Feeding on a 2 to 3 day basis average of 500ml each feed

Only 9 inches tall but ? I know the light setup isn’t much but are they doing ok for the age ect ?

Any advice would be helpful cheers lads


Welcome to the forum buddy
You’ll probably want to add a few more lights more the better in flower
The autis will grow under any light schedule but will still need that extra light to produce dense buds
Cfls are better suited for veg imo
You can buy a few inexpensive leds bulbs at the local box hardware store
Your looking for something in the 2700k light spectrum fir flower and 4700 fir veg
The have a few bulbs that you can change color spectrum as well and get both flower and veg in same led bulb
Your looking for 50 watts per square foot of canopy fyi
The firls look good tho general rule of thumb @Chriso
Happy growing :v:️CB :cowboy_hat_face:


@Countryboyjvd1971 has given you good advice. More light of the proper spectrum is going to be necessary to get any kind of yield from your plants IMO. @dbrn32 is our lighting guru and may be able to offer some wisdom.

All in all your plants look good.

Ph for coco is 5.5 to 5.8 and this will inevitably cause a nutrient lockout eventually if you don’t start watering at the correct ph.

You should look at the water you are using and an addition of cal mag may be needed as coco tends to require it if your municipal water is short on calcium and magnesium.

Tag any of us with the @ sign to get our attention. John @Countryboyjvd1971 is a soil less grower as am I.


@Myfriendis410 @Countryboyjvd1971 I noticed some spotting on the leaves in the last pic. could that b from ph problems ?

Absolutely! That could be the first sign of ph issues.


@Gonnatry2 yes sir your on point
It actually pretty noticeable once i looked at pictures blown up
With coco tour pg should be around 5.8 as well @Chriso
@Myfriendis410 is a coco guy i run promix BX myself
