Growing problems/ issues

Continuing the discussion from Welcome to the Grow Support category:

I purchased your white widow seeds and germainated them the way you instructed. This is my first time growing, but only 3 of the 10 seeds i attempted to germinate actually sprouted something. So i used the three that sprouted and started them in some potting soil inside the house, when they reached about 6 inches in height i replanted them in my garden. Things seemed ok water everyday fertilize once a week and they grew, 2 seemed to be the same but one was looking way different than the other 2. So the issue i have is that theyve been in the ground since june 1st and they seemed to have stopped growing, only about 18 inches high and the leaves on 2 of the paints have turned yellowish. I figured they would be much bigger than what I have and they appear to be dying despite all the care to try to save them. Help?

Hi, any issues with seed germination need to ne reported to the seed shop. From their page select “contact us” then fill out form and they should get back to you fairly quickly. As long as it’s not over a weekend anyway.

Your plants have likely stopped growing because they have transitioned to flower. This is about time of year you’ll see them flower and typical for the plants to be done gaining in height once flowering. As such, not much you can do about that now. It would have been better to reach out in july where you could have taken action. Outdoors your plants should have plenty of energy from the sun to grow big unless you planted in the shade or had poor weather conditions. If that wasn’t the case, there was an issue with plant health. This could have been anything from damaging root system during transplant, improper soil, improper ph, nutrients, bugs, temperature, mechanical damage, or literally several other things.

If you provide detailed response to support ticket and some pictures we may be able to find some of your potential issues.


What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed (photo or auto)

  • Age of Plant: 16 weeks
    -Method: Indoor Seedling Growth, then outdoor since week 8
    -Vessels: ceramic pots, then outdoor in fenced garden
    -Current Light Schedule: standard NY State Summer Light
    -Temps; varies, but between 95 at 3pm and 65 at nifht
    -Humidity; unsure
    -Ventilation system; No
    -Co2; No

So this is my first attempt at growing. I wanted to just see if I could get them grown and with any amount of smokable final product. These are feminized cheese seeds. We planted seedlings on April 29th this year, and have had them planted all outdoors since week 8. I just wanted to make sure I don’t have any herms. I know at this stage it can happen, and these seeds have not used any nutrients, we have just used potting soil and then the soil in our garden. I checked every plant and saw no male balls, but just wanted to make absolutely sure there are no herms in these plants. From what I saw every single bud had this same density and look to it. I know to look for “bananas” and even lime green or yellow shoots that woudl signify herm growth, but have seen none.

Just wanted to be absolutely sure I’m not missing anything!


Hello! First time growing and I got some Bruce Banner Autoflower seeds. I am noticing that the leaves are starting to look strange and am wondering if I am doing anything wrong. We are about 2 weeks in at this point and I really don’t wanna mess up the beginning stages. Thanks!

I started my seeds 96 hours ago and only 2 out of 5 seeds have spouted.

They were in a plastic container folded in a paper towel with a little extra water. It was placed in a very dark cabinet for 72 hours.

When i went to plant them, only one had sprouted. I put it back for another 24 hours and now have two seeds that sprouted.

Any suggestions on why the other three have sprouted? Or what i can do to get them growing?
