Hi all! First grow here. The issue I’m concerned about is one of my three plants is growing dramatically differently than the other two and seems underdeveloped. Here are the details:
I decided to try out the Auto 2.0 mix. I planted one of each seed. I used Fox Happy Frog soil with a bit of coco coir and vermiculite in grow bags. Two 600W full spectrum LEDs. 2x4x5 grow tent. Controlling the humidity well enough. Tent gets a little warm at times, so I’m probably going to move it to a cooler space soon, but it peaks at 80 at its hottest and is usually low-to-mid 70s. 18-6 light cycle, mainly to let the hottest part of the day be light-free to keep those temps down.
Six weeks in, here are the three plants. From left-to-right, OG Kush, Jack Herer, and Bubblegum. Now, I do see the red/yellow on the Jack’s and Bubble’s leaves. The pic doesn’t show it very well. I’m attributing that to the PH being too high, and I’m working on pushing it down. And BBG there is a bit lanky. But you can see that it’s looking like BBG and Jack are indicating they’re going to have a lot of nice buds.
On the other hand, there’s Kushy on the left. Kushy is short, squad, and has no indications of any buds at all. Just lots of nice, green fan leaves. Kushy got the same soil, same water, and same light as her sisters, and she was planted the same day. In fact, she was the first to sprout. I’m not sure what the problem is or if she just has a dramatically different shape/size or bloom time than Bubbles and Jack. As it’s my first grow, I think it’s more likely that I’ve done something wrong, but surely Kushy isn’t a boy or a feminized seed as opposed to an auto?
Any advice/guidance on little Kushy (or on the red/yellow leaf situation, though I’m pretty sure that’s all about the PH keeping it from absorbing certain nutes) would be appreciated. I’m very new to this, but I tried to read, read, read as much as I could before starting. I’m hoping my first grow doesn’t fail completely.
