New grower here ๐Ÿ‘‹

New grower here! White widow fems started growing fine now running into an issue. I use distilled water . Occasionally I used tap before knowing to let it sit for 24hrs open to dechlorinate. Yellow spots started this morning.

Welcome! Iโ€™m leaning towards pH with the spots. When you used tap, was it phโ€™ed? Copy, paste and fill out the info below and the growers here will help square you away!!!

  • What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed

  • Soil Type: Soil, coco, mix? Brand?

  • Vessel:

  • PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable):

  • PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable:

  • Indoor or Outdoor:

  • Light system and measurements: Brand, model, height, intensity?

  • Temps Day and Night:

  • Humidity Day and Night:

  • Ventilation system: Yes, No, Size

  • AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier?

  • Co2: Yes or No?

  • What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed ILGM
  • Soil Type: Soil, coco, mix? Brand? Fox farm
  • Vessel: plastic pot
  • PH of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable): never ph balanced
  • PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable:
  • Indoor or Outdoor: indoor
  • Light system and measurements: Brand, model, height, intensity? Ac infinity ion board s33 28 inches 40%
  • Temps Day and Night:80-85
  • Humidity Day and Night: 60%

  • AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier? Humidifier
  • Co2: Yes or No? No

You should be ok since youโ€™re going with distilled now. When using tap water, it has to be pH balanced between 6.3-.8 for soil. Fox Farms. Soils come pretty loaded with nutrients, as well, and some times there can be little hot spots. Seedlings generally donโ€™t need any nutrients at all the first few days, but this is ok. Just continue to water with distilled every couple of days. A few milliliters in a circle a couple inches from the stalk.

When you start mixing nutrients, distilled water can start getting pricey, depending on budget. You can use tap. Like you said, let it sit for a day loosely covered. Then add your nutrients, and adjust pH after. Always make sure tap water is dechlorinated and phโ€™ed, even if giving it by itself.

Hope this helps. Good luck and happy growing!!!

Edit/addโ€ฆ Distilled water, alone, doesnโ€™t need any pH adjustments.
