Hey everyone! I’ve been using this site for a lot of helpful info on my first grow so I figured I might as well join! Glad to be here!
Quick background info…I’m an experienced tomato grower among other vegetables and now that I’m working from home I needed something to offset the cabin fever. Why not try growing something I love?! A buddy gave me a few Northern Lights seeds in late July… I’ve been growing under 4 T5HO54 bulbs throughout veg…then…I noticed the depot had 26w GE HOLED 4K lights for 5.00 each on clearance. Plants actually responded better to these over the fluorescent throughout the rest of veg…Decided to switch to a vspectra p2500 at week 2 flower. Eased them to 16" at w4 up until now heading into week 6. Earlier this week they started to get really yellow even though my ph has been 6.5-6.8 . Did a soil test testing NPK amounts…N was very low with both…PK optimal. Work being slow I decided to try the most cost effective route initially with pretty much soil and nutes I already have. Kellog soil with amendments (pretty much same ingredients as ffo) and jacks all purpose and bloom. I hit em with a worm tea on Thursday and they seem to have responded quite well so far…leaves getting greener and overall bud health looking better. My road block is that I’ve checked ph at different areas of the soil at root level in my 5 g bags…there are major shifts in some areas vs others. 4.8 up to 6.8. Should I just let the tea do it’s thing and back off? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Being a noob I should’ve checked all over from the beginning!
