I think we have just what you need!

ok then a 600 watt light … And that was my guess.

My 300 watt led light draws about 140 watts. Remember that cfl and led lights quite commonly use equivalent ratings on them so you know about how bright they are compared to incandescent lights.

Here is a pretty easy to follow topic on lighting if you’d like to see how much goes into this :smiley:

And a big thanks to Al for providing this info! @Niala

Here’s a chart for LED lights, it’s for equivalent watt, so if your LED light is 300W follow the chart for it, it’s not made for actual or real draw and it’s an approximation, that clarify, here it is :

120 W to 180W ~1.5 feet
180W to 300W ~2.0 feet
300W to 600W ~2.5 feet
600W to 1200W ~3.0 feet
1200W to 2000W ~3.5 feet

Hoping that’s helping as many as fellow growers possible

One caveat. These are recommended settings and not exact works perfect numbers for everyone all the time. I would call these proper distances in Veg. One you go into flower you may find your girls getting a bit closer to your lights. Just keep an eye on them for bleaching and you should be fine. (or SCROG / LST them in advance to keep them at the consistent height)

here are the girls today. Can anyone tell me what that is in the second pic the leaf is curling weird and their are 2 rust colored spots. Sorry about the pics they are taken with my phone. I was misting the plant this morning and noticed it. some more info I lowered the lights yesterday is that some kind of led light burn? I moved them back up to where they were after i saw that.

I had lowered them before I saw the good post about lights…lol anyways im not sure how to tag the ppl who know what that is or id have done it. Don’t want to just assume it was caused by moving the lights when i rly have no clue.

Here’s one of the girls at 25 days from sprout now.

since this is my first grow I might just let them grow naturally I have looked into lst but the plants are so compact I can’t quite figure out what I’m supposed to bend where so might just let them be lol. I’ll learn to do that for next grow I think.


all you do is through the @ in front of the user you want to tag @MysterA

Saw what you posted this morning in the garden and you should take a pic or two and post it here so we can take a look along with you!

Here is my grow journal!

Looking at that leaf, it looks like food water got splashed on it. Especially when they are thirsty, leaves suck up any water that touches them and if there are nutes in it they will get burnt by it. Other things that can cause that are touching the soil when drooping causing it to get watered on.

Ok @MysterA I’m here thanks to @bob31 he link your thread to his
Now to answer your question some plant are just greedier then others water nutes etc they are all a little different and should be treated as individuals IMO
There’s a lot going on in the forum so it takes a little time for us to find stuff sometimes tagging is best way to get people to see what’s up
The pics look good to me what is your concern?
I see one tip with a little but think @Stomper might be on track

Maybe, I didn’t think I was splashing last water but did have a little cal mag and ff big bloom in the water. Of course the first time I add anything id find a way to burn a tip lol…Thanks for looking guys.

the last solo pic the tips on that top flower and the one below it are a very light green not like that on the other plants and ive read that thats the first sign of a nute burn and thats the only plant with the lighter tips but idk

how old from seed are they?

36 from seed 34 from sprout

“I think” you’re too early for nutrients for FFOF.

FFOF will carry you at least a few more weeks

I would just go with pH water for another couple of weeks. I’m about two weeks into flower growing an AK47 Auto and I still don’t need nutrients…

And then you want to start out with about 1/4 of the recommended and only add nutrients every other watering. The best way to check all of that is with a tds meter so you can track your ppm in and out so you are using nutrients only when needed!

okay so i have 2 plants that are considerably taller than the other 3 right now (both 19 inches) 1 plant is only 11 and the other 2 are around 14 so i moved the two tall ones next 2 each other and moved the one light up a few inches. Tent looks a lil goofy now but it is what it is. ill upload a pic later. Looks like the plants are different ages now but they are all the same Sorry about the bad lighting.

38 days from sprout Now when you guys water do u wait for your meter to say dry? because mine says dry + so im going to give it until tomorrow?.

couple things ph looks ok but no nutes last 2 waterings plant is 41 days from sprout and only see it on some of the upper growth.



Calcium gets locked out of soil growing at ph levels of 2.0- 6.4
Calcium is absorbed best in soil at a ph level of 6.5-9.1 (Wouldn’t recommend having a ph of over 7.0 in soil) anything out of the ranges listed will contribute to a
Calcium Deficiency.

Hydro and Soil less Mediums

Calcium gets locked out of Hydro and Soil less Mediums at ph levels of 2.0- 5.3
Calcium is absorbed best in Hydro and Soil less Mediums at ph levels of 5.4-5.8 (Wouldn’t recommend having a ph over 6.5 in hydro and soil less mediums.) Best range for hydro and soil less mediums is 5.0 to 6.0. Anything out of the ranges listed will contribute to a Calcium Deficiency.

Solution to fixing a Calcium deficiency
To fix a calcium deficiency you can treat by foliar feeding with one teaspoon of dolomite lime or Garden lime per quart of water, Or Any Chemical/Organic nutrients that have Calcium in them will fix a Calcium deficiency. (Only mixing at ½ strength when using chemical nutrients or it will cause nutrient burn!)
Or you can take crushed up dolomite lime or garden lime in a gallon of water and water it in the soil. 1 to 2 teaspoons per gallon of water, which will be slow acting. Garden Gypsum, which is medium absorption. Limestone, which is medium absorption, Rock Phosphate and Animal wastes which are both medium/slow absorption. Note: Caution when using gypsum to an already acid soil (pH that is less than 5.5) can have a very bad effect on different types of plants by effecting the absorption of soil aluminum, which is poison to plant roots.

Now if you added to much chemical nutrients and or organics, (which is hard to burn your plants when using organics) you need to flush the soil with plain water. You need to use 2 times as much water as the size of the pot, for example: If you have a 5 gallon pot and need to flush it, you need to use 10 gallons of water to rinse out the soil good enough to get rid of excessive nutrients.
