Beginning grower needs some help please

I have four blueberry auto flower in none woven 3 gallon bag pots. Two of them are growing in ocean forest potting soil and the other two are growing in fox farm happy frog potting soil. This is an outdoor grow. I need a little help it is my first time growing marijuana but I do believe the ocean forest was to hot of a mix and causing nutrient burn on the two plants that are growing in the ocean forest

Exciter to follow the grow. I sure do love me an outdoor garden. I will pop in from time to time.
When will the plants be going outside? Will you be transplanting again?
Happy growing…

They have been outside from day one I started them in the 3 gallon pots so no stress of transplant but they did take a little longer to sprout but now that they are growing I see new growth every day I will post the pictures of them first starting out two weeks ago

Best advice so far.

3 gallon could be the right size of pot for autos, but If you develop a monster, you’ll want more room for the roots. I solved this problem (you don’t really want to transplant autos) by simply placing the 3 gallon pot into a larger pot,

I just found four leaf hoppers on my plants. Can I spray them with BT at this young of a stage

With the bottle placed over them, what’s your thoughts for cutting squares around the sides?

The bottle was when they was small. I cut them like that for airflow and just so the birds did not get my seedlings if you scroll up you will see them at 2.5 weeks from germination they are at three weeks old now

Ok, keep in mind being that small they will get air exchange if the bottle is just on top of the soil. But if you’re wanting to raise the humidity having the holes will prevent that. A large ziplock can do the same for a larger amount of gas exchange, but also keep humidity up. I used ziplocks for the seedling stage, but I was wanting them to also drain excess humidity to keep mold or mildew down along with helping to wick the medium.

It’s pretty humid in the summer months in Virginia. That’s was not the problem I had when I put the bottles over them. This is outside grow and I have a lot of birds with all the bird feeders my wife has around the house so I got scared! But they are growing good look really healthy.
