Hidy-ho! My plants are stressed, and have been waiting a week for transplant supplies to show. So I’ll get right to to the biz of asking questions since I should really give them some help today. I just don’t know in which order to proceed.
Big question for today’s plan of action:
Should I stabilize pH where they live first, then transplant, then rest, then pH correct and feed? Transplant now, then rest, then… ?
-8 bag seed, indica & indica/sativa strains
- plopped in soil to sprout Dec 1, 2021
*5 gal Bucket x1
* PH of hydro water 7.5 (too high)
* PPM 341 (-23 from yesterday)
* EC 683 (-38 from yesterday)
-Soil- just random old potting soil
*5 gal air pot
*5 gal grow bags
*pH and fertility -no data
- Light system- started with 2 octopus LED, then 3 grow bulbs GE BR 30 LED, 12-31-20 Vivosun 1000 LED at 23” from soil plant canopy, 17” from Hydro plant canopy
*Night 69-74F at plant canopy height.
*Day 24-96% (yikes)
- Ventilation system not installed yet
- prop fan moving air around
- AC: Winter in Siberia = N/A
- Humidifier: small and needed in dry climate
- De-humidifier: No
- Co2: No
Transplanted 4 starts into hydro deep water
- 3 gals start water:
- Distilled water
- pH 8.35 down to 6.10
- 3/4 tsp Micro
- 3/4 tsp Grow
- 6ml Hydroguard
This past week I had no accurate pH, so I held off watering or feeding. The past 48 hours they started really showing signs of stress. I have Happy Frog soil, pots, GH nutes, pH/EC/PPM testers.
This is what I woke up to this morning- a soggy humidifier placement fail overnight. The leaves just crumped. Probably some nitrogen deficiency in the hydro water.
This was 48 hrs ago:
I nerd out on the data tracking, so let me know if more info/pics needed. I’m also an arborist and have some terminology of nodes, plant biology, etc.
So back to my question for today: In what order should I transplant, correct pH, feed, rest, etc?
Thanks a heap!!
