diagnostics yet, but I’m sure someone more experienced will chime in soon.
She’s looking healthy, those lower leaves die as she moves through her cycle. I’m not the best an diagnosing either, but I’ve had my share of problems to learn from. Lol looking at the other leaves I don’t see any of the normal tell tell signs.
I wouldn’t be too worried about 2 browning leaves on the bottom…
Hey @Eppie02! Your lady is looking great. I usually just cut those leaves off. It’s only 2 she won’t mind.
I agree, just chop of the lower leaves. All the others look great. I my self would never be on a 24/0 hour light cycle. It waste a lot of electricity. And I would think you will see a slow down in your growth. I am running a 14/10 and 12/12 in flower. And getting bigger plants with each grow. That is with both autos and photos I also run both switches on fro the time they go into their final pots till the chop. I have tried just the blue. And while it works. It really slowed my plants down here.
Quick update - she’s been doing pretty good still lots of growth and hairs on the buds starting to turn orange!
Here’s some status pics I took yesterday
Is there anything I should be worried about with the tips of the top leaves turning yellow? You can’t really see in the photos, but in real life up close all tips seem to be yellowing??
They’re looking good!
In flower I pushed the nutes on my blueberry autos to the point that the tips burn just a touch. You know that you are right on the edge of feeding enough or too much. Also most of the fan leaves turned yellow and fall off on the blueberry autos so if you see this don’t worry. it is just the plant telling you that it is getting near the end of its life. My autos lolipoped themselves.
