Super silver haze. First time grower

Looking for some help, our leaves have this yellow on the edges and we can’t figure out why. This is Super Silver Haze about 7 weeks along. 22-27”

Hmmm how are you feeding her? How often? What nutes? Calmag supplements?

How often do u water?

And do u check for pH?

Heck support ticket time. Ill brb

I agree with purple and gold more information would be great but one thing comes to mind looking at the pictures the plants are stretching for light maybe not enough light maybe the distance on your light. . Good luck

Those are the happiest stretchy plants I’ve ever seen. I agree with both above, needs more light to stop the stretching, and maybe a calcium deficiency, but we need more info on what and how you’re feeding. Do your buckets have holes in them for drainage? They don’t like standing water in the bottom. Other than that, they look pretty healthy. Just some small tweaks needed I bet.

edit: I’m just thinking about what they’d look like if they were outside in the sun once those side shoots take off :star_struck:

edit 2: Go ahead and fill the buckets to the top with soil. More roots = more fruits!

First off: y’all are the BEST! This forum is awesome! No nutrients/feeding it’s my first grown. Basic red light, added calcium supplement about a week ago. I will add holes to the bottom of the buckets and add soil to fill to the top.

We were using bottled water :grimacing: now we have switched to rain water (better ph here in rain than tap)

Also is “stretchy” bad? I’ll move the light down closer to them, I was afraid the yellow was from the light being too close. I’ll keep ya posted with pics of the grow! Anyone grow SSH before?!

Thanks over all your plants don’t look bad just need to get more light and you will see a huge difference. Lots of good people and knowledge here to help you. Have fun with your grow.

@daz49 grew some SSH, he might be able to give you some pointers. Can you be more specific about the light? If you have an option for blue and red, turn both on, and that will help with the stretching, too. Long internodal spacing isn’t a huge deal, really, if you have the space for the height. The problem is with indoor grows the lighting is nothing like the intensity of the sun, and once you have a thicker canopy, it’ll block most of the light to the lower branches. Keeping the lighting closer to the plant when it’s younger will reduce the spacing between nodes, making a more bushy, shorter plant. You could also use topping or training techniques to control the height. All that said, if you have plenty of light and space, what you might be able to do at this point is gently bend the plant over and tie it down to something, so that all the branches are more even and can all get the same light.

Hey guys! Just checking in. The light we are using is a HPS light. There is no blue/red/white options anymore. These photos were taken today, I am currently doing 18:6 for light and not 100% sure when I should start 12:12. Let me know when you would start 12:12 for these ladies!!!

Lumateck ballast with a high pressure sodium bulb. Is what we are using for our light currently

They look ready whenever you are. The main factor is height. It’s hard to anticipate if you’re new to growing or new to the particular strain, but they will stretch anywhere from 50% to even 300% once they begin flowering. They’re trying to get up there and catch all the male pollen they can (in nature). If you can gradually lower your light some, it may help them stretch less. But be careful not to get too low and burn them.

With the light I am using, I can not lower it any more. We have had some burning on our leafs in the past. Hoping to go 12/12 soon this weekend!

I failed to mention that my newest grow (just a few weeks old) has a couple of Super Silver Haze. My current grow (link below) has one Super Lemon Haze. I really like the Haze derivatives.
