Hi everyone, i am a new grower, but i need so much help right now. I was gifted a sour diesel back in may, so i tried to keep it alive. No luck there, because the person who gave it to me knew nothing at all about it, but the strain. No date when planted, what it was fed, just nothing. So later on about 1 month later, when it was pretty much dead, i found out that it had root rot. Nowwww, i started my own just out of curiosity. Germinated some seeds i just got out of a bag. Out of about 25 seeds i saved, 19 germinated, 3 survived. (I am not good yet😉). Out of the 3, two was doing really well, looks like one is stunted… very very small. My concern now is, they are drooping, and seem to be whithering too. I planted these 2 on 8/22/19, and the lil one 8/30. I thought the 2 bigger ones was doing very well. Now im sooo hurt, because i cant figure out if they are dead, dying, or if i can help them at all.
I am growing indoors, i did create a small closet grow after all the others died. I have fans, humidifier, lights, grow bulbs, i am growing in soil, coco, perlite(mg perlite) my closet be at about 78 to 80 degrees, my humidity is always around 50-60. I took it outside 2 days in a row, but hot days. I purchased a meter that measures moisture, light, ph. My ph always reads around 7.5(is that bad?) I did not feed nutes right off bc i thought the mg soil was feeding it. Then i started seeing the tips was white, then yellowish, then brown, then yellow spotting, and was told it was thrips. I went and bought neem oil and spray for thrips. They still looked ok with a lil droop. The temp here 3 days ago went to 95, i always bring them in right before sunset. But 3 days ago when i checked on them, it looked like thrips like the people told me, so i sprayed the leaves, now they feel papery, dry and look bad. The shinyness is right when i sprayed, now looks like the shrunk, turning brown right at the top where the new growth is drooped bad.
I forgot to mention, 2 seeds germinated in the same pot so i left them, when checking the plant to separate and transplant to a bigger pot, i realized the roots were intertwined. So i left them, it seemed like i could not get them apart. I could not tell if i was over watering, under watering, needed nutes now, i do not know. One grew bigger and started to shade the other. Please i have noo idea whats wrong. I finally got a response back from a youtuber dispensary, they told me i needed to separate, check moisture, ph, light, etc. The meter showed my moisture was good, but still drooping. Once i brought them in, and separated them, i used all new soil, and checked the oil soil again for wetness and its showing dry… in the red. How though.? Im confused. Light was good and ph was 7 now. Drooping is bad, now whithering and looking like its dying. My profile pic is when i thought it was doing good. I took that 5 days ago.
Soo… can anybody help me out? Was it thrips, light burn, heat stress, under/over water? Now that they are separate, they look to be discoloring and feel papery. Do i need nutes now? My perlite is miracle grow and has built in nutes it says, but i mixed up my own soil, as i said earlier. Coco, mg perlite, and regular potting soil. I did that for the sake of compaction of the soil. Can you guys please check out the pics… any questions im ready. I did water them when i separated them this morn, 9/ 26/19 4am. Helpppp!!
pics may be mixed up, i just need help… i just checked them again. They are not looking good. One of them look like it shrunk more than earlier. It lookslike it is dying… . Can it be save please. Sorry its a long post, i do be rambling, i just like to be clear.
