Hey guys wondering whats the best soil to start with ive been using promix hp under a 600w hps in a 5gal pot not sure if thats a good choice need some advise. Ran into a few problems leafs fold down, the tips curl also I thought maby over watering let it dry for a weeks still looks the same watered it noting changed also the leafs felt rough then a few days later super soft had a orange spot on 1 big leaf not sure whats going on i use pure blend pro mixed with distilled water not sure what it can be temp levels hit 85 to 90F wondering if that can also be a reason Any help? Plant is almost 2 Month old
Pics in natural light would help a bit if you could.
And welcome to ILGM.
I appreciate it An these pics are the best i can get lol i just transfered that plant into a big bin not sure if that was a smart idea the root were getting to big for the pot
The transplant shouldn’t have caused the droop like that.
Have you been checking the ph and ppm of the feed /water ?
The higher heat will make the leaves curl a bit and feel rough to the touch. Let me tag a couple folks.
@Arrow is around tonite. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks for the help Ive been trying to keeping the ph at 6-6.5 i was thinking should i flush it out an see if it would help or not im brand new to this an not sure what ppm means lol i water maby ever 4 days but plant always looks like that not sure what im doing wrong i might go buy some other nutrients an try some out
I agree with @Oldguy sounds a bit like a pH issue. I didn’t see you mention what pH you had?
@Oldguy…how are you my friend…hope all is well with you…thanks for the tag, I have some time to kill …Joker looks like you have VPD issues and a light (looks like HPS) that is too close to the plant ?..give us more info…
With the pro mix you should be in the 5.8-6.2 ph range for your feed and water mixes.
And @Arrow. One of those can’t sleep moments brother Alarm in another couple hours.
Maximum reply’s reached on my other account since I’m new lol but it could be the hps light I just raised it a lot higher I leave it on 400watt to keep temperature down
Wow I never never never knew that thank you a lot for the heads up
There you go brother…that should also then sort out your VPD issues…
If you don’t mind me asking what is vpd
Here you go brother…its a chart showing the relation between temperature and humidity, to gain optimal growth…everything has a sweet spot…plants as well. If you take your first pics you will see serious canoeing of the leaves, and the leaf edges are discoloured, that’s how I knew you have a serious light right above that plant…the rest falls in place after that…
Oh and by the way, welcome to the forum, lots of growers will help…ask away…
What’s the feed schedule looking like?
How much water did you put in? How much water came out of the bottom?
How close was the light?
Looks like too much light and possibly watering too often.
Definitely both, I noticed gnats in the soil any tips to get rid of them? you guys are definitely a big help thanks a lot I appreciate everything
I’m still trying to learn a good watering schedule how much should I water it at a time? I try to get run off from the bottom but I feel like I’m watering way to much I almost put half a gallion an still didn’t see any water coming out I’m using a 5gal pot
