Hi, i’m a first time grower, ran into some weather problem, that forced me to go from outdoor to indoor when the plant was 15cm tall, i had to use a small 100w full spectrum LED grow light enough for a plant, then added a couple of days later a full spectrum 165w LEDs grow light.
Now the plant is about 56cm tall, 2nd week of flowering. 12/12 light cycle. Plant is about 1.5month old.
thanks for reading so far, any help is appreciated ^^
Hi cristoner, yep transplant asap. When you do this try going to a three gallon container. Do not put the plant any deeper than she already is - so same height in new container 56 cm. make sure she is very well watered during the process. and keep her out of strong light for a day.
Things to consider now
Is she going back outside? If so how does the daylight schedule line up with the inside schedule. She is liable to hermie if not aligned.
Take the base of the plant and and pluck the leaves off that are non beneficial - I see two stems branching off from the main, leave them but everything else pluck in the first 10 cm. You need air to be able to move around all parts of the plant. Including the base.
Using a pair of scissors cut the parts you want to remove about a cm from the stem. You especially don’t want leaves touching the soil.
If your going to stay inside with her apply an bug strategy. If going outside you probably don’t need to worry about it.
Give here a week to recover. This is what I would do.
I’ll see what i can do about the container, because my plant is in a closet, i can’t use a too much bigger pot sadly, i just realised that after i said i would to garrigan :-/ i could but i would need to train the plant to go sideway. Its pbly too late for this?
I don’t think i’m gonna put her bck outside, it has been raining for the last 3 weeks, and the forecast for the next few days aren’t that great im afraid.
What do you recommend for a bug strategy? (sticky paper?)
Hi, You may not have bugs. Going from outside to inside increases the probability. Rain isn’t bad when your in veg, if its not too cold or hot/humid, unfortunately your plants look like they are 3 weeks or so into flower. A tough time to be moving them around.
Next time leave them outside. I grow my plants in Washington state USA. We get a lot of rain. If there is a sustained run of low temps (50’s) with rain then I move them to a dry sunny area but still outside. Often in August we get a week of cold weather. It can wipe out our tomatoes and marijuana. Its a disease called late blight. I cant finish them outside because that is usually late Sept - October and the buds will rot because of temp and rain.
So I usually let them start flowering and through the stretch then bring them inside to finish. This saves me $ and protects my plants.
I have been growing like this for several years after being an inside grower many years.
I say you are best continuing what your doing. I think you have done your best.
If she hermies finish her out and try using the seeds which will all be female. And try again. If she does not hermy then you will get at least something to smoke.
we are all learning, therefore progressing and not losing.
I hope I’m helping you.
Also if anyone knows if this LED diode, is it working or not it seems like its not working but the seller insisted that it IS working and because its a full spectrum LED, its normal that one LED diode looks that way ? I.R? U.V ?
Yes, the one that kind of looks like a black light is probably the UV and the other that doesn’t show any light is probably the far IR, that neither our eyes nor the camera can “see” that part of the light spectrum.
I wasn’t able to change the soil (noob mistake mg soil…), for my tallest plant, beside the new soil when i changed the pot. Dunno how to correct that mistake for the rest of flowering stage though, any though ?other 3 won’t happen again.
