I am using the HLG 600Rspec using about 400ppfd if my meter is calculated right in a 4 by 5ft room with 4in.ventilation. it’s hot n muggy here so I do have the AC duct open alittle keeping it toward the ballast so humidity is fairly low it is a 100per cent afghan strain I purchased from here and am using fox farms happy frog soil in 5 gal. buckets. I have been using mostly earthworm tea and alaska fish 5/1/1 but have thrown some cal/mag to um recently thinking maybe my light was to intense I have used distilled water since day one and my ph has been between 5.5 and 6 my N always seems to show very low my P a little low but my K very high from first sprout they are just under 6 weeks old any information here will be greatly appreciated I have grown outside for year’s up north but this indoor thing is all new to me…thanks bunches😁

I don’t see any issues. Looks like she could use a TINY bit more N but don’t overdo it.


A drink of epsom salt should green them up. The light you’re using can make the plant require more magnesium. 1/2 tsp of epsom per gallon should do her well.


Ok I do appreciate the help maybe I’m just a little paranoid the tips been getting yellow but they do average about 2 inches a day,I think I need a bigger house :woozy_face:,thank you

Im with :point_up:epsom will do the trick. Pretty girls


Nice set up. You might upgrade ventilation to at least 6" to 8" exhaust. Other than that you’re set nice.


I thank you, it’s comforting knowing I can give a shout out and get good advice on here,it would feel like somebody kicked my dog if I lost my baby’s :face_with_head_bandage:


In soil, and since I too use Happy can offer a suggestion, your pH should be between 5.8-6.8 with 6.5 being your sweet spot.

Could explain a little about my calcium :thinking:I thank you I’m just letting everything soak in to my brain for round 2…hope I have enough room up there :exploding_head: I was just looking at um wondering when I should flip um,I guess only time will tell,but by my 2nd crop I will be more knowledgeable.its a little addicting but is what I missed most after leaving up north,up north I could just throw some clones in some donkey shit and know they were happy


I don’t see any signs of calcium issues. You have a pretty wicked light so it is going to cause the plant to use up more magnesium. Just a little magnesium boost with epsom salt, here and there, will take care of that.
