Sick Autoflower

20210523_085638
Sick Girl, ok beautiful people. She’s like 6 weeks old potted in 5gal fabric FFHF amended with perlite and couple cups of worm casting. Seedsman Amnesia Autoflower. Her sister sadly died. I burned them with a hot liquid chicken manure watering as well as spraying the leaves with a tea made from the same liquid. Should I just see what happens or is she to stressed and stunted to fool with?

I have since flushed with 6.5 PH tap water that has set overnight. This one is hanging in there. I’ve started a couple White Widow in the same fashion but will use a little epson salt, cal mag and molasses. Outside in Central Alabama.

In my limited personal experience (1st grow) and from reading on here a lot it can be tricky judging a small plant in a big pot because sometimes it’ll sit there seemingly doing nothing but it’s really working where you can’t see building roots. Your plant looks pretty good imo

With being an auto and 6 weeks old should be roughly 2 weeks in flower by now. U can leave it and hope she gives u something but she is obviously super stunted. What is the ph going in and ppm going in and out of the soils. There is an issue somewhere with the sharp jagged leaves cupped upwards @MidwestGuy @CMichGrower @BobbyDigital

I missed that part :confounded:my bad…yes definitely should be bigger and further along at 6 weeks…

Yeah she’s definitely stunted. Zooming in at the top it looks like flower has initiated but could just be new growth. She’ll likely be a little bonsai plant. Being outside I’d just let her do her thing. It’s not like you’re wasting any electricity on her.

Yes I’m gonna try to nurse it along. I’m retired and recovering from low back surgery.
The other 2 I’ve got started are Fast Buds White Widow autos potted in FFHF with perlite. Can I get by with cal mag and molasses? Kinda wanted to stay as organic as possible.

Thanks for the response. My track record is awful in a tent so thought I would try outside. I can move them around for stealth and sun. Any tips will be appreciated and applied.

What soil are you using. A plant that size won’t require much for nutrients. Your soil may have enough to sustain her.

Fox Farm Happy Frog with perlite and worm casting.

For as much soil as that small plant has it’ll probably be fine to sustain it throughout. Molasses won’t hurt at all. It’ll help keep those microbes going.

She might be done…but won’t hurt to let her ride it out just to see what happens. Yeah, autos don’t like hot soils or hot feeds. With autos you want to start small and see how they respond then adjust up or down accordingly. Live and learn and I bet you learned what not to do next time :sunglasses:

Nutrient overload for such a young plant
