New to growing?

Will adding Alaska 5-1-1 (1/2 tsp:1/2 gal water)and a tad of gypsum harm these youngsters?

I’d transplant those into bigger pots. They look to be root bound. If your soil has fertilizer in it, I wouldn’t feed until they get bigger. If in Promix or another inert medium, you need to feed once the cotylidons yellow and die. :v:

They are in peat pots which I plan to move this week into pre-filled 7 gal holes. The dirt is just miracle grow garden soil mixed with good ole Tenn top soil😁. I appreciate the advice.

I am assuming the cotylidons are the 2 small leaves at the bottom of stem?

Hello my friend I agree with @MattyBear, and I don’t think AFF should hurt them, but like @MattyBear said after the cotyledon shrivel away and the gypsum is a great addition to your soil @highcountrygal, has been using with great results, good luck on your growing. I

Mrcrabs, do I need to trim (top) these leaves or will this be a bud site?

@Mrcrabs @MattyBear oops forgot to add little hashtag thingy😕. I have 6 plants all from bag seed, plan to purchase some but figured I’d let these be my practice run. If all turn out to be female, I’d like to try my hand at what i believe you guys call LST on 1 or 2 of them…key word try!

I’ve grown great buds from bags seeds, topping the plant is totally up to you my friend, they look really healthy, if you decide to top you will get bushier plants, if you don’t you it should get taller. I personally don’t lst my outdoor plants, you can but most people do that indoor since they don’t get natural sun

Am i correct to assume that buds will produce where my knive tip is? Also, be ok to send another pic tomorrow, I’d like to ask if I topped it correctly? I basically snipped the main stalk just above 4-5th set of leaves

Sounds about right my friend. You should get two colas growing from where you sniped. Good luck, I’ll be watching. My mom lives in Chattanooga, beautiful scenery that way my friend. @Tennhills

I was hoping to get some guidance/advice on my girls. I picked up a couple clones about 2 weeks ago. They seem to be healthy just growing uneven. What should I do/how to correct it?

Morning @Tennhills Do they move? or does it look like bug poop? Or spots on the leaves? It’s hard to tell in your pic. Can you get a closer up pic?

White spots could be WPM (white powdery mildew). The darker spots, I’m not completely sure from the pic.
