Lack of water, possible nute deficiency,need advice

Autoflower supermox seeds, planted march 15th.
Fox farm ocean forest soil. General organics nutes, i have entire “go box” kit.

Due to unfortunate circumstance i was unablento water plants for 5 days. Were Completely dry and had some wilting and yellowing Upon returning i did 2 full strength nutrients enriched waterings with my 1 gallon watering can. Then topped with 2 more gallons of just PhD water the next day to make sure the soil was fully soaked.
I pulled the lower fan leaves that were completely dead. Heres where i stand 3 day after my return. They do seem to be improcing but somenofnthe yellowing remains.

Can anyone help identify if i need more corrective action? Also, whats a good nutrient feelingnshcedule for these plants, 5 of which are in 2 gallon pots, the large rear left is in 3 gal. (Ill def be doing all 3g pots next grow)

@Dclark just copy it and save it on ur phone or whatever you use. i have it on my Samsung notes

Hello and welcome. There should be a feeding schedule on your nutes. it is best to follow that. Pics would help and answering the questions in support ticket
will help everyone know what your grow
process is.

@Dclark I have the Support ticket bookmarked.

Due to unfortunate circumstance i was unable to water plants for 5 days. They were Completely dry and had some wilting and yellowing. Upon returning i did 2 full strength nutrients enriched waterings with my 1 gallon watering can. Then topped with 2 more gallons of just Ph-d (6.5) water the next day to make sure the soil was fully soaked. I pulled the lower fan leaves that were completely dead. Heres where i stand 3 day after my return. They do seem to be improving but some of the yellowing remains. Can anyone help identify if i need more corrective action?

Also, whats a good nutrient feeding scheduled for these plants, 5 of which are in 2 gallon pots, the large rear left is in 3 gal.
(SIDE NOTE - Ill def be doing all 3g pots next auto

I am just a newbie so I’m not 100% on this but you want to give autofowlers less nutes than recommended by the nute bottle I give mine 1/2 strength of the regiment They sprouted mar1 and mar9


And I only water them 1/2 gal every morning and alternate nutes one day the ph water the next they are autos from Ilgm gorilla glue and girl scout cookies

I give full strength after stepping up the amount. What I mean is I start with 1/4 strength. Then the following week 1/4 to 1/2. Then after about 30 days aka flowering I ramp it to full stength.

Now if I am depleting the nutrients out of a fresh bag I wait 6 weeks or so before adding nutrients. See above as I slowly step them into the nutrients.

I do the same with Autos and Photos.

The yellowing is also leading me to beleive nutrients deficiencies, mainly nitrogen.

Have you tested your run off TDS and PH? I’ve found that most issues can be PH or lack of run off that creates root zone problems.

Did you do a full strength feeding without prior run off testing to check the existing PPMs and PH? It’s a crap shoot to feed without knowing what your medium PPMs are :love_you_gesture:

Home depot had 36" or larger Cheap “trays” in water heater section and double priced with double thickness in the shower section.

As mentioned, ph is 6.5 when watering.
Tds about 1500 when full strength nutrient watering. I checked runoff and it was 1800.

Im thinking of doing nutes every other watering.

Idk why the comments about trays, thats not whats being asked lol
