First time grow, any recommendations at this point

Fed her nutes for the first time a couple days ago, went with fox farm and work castings through first 4 weeks. She’s starting to flower, and I’m thinking some fan leaves need to go and also maybe some LST. GG4 auto flower from ILGM.

I should say I did top her around week 3, and then those little holes started at the top. Checked under leafs for critters and didn’t see anything.


Looks like the holes maybe damage from soft leaves during the topping?

After the feed, did you readjust pH?

Looks a tad yellow. Could be the grow lights tho

I’ve been noticing the LED I have makes it look more yellow than green. When I pull it out of the light it looks pretty good, there is some yellowing on the bottom leafs that aren’t getting much light. I don’t have any meters yet still waiting on them in the mail.

Try to pull them out the grow room and get a picture under natural light when you can

I assume you are using a fox farm soil too. Happy frog? Ocean forest?
Once you get into flower with fox farm nutrients adding calmag is usually necessary.
You try to get most of the LST done before flower onset. However, sometimes that’s difficult with autos because you never know when they go. 28 to 35 days is not unusual. You can try to bend and tie down the two main stems from topping. Let the side branches catch up. Or tie them off if taller than the center. Don’t beat them up too much. There is no recovery time with autos.
You can take off the discolored leaves on the bottom.

I will get all that info after work, but yes it was ocean forest with a tiny bit of happy frog. Bought the wrong bag of ocean forest online haha! I probably won’t mess with it this time since it’s starting to flower. I have a microscope coming and tools to measure pH. Will have those numbers shortly
