Hi everyone, I have a friend who started a grow but due to personal issues had to get them out of his garden.
When he handed them over I could see that they have had some topping done and needed some love, I have a 5x5 tent which I am using for the first time and an iPower 600w MH & HPS light - is that sufficient for 6 plants in that space?
Anyway there are 4 Strawberry Fire, 1 Resin Rainbow and 1 Black Sherblato, all photo seeds and fem - never worked with any of these strains before.
Each plant looks like its starting to flower, I’m not sure how many weeks in they are but I’d like to know if I can keep them on an 18/6 and keep vegging them out, or whether it’s too late and I should just let them flower and count myself lucky that this is all free and gifted?
Oof, that plant is in rough shape. Check it for bugs before anything else. If no bugs then you need to check ph of the soil or at least the runoff ph and ppms. I suspect it is out of ph range or has been an outdoor plant that was neglected
There’s not enough bud there to have any rot Bugs should ALWAYS be checked for when getting a plant from someone else, especially if grown outdoors. If it were me, I would toss it. But I also have thousands of seeds I can grow, so it all depends on your situation.
Clones are surprisingly easy! Get some clone gel, make a 45 degree cut, right into the gel from there. I then go into root riot plugs, and under a humidity dome with low light for 18 hours a day. (I use the super sprouter kit that comes with a T5 light). Keep the root riout cubes moist, and in about 14 days, you’ll have roots.
I haven’t had one fail using this method. That said, if I was revegging the clones, I’d adjust the light to 24 hours on, for the first week, at least.
