This is my first grow in 20 years and I am excited. I bought some femonized autoflowering Blueberry seeds. My setup is in a closet with 3 LED lights:
One is 300W
One is a strip that is 81W,
One is a strip that is 54W.
I used a 5 gallon bucked with a mix of perilite and soil at about 60-40 to 70-30 of perilite to soil.
Temp varies between 70-80. It mostly stays between 70-73, but I have had times where it went up to 80
Humidity about 40%
pH is between 5.5-7
It’s not pretty but until I can get the time to make it a littler nicer, this will do.
I am at about two weeks in, I think I have to fix the nutrients, but the plant seems to be doing alright
The perilite has some nutrients but I bought some from ILGM to help out.
I will post more as the time goes on.
I have been reading a bunch and I think I found out my problem, nutrient burn. The perilite has some nutrients and I fed it a little nitrogen. I am pretty sure I burned it. I will just switch to plain pH’d water to flush around the roots. Hopefully it will not kill the plant and I just loose out on some buds. I would rather have some than none. Since it is my first auto/fem plant I don’t feel to bad about the progress.
burn is not so bad on the younger leaves. She should be okay. lots of growth going on. each leaf has two smaller growth of leaves next to it.
Update: definitely burned the bottom leaves but the rest is looking good. I tested the soil and NPK. Just water for a while
Latest pic, looks like there has been a good amount of growth.Each node has some sprouts coming off. This is just over 3 weeks
I made a very LED newbie mistake. THey can burn your plant. I did not have this problem with fluorescents. My 300W LED started to burn my leaves. Looked just like nutrient burn, but it was not on all the leaves. It was only on the leaves that were exposed to the LED at certain points of growth. I raised the LED. This should fix the problem.
I super upgraded my grow room. I bought a Vivosun 4’x4’x5’ tent. It is ventilated and charcoal filtered. It is pretty awesome.
Here is the plant
very bushy, curious as to cutting the lower leaves on the next grow:
