These are 2 plants:
Choco skunk auto LST on left
Northern lights auto on right
5 weeks 3 days in soil
3 gallon pots
Water about every 3 or 4 days (when soil is dry and pot is light)
Fox farm ocean forest soil
RO water with minimal ILGM nutes
As you can see the Northern Lights is drooping badly. I’ve been growing autos for a year now, and never over watered.
Please help me figure this out. Is she root bound?
Curious what size pot the big plant is in? I wonder if it is root bound. The pot looks a bit small to me. Just a thought.
I was gonna say the same thing, though he says 3 gallon pot above. Looks smaller than a 3 to me
You are correct sir. And yes, it curves inwards as it goes down.
It is a 3 gallon pot. So root bound huh?
I guess I need a 5 gallon pot. Never had this issue with any autos in a 3 gallon pot. And I’ve never had to transplant…probably going to need some help on doing that.
Last water/feed the drooping NL was at 6.6
A little high but I didn’t think that would be an issue.
I wouldn’t jump to that yet. Let some others give suggestions. It just caught my eye. People use 3-gal, I prefer 5 but that doesn’t mean 3 is wrong.
PH 6.6 is fine.
Also humidity stays from 45% to 70%
What does 3 days in soil mean? Where were they before? Sorry If I misread.
Hahaha…it says 5 weeks 3 days in soil
LOL, I knew that was strange. I thought 5 weeks old but only 3 days in soil. I was like wt%?
Testimony ILGM White Widow is good!
(That cheered me up a bit, got me to laugh for the first time today! )
That answers my next question!! Haha
Hey guys, i’m going to transplant into the 5 gallon pot. Do I Kinda break up the root ball when I pull it out of the old pot? Or do I just take it from the one pot and put it in the other?
Mine had droopy leaves once and she just needed watering and then some light, I’m trying a 3 gallon at the moment for my goldy so I hope they are OK, best of luck to you
It can be definitely root bound being a late flower sativa grow big roots in my opinion!
I took the drooping lady from the 3 gallon pot and put her in a 5 gallon pot last night. She’s showing some signs of recovery; the leaves are perking a little.
I’ll post some pics in a day or two.
Thanks everyone for your help. ILGM!
13 days after last post and this big girl is happy as can be.
She’s at 22-1/2 inches tall and almost the same in width.
It took a few days after the transplant from 3 gallon to 5 gallon pot but she quickly started recovering.
She’s been in this pose for about a week now.
Started back at half dose ILGM nutes and now she’s taking in full dosage.
Thanks to everyone that responded and took time to help. I now know these Northern Lights can get big and demand more room for roots.
1st pic is the recovered Northern Lights at 7 weeks 3 days from first true set of leaves.
The next pics are of a Choco Skunk auto LST that I started at the same time as the NL! Harvested and began cure about a week ago.
Choco Skunk auto LST I started same time as Northern Lights above. Dry weight after harvest 1.5 oz.
@Jpositive Great job great looking plants I’ve also always use 3 gallon on my autos she’s a big girl just needed more room
