Looks to me like they are a bit over watered as I mentioned earlier.

A support ticket filled out is helpful to anyone trying to assist.

Any of you guys have a support ticket handy? I need to save a copy

Yup, we discussed the watering process on another thread.

I figured the support ticket would help establish the grow for the journal and any future issues.

What brand of organic soil are you using? This will be useful info as not all organic soils are suitable for mj growing. I found this out the hard way!

The first thing I see is your ph is to high, in soil you should be putting in at 6.5 Second is if you are getting runoff, then you are over watering. When you say organic soil, what exactly are you using. If it’s something you bought, what brand. If you mixed it yourself what’s in it.

The soil is an organic mix from Home Depot, 1/top soil-1/Potting-0.5/ vermiculite (not in front of the bags at the moment)

I’m planning to pick up Pro-Mix today as I’ve seen others mentioned it was a better source.

For runoff I have only had a small amount, they were transferred two days ago and only watered once, 5 Gallon pits with 4 cups water added around outside edges of transplant.

I can also increase the airflow today to expedite drying to soil though if I can pick up the Pro-Mix I can do another transplant

Water is tap water filtered, then left to sit for 48 hours before use to remove any lingering chlorine and to reach tent temperature.

@Myfriendis410 may be the best one to advise on pro-mix. As far as the organic soil it may not be amended properly for cannibis. But I suspect that the main issue is to much water. Definitely let it dry out, once it gets dryer just slowly water around plant a couple of inches out. You want the roots searching for water, but don’t want them having to search to far. Be sure to ph to 6.5 Some of the more experienced people may have some better advice.

For me, it looks like overwatering… I would just try to have the medium dry a bit more before adding any water… :nerd_face:
And if I was in a hurry to have them in dryer medium, I would just transplant them…

But I am fairly new at troubleshooting… @Covertgrower , @PurpNGold74 , @AfgVet might know better. :wink:

Welcome to the forum @PiratedSoldier

Based on the pics you uploaded I have to agree with @kaptain3d. Let them dry out a bit. You want soil to dry out before watering again. Test the moisture by feeling the weight of the vessel, dry vs wet, or stick you finger and inch of so deep in the medium. Still wet? Don’t water.

You can start your own thread, journal. Then members can help you out without cluttering Debbies thread

I would be surprised if this isn’t overwatering. Soil looks almost like mud. As others have stated, definitely let her dry out before watering again! I personally recommend watering till you get a good amount of runoff, this helps get rid of any build up in the soil.

Nothing wrong with watering to runoff with a fully established plant, but these girls are to small. Need to allow those roots to spread before that much water.

To each their own dude. I feel like letting the roots find their water makes more sense.
