A question from a fellow grower:
I am a 1st time grower. I received my order on June 5th (10 white widow), went through germination process (w/ 3 seeds) and did 1st several weeks under many 40 watt CFLs. After 2 weeks, then switched them to 400 watt MH. I started having some issues with 2 of the plants a few days before putting them under the MH lights. On 1 of them in particular, the leaves look terrible (curled, small, discolored, etc.) and their growth is stunted. However, the 3rd one is progressing great, It already has a row of 5-lobed leaves. I just was curious if it was something I am doing wrong (the likely candidate) or a genetic issue w/ the seeds. All 3 of the plants are in potting soil and have had the EXACT same conditions since day 1 (light, soil, humidity, water, etc.). I would be happy to send pictures if it would help? I really would like to remedy this issue.
