I’m not sure what I did wrong

First time Grower not sure what happened to the one but I started them at the same time thought I did everything the same it should be about three weeks from harvest I think

2nd pic isn’t too bad. The 1st pic is severe nitrogen burn. She’s overfed and should be flushed.


I’m not exactly sure what flushing it means I’m assuming use water and flush out the pot that it’s in ?

I would add a week or two to that based on the number of white pistils with no dark & receding ones.
Are they the same strain or different?

flush that one or two plants out. I think one got a double dose and the 2nd doesn’t really mind. Don’t give up now. You just won’t have a nug on a picture cover

The seeds are auto flower gorilla glue, soil I used Miracle grow all purpose garden mix for outdoor use, in a 5 gallon bucket I use tapwater and miracle grow Plant food, temperature I try to keep in the mid 70s but we did have a cold snap here in Texas and the room I have them in does not have a heat vent but it does have a little Deerborn gas heater built in the wall that I did lite to keep them warm really have no ventilation, In the summertime I do have AC unit with a thermostat to keep the room in the mid 70s For lights I use G8 -240 with a flower booster. As far as the pH I have no clue I am a total beginner Everything was going great until about a week and a half ago

Honestly, im not sure what you could do to help at this point. Miracle Gro is not a recommended soil for cannabis, due the slow release nitrogen that affects the flower stage, as you are seeing now.

Im going to advise you read through some journals of @Hellraiser, tons of amazing information in there. From here on out, stay away from Miracle Grow products when dealing with cannabis. Welcome to the forum!

@Oldguy @kaptain3d

Should @Jamesp be flushing his MG soil or do you have any direction for them now?



If I looked at the right one it says that it feeds for 3 months.
By flushing a pre fertilized soil normally it releases additional fertilizers but in this case I think I’d try to get rid of some of the extra nutes with a good flush.

In a 5 gal pot you’d need approx 15 gal of properly ph’d water run thru to bring your levels back to a reasonable point for your plants.
The yellowed leaves won’t recover.
A digital ph and tds meter are must haves.
Good luck.



Thank you for your help & your time

Thank you for your quick response

On the bright side it looks like you grew a nice sized haul. :+1:
