I just started my first grow. Yow! Having problems with stunted growth and pale leaves. These are just over 1 week old.
Girl Scout Cookie
White Widow that really never got off the ground
Strain; Girl Scout Cookies, White Widow Auto
Soil in pots, Hydroponic, or Coco? Coco Loco with Kind Soil in solo cups will be transplanted into 3 gal grow bags
System type? Soil
PH of runoff or solution in reservoir? Have been using distilled water.
What is strength of nutrient mix? EC, or TDS
Indoor or Outdoor - indoor, 4 x 2 x 6 tent
Light system, size? Mars Hydro Reflector 720 watts LED moved from T5 last night.
Temps; Day, Night 71 degrees
Humidity; Day, Night now 70% since putting in the grow tent. Before about 35%
Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size - not set up yet. Will be Phresh filter, AC Infinity 6 in fan
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,: humidifier
Started grow on 2/27, 5 seeds in distilled water with hydrogen peroxide. All five popped.
Put in solo cups - clear with holes, red over. plastic wrap over the top.
Misted wrap 2 to 3x per day.
3/7 put three eyedroppers full around each plant.
3/8 moved to grow tent and Mars LED light
3/9 no growth and one of the White Widows has pale leaves. No roots visible on any of them in the clear solo cup.
Just used an Jellas ph tester and it showed 8.8 - compared it to the drop method and it shows 8.8 as well. I guess I thought distilled water would be the right ph. Hand smacks head.
Here’s my proposed plan:
Raise the temp by putting a space heater outside the tent (nervous about it tipping over inside the tent) and aim it at the lower intake vent.
Adjust the ph by using PH Down or a natural re lemon juice or vinegar. I have ordered Earth Juice.
What do you think? @SilentHippie I am tagging you because you seem to have the most Kind Soil experience!
Thank you for any and all advice!
