Help please, first time growing

Hello, this is my first time growing so bare with me please. I have a couple plants that are in veg state and the center of all the new growth is a brighter green then the rest of the plant. Just making sure this is a normal occurance. I have attached a couple pictures. I know you can’t tell the shades of green under the light. If you need more natural light to tell please let me know. Thank you in advance!

It’s hard to tell with your purple lights but generally speaking, new growth will be slightly lighter and green up as it matures.


Thank you silenthippie! I attached a better picture without the light.

Another question for any more experienced than me. The plants are same strain, same nutrients, same lights, same everything. What’s with the one growing so wide and out of control looking and the other growing very nice and proper looking?

Different phenotypes. Best analogy is if you have 2 children, they aren’t identical. Your plants will display different characteristics also.


Solid advice given @SilentHippie
Plants look great @Fireman92 keep
Doing what your doing it working
Just remember to
Maintain the soil ph between 6.3 - 6.8 and youll be golden
Welcome to the forum as well
Happy growing :v:️CB


@countryboyjvd1971 what have you found is the best/easiest way to check PH levels. And thank you to everyone for the help.

Using a digital ph meter is best

Heres one many use on the forum with good results it not the cheapest but will seeve you well for years

They have cheap ones too but most of us have found you get what you pay for
They need to constantly be calibrated

Ph up and down is best way to adjust ph levels as well

A inexpensive tds meter is a must have also
Here a inexpensive one

Hello all, wanted to post an update. Plants are growing wonderfully still just topped them again today. Have another question though. The plants seem to have some yellowing in the center of some of the leaves as you can see in the picture. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you have a sulphur deficiency. What is your Ph?

@raustin my ph is inbetween 5.5 and 6

Are you in hydro?

If you’re in soil you’re Ph is way off. It needs to be between 6.3 and 6.8. Raise your Ph and you should be able to get rid of this nute lock.
