Good Morning all! First time grower here,;
Strain; WW autoflower, 6 weeks in the dirt, going into week 3 of flower 19" tall.
Lighting; HLG 300L Rspec, 29" above canopy, 20/4.
Medium; Fabric smart pots with FFOF
Environment; Lights on, 81°F/48% RH; Lights off 74°F/44%RH in a 3x3x6 tent.
Feeding every 6 days(FF trio) with plain water in between.
Part 1; is this early signs of nute burn/deficiency?? If so which one and how can I fix it?? also is it normal for some of the trichs to start turning amber this early??
Do a soil slurry sample (YouTube), get a good sample from below the surface. And use distilled water!
Look at the ph, is it within range? 6.3-6.7?
If not flush it, you have to much nutrient salt built up and you need to flush, flush and run water through it u til your run off ppm is 300ppm roughly then mix up a new fresh Full feed as per what week your in based on your nutrient chart, PH it to 6.5 and feed it to 20% run off right after the flush.
Then let it be and don’t water till its pot is light in weight.
If ph smaple is fine:
Then take tha tds/ppm and compare it to where your meant to be…
Are you close? If your way to high then flush it a bit until your in range.
In the future I would not recommend doing this. Nutrient burn (in your case) has only damaged a small portion of the leaf tip, however the remaining green portion of the leaf is still fully capable of doing what the plant needs it to do i.e. photosynthesize, transpire, etc. If you can’t bare to look at the dead tips of the leaves simply trim the dead parts off with scissors and leave the rest of the leaf on the plant to continue helping the plant. After all the leaves are your plants solar panels. Branches and buds however are not. In regards to the bottom growth I have always followed the 1/3 rule that the bottom 1/3 of the plant doesn’t produce enough quality material to be worth allowing to stay on the plant and grow flowers. YouTube lollipoping and watch some of the more experienced growers and how they do it. Some people massacre their plants and that’s not the point of lollipopping. Mr. Canuck (Mr. Canuck’s Grow is his channel on YT) has several videos on how to properly do this and he is a top notch grower. Best of luck and I think if you follow the directions in the previous post about checking ph and ppm’s you’ll do just fine. Your plant is a beauty
@MidwestGuy , @JohnyHempSeed@Newt UPDATE/Part 2; is it just me, or are my trichomes(long white hairs) a little bit too amber/brown for only being 2 weeks into flowering?? I thought ambering wasn’t supposed to happen until harvest??
So it’s normal for the pistols to be that color? They were all white like 3 days ago, now they’re half red/orange… is that normal for ww auto? What stage will come next?? I’ve already started seeing calyx’s starting to swell… what should I be expecting for the next steps?
