So I obviously am new, and did not know about the nutrient thing, I will not feed them again for quite some time.
On ph, all I gave in the beginning was the distilled water, the very fist time I Ph’d my water, was when the comeback kid was very very tiny… like 3 days in? Found out later it was a water thing.
It was 5.8 then, and each time that I have checked it out since it’s been basically the same.
So, what should be my solution for now?
Slurry test to find out about ppm and ph?
Then, let them dry out?
I guess, which is more damaging, the overwatering or the potential ph issues plus nutrients too hot?
Good deal! Walking the ‘is she still wet line’ is definitely something u learn to judge for urself.
Id go in at around 6.7-6.8 and hope it slowly trends further upward.
2-3 days isnt bad. Just be certain you’re allowing it to get somewhat dry. U dont want them bone dry, but the pot gets a good deal lighter. They should be able to take a thorough soil drenching, so dont be too worried about soaking the entire pot
Sounds like a good idea. U never want to adjust too many things at once, makes it hard to pinpoint if something else goes wrong.
What type of soil again?
Typically FF soils come with about 2000-3000 ppms worth of goodies. Around week 5-6 it should be depleting pretty good. If your runoffs go under 800~? Ur good to go feed wise. Just do as u did and keep it low (1/4-1/2 strength tops). And pH it properly.
A telltale that she’s hungry will be yellowing lower leaves (Nitrogen), random brown spots popping up on leaves (Calcium), or yellow boxes inside the veins of leaves (Magnesium).
Dude, I love photography right, I can’t WAIT for some flowers to take pics of
For some reason didn’t see this when I first read it.
Thanks for the terminology.
Is there a “terminology glossary” here?
I typically like to talk with precision, but given the nature of this stuff, it’s kinda hard to find the actual terms for stuff, because there is usually some slang or jargon that is used, and it is not necessarily consistent.
Can’t let them sit in run off, you’ll end up with root rot and nutrient lockout, and then you’ll get the pleasure of flushing a bunch. I go nutes every other watering starting at about 5 weeks in Ocean forest, and ALWAYS water until I get good runoff, usually 1 gallon in my 3g fabric pots is enough. That way any extra salts wash out and leave the media. I wait until they lay over like they’re dying before I water them, too. So far, it’s worked out well. Going into third week of flower Monday.
I think I’m being a bit hard on myself, I’ve been kinda kickin myself for the mistakes, but with objectice assesment, I’ts not too bad. 2/4 are quite healthy, the other 2 are a solid C+. And I’ve learned such a massive amount from my mistakes, that my next grow will surely be better.
I think it was
They seem to be much perkier this afternoon.
I’m gonna give it another day or so, then I’m going to do a gentle flush on em, like you suggested, with the PH’d water.
