Can someone please tell me what is wrong with these.
Soil- Miracle-Gro seed starter blue bag
2 are 3 weeks today (top and bottom pic) and one is 2 weeks today (middle pic).
Light cycle is 18/6
Strain- white widow
Started Rapid Start 2 days ago
These are not autoflower
Please help! I’m beginning to think they are defective and I need to start over. I have 5 seeds left of white widow. What should I do? I’m a first time indoor grower
Is this the stuff you used?
If it is, it’s inappropriate for MJ. Right now the plants are experiencing too much fertilizer. At that age they cannot handle it. I would also suggest you reduce the amount of water you are giving them. Either distilled or PH to 6.5 for soil. A couple of teaspoons per day and keep a dome over them to increase humidity. The plants get all of their moisture from the leaves until roots are developed.
Just an FYI: anything that says “moisture control” or added fertilizer is a no no for growing. A good organic potting soil like Fox Farms Happy Frog is about right. Just transplant into one of those soils when you are ready to increase pot size.
@Myfriendis410… that is the stuff. So, should I just start over in a different soil or will they snap out of it. Is there any way I could gently transplant into a better soil now and get them out of what they are in.
Absolutely agree with @Myfriendis410 ! That soil is NOT good for cannabis.
Fox Farms Happy Frog is MUCH better and does not burn new, tender plants. Fox Farms Ocean Forest is also good but is a little strong for new seedlings. Overall Happy Frog has given me very good results. My current grow used Happy Frog and did awesome. It was recommended by a friend here and he was right ! This was the first time I used it and I am staying with it.
@TxGrowman I was told happy frog was no good. I don’t know though. What about strawberry fields. I guess what I really want to know is why my plants look deformed. ( please see pictures above )
use fox farm warrior for seedlings then transplant to fox farm ocean forest, just my 2 cents. your plants root system should not be to complex at this stage, i would transplant asap
@daddydays, should I try to gently knock off some of the soil on the roots before putting in fresh
i would make a circular cut out around the plant, dont remove the soil that the roots are in, so you can transplant some old soil with the new soil,( hope i explained it right)
had same issue last year on my 1st grow, got new soil and it worked fine, remember its a weed and weeds are hard to kill
@daddydays thanks for the info. I didn’t know from the looks of the plants if they were deformed from the seed or what happened. I don’t want to waist them if I can keep from it because I’m 3 weeks in on 2 of them and 2 weeks on the other. Do you think I should start over or try to salvage what I have. And indeed, weeds are hard to kill
My two cents worth @Rickandbobbyd you should carefully transplant as @daddydays suggested.
You have nothing to lose by trying.
i would just transplant into fox farm ocean forest but do not give it any nutrients for 3-4 weeks, just ph water
Fox farm of won’t be to hot @daddydays
They will make it just fine if u get them into some good soil and the leaves look fat and full of water. They need very little water for a while. Get them under strong light and have a fan blowing them to toughen up your stems.
Yes it probably will most cut it with happy frog this early
dont think so, just use the ph water for a few weeks, because it has all that good nuts in it already. next time to start out use ff warrior for your seedlings with no nuts, just use a spray bottle to moisten the soil,
Should I put them back under a humidome? I took it off a day ago. Should they be all the way on or cracked to get fresh air
my advise and its just mine, if they been in the dome for 2 weeks in would take the out to give ir fresh air, this summer when i start my grow my seedlings will only stay in my dome for 2 weeks then they will br transplanted into 7 gallon pots and be placed into a small green house till mid summer, then they will be out in the open air
I would think that they would be bigger than they are after 3 weeks. These are only about an inch maybe 2 tall but have 3 nodes just really difficult to see where the new node starts. I’m really beginning to think they are bad plants. I will transplant them but won’t hold my breath
