Hi all! Just getting my first grow going. Finally got the tent temperature and humidity controlled for the most part- 75-80 degree ambient air and about the same for leave temp, 60-70% humidity. Got it under a Mars Hydro tsw2000 set to a little over 50% brightness. It’s an autoflower Gorilla Glue. I have it in a peat moss jiffy pellet starting. It’s 9 days old now and has significantly slowed in growth and the leaves are lightening in color and are drooping. Not sure if it’s over or under watering or another issue. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
too much wet…makes leaves yellow.
next time avoid peat stuff for seedlings. dun look too bad, but, maybe needs lite nutes?
Gotcha. I just bought a started kit and the jiffy pellet came with it. Was trying to eyeball and do a light spritzing of the soil every couple days when the top looked dry but still learning. I haven’t watered in a few days now. Should I bring the humidity in my tent down and keep not watering until it perks up? What kind of nutes should I try and how much. Very new to this and haven’t gotten into learning about all that yet. Thank you for the advice.
She doesn’t need nutes. Just needs to dry out some. Keep an eye out for damping off. If she flops over at soil level you can try propping her up with a split drinking straw splint, but no guarantee that will save her. If she doesn’t damp off, go easy on water. Seedlings don’t need much.
Thank you. I’ll keep letting her dry out and keep an eye on it. Should I lower the humidity or turn my light up? Leaves stay 75 to 80 with where I have it set and hanging about 30 inches above it.
Light’s probably fine. Might bring the Rh down to 50-60% and turn a fan on a low setting blowing on her, if you don’t already have one in there.
Have a fan oscillating lightly over her. I’ll bring the humidity down a little and wait it out. Hopefully save her. Thanks for the help!
You’re welcome. Best of luck with your grow!
